Rap­pers de­light over award nod

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen hip hop act Hec­tor Biz­erk have been nom­i­nated for an award.

Last year the band re­leased the short film The Bird That Never Flew, which com­bined some of the words and sounds of the band with po­etry by Liz Lochhead.

And the film is now up for a Torc Award of Ex­cel­lence at the Celtic Me­dia Fes­ti­val, in the young peo­ple cat­e­gory.

The fes­ti­val show­cases the best work from Brit­tany, Corn­wall, Gali­cia, Ire­land, the Isle of Man, Scot­land and Wales and has pre­vi­ously at­tracted high-pro­file guests like Tilda Swin­ton, Rhys Ifans, Peter Mul­lan and Ken Loach.

The fes­ti­val will take place from April 20 to April 22 in Dun­gar­van, Co. Water­ford, Ire­land.

Hec­tor’s drum­mer Au­drey Tait said:“We are so pleased to have been nom­i­nated for this award as it’s a film we are re­ally proud of and it’s great for ev­ery­one in­volved to get a bit of recog­ni­tion.”

The group are cur­rently gear­ing up to launch their new al­bum, which col­lects ma­te­rial from their re­cent se­ries of EP’s, at the Art School in Glas­gow on Fri­day, April 22.

Tick­ets are £10 and on sale now.
