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

SALFORD RED DEVILS FACING BAILIFFS FOR NON-PAYMENT OF KIT BILL

SALFORD RUGBY CLUB GETS CCJ FROM SHIRT SUPPLIERS KOOGA

The Salford Star understands that yesterday, as Salford Mayor Ian Stewart was praising Salford Red Devils' owner Marwan Koukash in the Council chamber, a County Court Judgement (CCJ) was served on the rugby club by shirt suppliers Kooga over non-payment of a bill amounting to thousands of pounds.

"Those people who pay attention to these things know that the current owner of Salford Red Devils has invested over £1.5million of his own money into players and he intends to invest more, stabilising the club" said Stewart at the Council meeting.

COUNCIL STREET CLEANING AND REFUSE SERVICES DIVERTED TO SALFORD RED DEVILS

Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart got himself in a right mess today trying to justify the handing of up to £164,000 towards Salford Red Devils' match day costs. First he told the full meeting of Salford Council that the money wasn't taken from the revenue budget which pays for services. Then he said it was.

The Salford Star can reveal that up to five staff from the Council's environment services have been directed to cleaning up after Salford Red Devils home matches, while street cleansing services around the city have been decimated.

AS PARENTS FUME OVER TRANSPORT CUTS THEIR DRIVER CHAUFFEURS THE CEREMONIAL MAYOR

"I am totally disgusted...this is just another slap in the face" parent

While parents and carers of people with disabilities struggle with having their transport removed as part of brutal cuts to services, the Salford Star understands that one of the drivers of the specially adapted buses has been seconded to chauffeur the Ceremonial Mayor around the city for the week.

Today a High Court date of 15th October has been set for a judicial review into the cuts – but while Salford Council agreed to provide an interim transport service until the hearing, parents and carers are saying that this simply isn't happening.

WHIT LANE SALFORD REGENERATION FAILURE SURVEY

Star date: 16th September 2014

SALFORD COUNCIL – A `MENACE BOGGED DOWN IN FAILURE AND INCOMPETENCE'

The author of a research paper which absolutely blasted Salford City Council and co for the shocking failure of the regeneration of Whit Lane estate in East Salford is back, asking residents to speak out about their experiences in the `Forgotten Estate'.

Dr Andrew Wallace, a senior lecturer at the University of Lincoln, wrote how residents of Charlestown and Lower Kersal faced a "legacy of  injustice ...through inaction and failure", leaving a "decimated landscape" and a "casual disregard for residents and the limbo they have been forced to endure". Now he seeks those residents' views.
