Rappers delight over award nod
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.
