Not sure about no hot ashes, was like steam room night in Sound Control. These lads from Stockport have been going about their craft for a few years now. Putting the hard work in to master the art of stage / performance and last night was one of the best shows I've seen in this town for a while. 

Just back from the Isle of Wight Festival and more festival dates already in the diary No Hot Ashes have to be included in the must see batch of bands. 

Salford Lads Club

Salford Lads Club ©trust a fox

Salford Lads Club is more than an iconic image for The Smiths ( Stephen Wright ) it dates back to 1903 when the club was purpose built and designed by architect Henry Lord.

Taken from the website https://salfordladsclub.org.uk "Salford Lads’ Club was part of the wider movement of lads clubs set up by local companies and philanthropists between 1886 and 1910 in many industrialised cities, particularly The North West of England. The aim was to provide positive alternatives to the teenage street gangs of the time with sports, arts , cultural and educational activities. Salford Lads’ Club was one of the few to include a work bureau, finding employment for lads aged 13 and upwards "
