The cheque was for £9.99, which is for all airplay of Anhrefn songs for the first 3 months of 2013.
The other difficulty here as I found with the interview with Clancy Pegg for her forthcoming book see previous blog is that things get misinterpreted. I know Crud wants to stir up the shit but this piece was an attempt to look at how people deal with bands such as Traddodiad Ofnus or Llwybr Llaethog today, are they recognised, appreciated, discussed or even once in a while invited? I thought these were valid enough points. Not the money, but the almost total lack of any awareness of Welsh language pop music and cultural history – Traddodiad Ofnus being a case in point. (The Datblygu retrospectives no longer count – too easy !)
But on the £9.99 point :
We did produce 3 studio albums amounting to a total of at least (at least) 35 songs, more if you count compilation tracks etc and only one song in all that repertoire ever get’s any airplay – ‘Rhedeg i Paris’
