MAXINE PEAKE PLAYS PANDORA IN NEW CHRIS FLYNN SALFORD VIDEO
 

Star date: 4th January 2014

PANDORA VIDEO AND SINGLE RELEASE

The new video to accompany Chris Flynn's single Pandora is now available to watch on You Tube previewing the track's official release on February 1st. The evocative video, featuring Maxine Peake and shot at Salford's Eagle Inn, is well worth a watch.

Full details here…


Back in November, the Salford Star featured singer songwriter Chris Flynn. His tunes kick cans down the old and new streets of the city, acknowledging larger than strife characters and Ewan MacColl-inspired backdrops en route (see previous interview and article - click here).

His eagerly awaited album will be out in spring but in the meantime there's a single called Pandora being released on February 1st, and, as a preview, the accompanying video is now up on You Tube.

Pandora is one of those songs that sticks in the psyche, and Chris told the Star that "The old canal in the song relates directly to Dirty Old Town; that's a comment on the changing face of Salford as well as looking back to the past, …and perhaps an ex lover."

The stunningly shot video, directed by James Statham and filmed in the Eagle Inn, features Maxine Peake as Pandora, as a normal night down the boozer turns uber melodramatic with a few yearning looks across the bar room.

Pandora is on You Tube now – see the embedded video or click here

Pandora will be available to buy from Piccadilly Records, from iTunes or direct from the Chris Flynn website from 1st February - further details click here.

Chris and friends play live at The Lowry on Friday 18th April – ticket details to follow on www.chrisflynn.org.uk

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.
