MARK E SMITH AND ED BLANEY: THE TRAIN
 

Star date: 3rd November 2018

STUNNING RE-WORKING OF THE FALL CLASSIC, THE TRAIN

Classic track The Train by The Fall gets re-mixed, re-mastered, re-worked and resplendented-up on a six track, different mix double CD featuring the voice of the late Mark E Smith with Ed Blaney, done in a sympathetically smart, off-its-head way, and produced by Mike Bennett. It's a proper magnificent Salford tribute.

Approved and initiated by the late Mark E Smith, a double CD with six different versions of The Fall classic, The Train, has been released this week.

Featuring the voice of Mark E, with long time The Fall collaborator Ed Blaney re-working the hexagon of tracks along with producer Mike Bennett, there's a Disorient Express mix, a Dark Shunter mix, an Extended Shunter mix, Drum 'n Bass mix and a Platform 40 re-mix at forty minutes long, together with the forty minute original.

There's also a Gonzo mix on YouTube* that captures the essence of Mark E, with a psychedelically smudged video that takes you on a journey starting at Salford Crescent station and ending up somewhere far out, as an incessant beat and galloping guitars speed the track along.

And within the vocal mash-up going off in the neverlands is the distinctive voice of Mark E, together with a whole carriage of guests who could be John Robb, Dave Simpson, GM Mayor Andy Burnham or any of the others who crop up on the CDs. Ed Blaney has definitely got a ticket to ride...

"This all came about when the owner of Cog Sinister asked if I'd be interested in re-working this alongside some other stuff I've done with Mark over the years along with Mike Bennett" says Ed "Ironically, Mark had insisted we should work together. I'm really pleased with the end result; it's more of an art thing, especially the Platform 40, the forty minute mix...incredible stuff and credit to Mike Bennett who's worked some great magic on this. I'm sure Mark would love it too..."

The Train is out now.

This edition comes with a 24 page booklet, and the first 250 will be signed by Ed Blaney – click here for more details

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.
