MARK E SMITH AND ED BLANEY: THE TRAIN
 

Star date: 3rd November 2018

STUNNING RE-WORKING OF THE FALL CLASSIC, THE TRAIN

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

AFTER LONG BITTER FIGHT, THE GRANGE SHUTS

After years of campaigning and protests, The Grange home for children with severe complex needs finally shut yesterday, after the last resident was shunted out of the city.

"Salford Council should be ashamed of themselves for getting rid of such a valuable facility" says Rebecca Howarth, parent and Save The Grange Again campaigner "We have fought the Council for nearly two years in a bid to keep the care home open but unfortunately we have reached the end of the road."
