    favourate lists here <famous or obscure - discogs/gossip etc>

    I was always fond of Laverne Browne, and The Colours for different reasons. Have never compiled a proper list though....

    Trufflepig Believes it's not butter!

    The Hot Puppies are lovely, and regularly produce sexy, soulfull ballads and stick in your brain from the first play foot stompers.

    Just saw Halflight at the Friends of the Earth gig on Thursday, and I was very impressed.

    Sort of PJ Harvey-ish, to my ears, although their website claims that their sound "manages to merge bands such as Coldplay and with someone like Cat Power". Hmmm. Never heard of Cat Power, and Coldplay suck ass, but Halflight rock.

    I'm off to Spillers to buy the EP.

    Laverne Brown used to live in my road. Nice bloke.

    Young Marble Giants and Euros Childs are my Welsh favs. :)

    Glad to see you put "Dansette" in your top ten.

    We've reformed! We're alive and well and gigging in and around Cardiff and the Vale. You can check us out at for gig gude, music, videos etc.

    Did you Know that Tommy Riley (Mr. Red Beans & Rice) was once the drummer with Love Sculpture?

    The Keys are very, very good. They used to be called Murry the Hump but changed their name a few years back. Second album on the way and they gig often in and around Cardiff.
    MC Mabon has done some great, eclectic stuff. He's a bit like a Welsh Beck!
    Llwybr Llaethog were and are pioneers.
    Geraint Jarman is the all-time Welsh legend for me though! Worth checking out all his albums from the seventies/eighties, especially for reggae/dub fans.
    Super Furries' earlier incarnation with Gruff and Daf as Ffa Coffi Pawb were brilliant. Other great Welsh language acts from eighties and nineties that you can find on You Tube include Crisalau Plastig, Pop Negatif Wastad, Ty Gwydr, Y Cyrff (basically Catatonia before Cerys) and U-Thant.

    Currently enjoying:

    Future of the Left
    The Joy Formidable

    Also really like the stuff being put out by S.Wales hip-hop label Associated Minds. It's refreshing to hear people rapping about Barry.
