Fresh from working with Kraftwerk legend, Wolfgang Flur, and touring with OMD, Tiny Magnetic Pets arrive at The Peer Hat tomorrow night, 4th November. It should be a lively encounter and definitely one to file under 'not be missed'.

Bringing their big stage chops to an intimate trendy Northern Quarter venue, TMP are a nailed-on cert to deliver the goods. They are top synth-pop act with great presence and a charismatic vocalist. The support act couldn't better for the Irish electronica group. Salford's very own Factory Acts bring their brooding, Goth electro along to make this a great double-header.

The band'singer, Matt Davies, is looking forward to playing with TMP at a venue that's becoming a real home from home..."It's great to play with a Dublin band gaining rapid recognition" he says "...The Peer Hat, it's at the heart of the buzzing DIY live music scene in Manchester. We spend a lot of time there!"

Factory Acts released their three track EP, Are You The Singer?, for Cassette Store Day (Oct 13th). It questions the assumption that a woman in a band must be the vocalist and uses samples of musicians discussing their experiences in studios and venues.

The lead track condenses anecdotes and humorous quotes, and is set to an electro-dance backdrop...'So, are you all lesbians?...Are you sure?' The track looks at the condescending way that women in music are treated.

Are You The Singer? highlights how certain people struggle to comprehend the difficult notion that is shock, horror...a female musician. Leave The World To Us is unmistakably Factory Acts; it's a classy tune, taken from a 2017 EP. It has been remixed and the result is an uplifting tune with a great Gothic vocal.

The lead track returns for an epic reprisal and it is easy to imagine this as a euphoric closer to live sets. It evokes memories of Blue Monday with its Chicago-house beats and effortless trance. They have a vast back-catalogue to sculpt their set from and have earned a reputation for delivering an elegant yet dramatic live show...

"We have to consider [the] predicted nature of audience and length of set" explains Matt "If [it's a] new audience we play the ones which are more accessible. If familiar faces, we have to shake it up a bit and try new stuff out."

Catch Factory Acts with Tiny Magnetic Pets and Rodney Cromwell at The Peer Hat tomorrow - it's an unmissable event for fans of classy pop, electronica or just great music in general.

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
