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

TOOTHBRUSHES AND SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

Star date: 14th January 2019

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".
