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…

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
