    Um, I don't think The Pink Fairies can be called from Wales. They were formed in and resided in Ladbrooke Grove, one of their incarnations may have had someone was originally from Wales, but by that recconing The Velvet Underground count as a 'Welsh band'

    . I loved them. They once supported SFA in dublin and made an appeal for somewhere to stay myself and my flat mate put them up. They promised us a session in Bangor if we ever went there and looked them up in the The Globe. They good guys and an awesome band.

    I was saddened to learn that Morty from Racing Cars died last year. They were never a big band - punk cruelly elbowed them out after years of graft on the circuit, and their tone hit proved a millstone - but he was a great live performer.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    Listen, John Cale is from down the road to me. Unless you know where Garnant is, and what it is now, that's worth mentioning several times.
     
  22. Hocus Eye.

    Hocus Eye. Snap, crop, scrap crap

    I remember Sassafras founded in 1970 I saw them at the Student Union in 73 or 4. I know nothing quibbling about them apart from what it says on Wikipedia.

    mwgdrwg A powerhouse of a human and cannot be silenced

    I fucking hate Welsh music as it's normally sub Oasis stylehshite usually. Then again, if you look deep enough (as with any culture) you find stuff like Gwenno and R.Seiliog
