PETER HOOK THE SALFORD STUDIO AND HAC RECORDS LAUNCH
 

Star date: 24th April 2011

HACIENDA RECORDS DIGITAL LAUNCH AND LIVE DATE

FAC 51 The Hacienda launches its revamped digital label Hacienda Records this week ready for the debut EP from Peter Hook's The Light on May 9th.

The Light's line up includes ace ex Happy Mondays singer Rowetta guesting and the EP, 1102/2011, features the previously unfinished Joy Division track, Pictures In My Mind, newly recorded at Salford's Blueprint Studio.

Full story here…


Peter Hook just never stops. To keep up with his DJing dates, book and label launches, live gigs, speaking tours and record releases is a full time job in itself.

Hooky's currently on the case with a digital label re-launch, an EP and a couple of live dates.

Firstly, there's the re-vamp of FAC 51 The Hacienda label Hacienda Records at www.fac51thehacienda.com ready for the release of The Light's EP on May 9th.

The EP is called 1102/2011 after the date it was recorded at Salford's Blueprint Studio, and features four tracks including Pictures In My Mind, an unfinished Joy Division song that's been completed and re-recorded following the discovery of an old rehearsal tape nicked in 1977. The vocals are by Hooky himself, while ex Happy Mondays diva, Rowetta, sings the other three Joy Division tracks, Insight, New Dawn Fades and Atmosphere, following her live guest appearance with The Light on tour.

The EP's cover by James Chadderton, with input from Hooky and the band, features the old Hacienda site on Whitworth Street looking like it's had the Salford Council treatment…

 "After seeing the recent events in Japan with the earthquake, the picture sends a chill down my spine now when I see it" says Hooky "I was very impressed with James's work when I first came across it and I kept leaving messages for him as I wanted him to do the cover. I suggested Whitworth Street because it remains our spiritual home, and I must admit I thought that the new Hacienda building could do with some remodelling!"

Meanwhile, The Light have announced a new live date of May 19th at The Factory. The first date, on the 18th, is now sold out as fans clammer to see the band perform Joy Division's Closer album.

The line-up for The Light is Peter Hook on vocals and bass, Jack Bates on bass, Nat Wason on guitar, Andy Poole on keyboards and Paul Kehoe on drums. Rowetta performs as guest vocalist at selected gigs, including those at The Factory. 

1102 / 2011, the debut EP from Peter Hook's The Light will be released via Hacienda Records on Monday 9th May 2011. Further details at

As Manchester continues its takeover of Salford, a Salford girl is aiming to turn the tide and take the title of Miss Manchester.

SALFORD COUNCIL PAYING OVER £200,000 FOR GREENGATE SQUARE FOUNTAINS MANAGEMENT

CASH-STRAPPED COUNCIL PAYS OVER £4,000 A WEEK FOR FOUNTAINS MANAGEMENT

PRIVATISATION OF SALFORD COUNCIL ADULT SOCIAL CARE

Star date: 26th March 2015

ELDERLY AND DISABLED PUT OUT TO MARKET IN MUTUAL MAYHEM

This week, Salford Council confirmed the hiving off of £10.5million worth of adult social care services to a new `mutual', to be called Aspire. Salford City Mayor, Ian Stewart, has called the move `radical' – but a 24 page Council report on the privatisation shows the success of the mutual relies on making profits, or a `surplus', by flogging services to other councils and grabbing 10% of the `market'. There are no immediate savings to the Council.

The report also boasts that Salford has the `second lowest proportion of Council budget allocated to Adult Social Care in the North West region'. What's going on?
