GIG REVIEW – Rebecca Riots, Perfect Escape, Glove @ The North Rhyl

By |March 22nd, 2018|0 Comments


I love Glove and so should you… Promoter Steve Rastin felt compelled to get up on stage after their set to compare them to The Slits. And yeah he ain’t wrong, for this two piece from North Wales / Manchester possess that off-beat, very-skewed quality that is of The Slits legend.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 100 – with Kela Topan in Session

By |March 19th, 2018|0 Comments

North Wales band Kela Topan are just about to release their debut single Gun Boys ahead of their forthcoming epic EP. Frontman Dave Morait doesn’t let grass grow under his feet as he also throttles out for We Are Animal, Hippies vs Ghosts and Mechanical Owl. So it was great to pin him down to play a live, raw and stripped down session in the TudnoFM studio.

ALBUM REVIEW: Hopewell Ink – The Cure For Silence

By |March 19th, 2018|0 Comments

[review by nigel stone]

Whether one can honestly refer to all ten tracks on Hopewell Inks’ debut album as songs is debatable. Rather, “The Cure for Silence” is a collection of pieces created by blending the spoken words of Kathy Hopewell with the music and sounds of her partner, David Hopewell.

GIG REVIEW – Gintis, Saint Stevie @ Pie Records, Rhos-On-Sea

By |March 16th, 2018|0 Comments


Having seen Gintis play 30 times, you’d have thought that I have little to say about them anymore. Steve Sync and myself took the short trip to the excellent Pie Records in Rhos-On-Sea to witness a rare ‘home town’ gig. I say home town as (Mo Salah lookalike) Carl Gintis noted, it’s difficult to pinpoint their base anymore… I guess the excellent backdrop could lay claim with the slogan ‘Gintis – Straight Outta Gele.’
