Bez, formerly of the Happy Mondays, has officially launched his campaign to be Salford's next MP.
Bez, whose real name is Mark Berry, launched his campaign poster outside Salford Cathedral – and he's running as leader of the Reality party.
Bez, an anti-fracking activist, will take on Rebecca Long-Bailey in a staunchly Labour seat.
Here's what you can expect of him while on the campaign trail.
There's already lot of excitement about his plans for parliament.
Although not everyone's so positive.
This post has been updated to correct the fact that the Labour candidate for Salford in Eccles in May 2015 is Rebecca Long-Bailey, not Hazel Blears.
