    As one of the people with a “total inability to grasp the concept” (i.e. I couldn’t make the party, much as Rhys couldn’t make my 50th a couple of years back) I am a bit bemused by Rhys’s ability to write off a generation of ‘younger bands’ considering I haven’t seen him at a gig in over 20 years. I don’t go to that many myself, which is why I don’t feel in any position to make such sweeping statements – I have a suspicion that there’s a lot of rubbish out there, but am also aware that there may well be a vibrant exciting scene that I’m too old & out of touch to be a part of…

    Spot on Alan, this is a great time for Welsh music.
    It’s mostly ignored by the old guard who seem too busy bleating on about the good old days.

      almost all the younger bands about 2 years ago were all MOR. i know this as i book almost all of them. Sen Segur stand out as a band of kids who were doing something different. but in the last year theirs a few bands coming through. if you lisen to radio cymru you are going to think that things are shit especially in the day. they have a policy of playing MOR in the day. but that is showing a scene that even their. you can lisen to radio cymru for an hour without hearing an artist that gigs. you dont have to do that but the point is if you make MOR you get radio play. if you do anything different you get played at 11pm. this is a small part of the story. the best thing i can say is give DADIO RHYDD a lisen. new band from Bethesda follwing a music workshop and lecture by Rhys Mwyn. maybe something rubbed off. maybe we need Rhys back?:
