A live musical extravaganza is happening on Sunday 18th November at the Eagle Inn, to try to help save the Salford Star which is rapidly running out of funds and is in danger of closing.

The benefit gig stars Kraut punk psych rockers, The Sandells, featuring Tim Lyons of the 'semi-legendary" local band The Things; the funky post-punk hard rock band, Four Candles, featuring Ian 'Moet Moss, best known as the charismatic front man of The Hamsters; the catchy, melodic pop-punk of Sticky; and Matthew Hopkins, a three piece who, in their own words do "original punk(ish)/folk(ish) cries of pain, joy and political ggggrrrr...". A perfect accompaniment to the Salford Star...

The night is being hosted by Red Rec Records with The Sandells and it's just £5 entry, in advance or on the door. More details on the bands to follow but in the meantime, stick it in your diary and go mosh for the Star...

"It's a great gesture, and we're thrilled that local musicians have really come to our aid with this gig and also the All Materials of Value Have Been Removed benefit CD" says Salford Star editor and co-founder Stephen Kingston "We can't thank them all enough.

"Independent journalism is vital to hold those in authority to account but the Star also does loads of articles on cultural events and bands that otherwise might not get any media attention" he adds "By supporting the Star you will also be helping to support the live music scene in the city and lots more besides..."

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.
