Indie star’s secret past as a blood-curdling zombie

From South Manchester Reporter:
THIS is pop star Ian Parton as his thousands of his fans have never seen him before.

The ex-Chorlton guitarist is leader of the highly-regarded indie group, the Go! Team, one of the coolest bands on the music scene.

But, unknown to many, he played a minor role in an amateur zombie film with a group of friends in the bohemian suburb before finding fame with the band, which was last year nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

The short film, called Zombie Nosh, was shot on Super 8 film at a number of different locations in Chorlton ten years ago.

Images from the film have never been shown publicly - until now. In the silent comedy, Ian plays a zombie living under a railway bridge on the suburbs deserted train line.
