SALFORD MISFITS GET THE RAP
 

Star date: 10th August 2010  

A summer of Salford rap begins this weekend when The Misfits, featuring Briggzy, appear at Super Salford Saturday at Chimney Pot Park in Langworthy.

We caught up with the cream of Salford's rappers as they shot a new video in Worsley Woods.

It's a damp Thursday morning deep in Worsley Woods, and off a mud splattered footpath where squirrels fear to tread a group of Salford rappers are interrupting the quiet green foliage of the surrounding trees. These are The MisfitsKamo, Notes, Rick Charles and Briggzy – shooting a video for their track, Approach With Caution, eagerly awaited by a growing number of online fans.

The Misfits are a new collective of rappers, two months old and already in the regional final of Open Mic UK and with a string of live performances lined up, starting with Super Salford Saturday at Chimney Pot Park in Langworthy this Saturday afternoon.

At the centre of the collective is Briggzy, building a name as a solo artist but always gathering in like minded Salford rappers to waz up the scene.

"It's a collective but it started out just as a CD" he laughs "I was putting together a CD called The Misfits with Salford artists and then we started working together and just kind of formed into a group, The Misfits, but we're all artists in our own right.

"I've been doing it for four years now and I'm working on my first solo album Gingerfication and a national tour for that" Briggzy adds "That's my main push at the minute but I'm using my own name to bring these through as well. At the minute all the gigs are titled `Briggzy and The Misfits' but eventually I want it just to say `The Misfits'. Wherever I go these are on stage behind me. It's like a little family. I'm just trying to push it, trying to build a little scene here."

The Misfits formed after Briggzy invited Kamo down to the studio at his house on the Height and Notes came along. They joined rapper and engineer, Rick Charles, who's also kind of living at the house. It really is a little family.

"We've all come together to do our own thing, like to try and get Salford on the map and show people the talent – because there is some talent in Salford, you can see it" says Notes "We come together in sessions and then we just wack a beat on, think of a concept and then write to it and make jams."

Now The Misfits are ready to take on allcomers with a CD due out at the end of the year and live gigs at the Salford Music Festival (Hope Pub 10th September), The King's Arms (25th September) and the Open Mic Final at The Willows in October, as well as Chimney Pot Park this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Briggzy's plugging away at getting a Salford rap night together, if he can find a suitable venue, and collaborating with other artists, like Whit Lane rapper, Samir Harmim.

Prolific is the word. It's not just Worsley Woods that's getting interrupted this summer…

GOVERNMENT BLOCKS SALFORD CLADDING REPLACEMENT

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL CAN'T ACCESS £400MILLION GOVERNMENT CLADDING FUND

Salford City Council has been told by the Government that it can't access the £400million public fund to help with the cost of replacing dangerous cladding on the nine Pendleton blocks because it's part of a PFI.

Nor will the Government allow the Council to loan Pendleton Together Operating Limited money from its £25million fund set aside for the cladding. In short, it's a complete mess.

HARROP FOLD HEAD SLAMS ‘PERSONAL VENDETTA’ OF SALFORD CITY COUNCIL

Star date: 19th September 2018

DREW POVEY ACCUSES SALFORD COUNCIL OF 'HEAVY HANDED' 'VENDETTA'

"I'm speaking up for myself but also all the leaders who have been in touch to say the same happened to them #TakeAStand..." Drew Povey

Drew Povey, the Executive Head of Harrop Fold in Little Hulton, has resigned from his post, slamming Salford Council's "heavy handed approach" while investigating 'administrative errors' at the school and accusing it of a "personal vendetta".

In an open letter to the school's governors, Drew Povey writes that he refuses to walk away from the school with a settlement and accept a gagging clause.  So he's gone public...to #TakeAStand.
