Star date: 9th July 2017

THE STONE ROSES MEET GUNS N ROSES AND THE ROLLING STONES!

Stones n' Roses
Saturday 15th July
King's Arms

Stones n' Roses, from San Diego, describe themselves as "a blasphemous/genius combination of the Stone Roses, GnR and the Rolling Stones". They dress up as Guns n Roses, play Stone Roses covers and mash it all up with bits of Rolling Stones and GnR classics... 'Revolutionary and ridiculous', they play the King's Arms as part of the GM Fringe and their first ever tour.

Back in the day, Victoria Coren's dad, Alan, wrote a book of amusing prose and he titled it Golfing For Cats, with the cover graphic a swastika. At the time, the biggest selling books were about golf, cats and Nazis, so he figured he couldn't go wrong...

...Fast forward to the now and we have San Diego based Stones n' Roses; what they call "a blasphemous/genius combination of the Stone Roses, GnR and the Rolling Stones". They dress up as Guns n Roses, play Stone Roses covers and sprinkle it all with bits of Rolling Stones and GnR classics What could possibly go wrong?

"While audiences in the US have enjoyed watching a schizophonic singer switch between the moves of Jagger, Brown and Rose and hearing Welcome To The Jungle smash right into I Wanna Be Adored, the Roses songs are mostly lost on Americans" the band states, adding that there are precisely 28 Roses fans in California.

"When you live in California and play Stone Roses songs, there's only one thing to do" they insist "start swimming..."

They reckon the indie music motherland will "really get it" and so they arrive this month for their first ever tour of the UK, playing Manchester Zombie Shack on Friday 14th July, and the King's Arms in Salford on Saturday 15th July, as part of the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival. And the band love the Salford connection...

"The Smiths are more popular in southern California than anywhere else in America, so the iconic photo of them in front of the Lads Club always made it a dream destination for me" singer Ian Brownstone told the Salford Star "We can't wait to pose under that sign....if they'll let us. As big as they were, I was shockingly more of a New Order guy in high school, so the connection was still unknowingly there. I never got to see the Mondays but I wore out Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches in college. 

"The King's Arms is the very first venue outside of San Diego to have us" he adds "My jaw dropped when I saw photos of it. Hearing that Paul Heaton had once owned it made it all the more amazing for this Anglophile.  Without the King's Arms and the Fringe Festival's acceptance, we never would've tried to make a tour out of this. We literally owe it all to Salford. You've obviously got great taste!"

With production advice from Stones Roses producer, John Leckie, and a front man called Ian Brownstone, there's sure to be an eager audience for the most ridiculous, yet somehow sublime, Stone Roses covers ever. Isn't there?

"Sometimes we piss off the purists" states the band "People stomp in crying 'Blasphemy', then stumble away gasping 'Brilliant'."

As Ian Brown himself once said, 'It's not where you're from, it's where you're at...' Fuck knows where this lot are at, but it's sure going to be one hell of a night down at the King's Arms...unmissable, we'd say!

SALFORD TOWER BLOCK CLADDING CRISIS WILL COST MILLIONS OF POUNDS AND COULD TAKE YEARS TO SOLVE

Star date: 20th July 2017

RESIDENTS COULD 'VOTE WITH THEIR FEET' AND LEAVE ADMITS COUNCIL LEAD MEMBER

The Salford tower block cladding crisis could take years to sort out and will cost millions of pounds that the Council doesn't have, civic leaders told a full meeting of Salford City Council yesterday as they criticised the Tory Government's response post-Grenfell.

Meanwhile, as concrete boards are starting to be installed over exposed insulation on the blocks, Lead Member, Bill Hinds, said residents could start "voting with their feet" and leave their homes.

SALFORD CITY MAYOR TO FACE PROTESTS FROM HOMELESS AT HOUSING CONFERENCE

Star date: 19th July 2017

SALFORD LADS CLUB AFFORDABLE HOUSING CONFERENCE TO FACE PROTESTS

Tomorrow, 20th July, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, is to be the keynote speaker at a 'housing crisis' conference, hosted by the National Housing Federation and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation at Salford Lads Club.

Dennett will be setting out a new 'affordable housing vision' for Greater Manchester but homeless campaigners will be protesting and holding a procession from the Lads Club to a squat at Hulme Hippodrome. Salford City Council has been bulldozing affordable housing for the last decade and allowing developers to evade contributing to new affordable housing.

MORE GREATER MANCHESTER FIRE SERVICE CUTS COULD BE ON THE WAY

Star date: 17th July 2017

AS INQUIRY INTO MANCHESTER ARENA BOMB ATTACK BEGINS, MORE FIRE CUTS COULD BE IMPOSED

With a formal 'debrief', or inquiry, into the response to the Manchester Arena bomb attack due to begin - and with communities worried about fire safety in the wake of Grenfell Tower - behind the scenes Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, and his team are looking at 'redesigning' the fire and rescue service - which inevitably means cuts and possible mergers with other blue light services.

"I think there clearly are some, er, sensitivities around that and we'll have to take those into account but yes that is on the agenda" Deputy GM Mayor Beverly Hughes said recently.
