Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 79 – with 20 Racine in Session

By |October 9th, 2017|0 Comments

What can I say? 20 Racine not only pulled a rabbit out of the hat, they produced a warren of superb sounds that infuse dance rhythms with proper rock and roll to produce hypnotic, mesmerising and simply superb music. They formed in Rhyl as Hobo and moved to London in 2001, where they’ve been a side project of side projects that DJ Sid does. Enjoy!

GIG REVIEW – Snowboy & The Latin Section, Jen Kearney @ Neuadd Ogwen, Bethesda

By |October 7th, 2017|0 Comments

[review by Nigel Stone]

As a cold, wet Saturday night fell on the streets of Bethesda, the crowd inside Neuadd Ogwen on the small town’s High Street were being drenched by the bluesy, soul soaked music of Boston based Jen Kearney, who was opening for Latin Jazz giants Snowboy and The Latin Section on their UK tour. Kearney was visiting Europe for the very first time, thanks to funding from the Arts Council.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 78 – with Joe Hovis in Session

By |October 2nd, 2017|0 Comments

Joe Hovis sprang onto the punk scene as part of The Dudley Arms contingent, both appearing live and watching live bands at the venue during it’s heyday. He did acoustic sets as well as playing with band Bankshot. Later he formed Braxton Hicks and released two EPs and played several gig in the band’s twelve month existence.
He also hosts the sporadic podcast ‘The Punk Rock Gospel.’
Having moved from Old Colwyn to Rochdale, it’s been hard to pin Joe down for a much wanted session, but we finally managed to get four songs recorded in the toilets at The Comrades Club in Conwy last Saturday soon after Joe’s live set there. What a great session.
Download his Demo EP here, and listen to his session and Neil Crud’s entire two hour show below.

GIG REVIEW – Boycott The Baptist, Indoctrinate, Emissaries Of Syn @ The North, Rhyl

By |September 27th, 2017|0 Comments

Boycott The Baptist
are the only band I’d ever sign a Grindcore pre-nup with and the only band who could assume my beverage and get away with it… The reason being, they are simply wonderful. They are out there on their own in terms of nonsensical material that makes perfect sense, delivered in brutal fashion. On a UK tour with Indoctrinate, they are a two-man mission to put you in a position of compromise with their sarcasm, wit and ability to punch your lights out with their (usually) less than a minute blasts. That sixty seconds or so usually contains 45 seconds of feedback then a fifteen second Panzer attack of the senses… Simply blissful.

Tom Goodall returns to my TudnoFM show for the second time in session. Unlike his previous visit, the former Psycho Sexual Sex Terrestrials drummer has gone semi-electric, and delivers this superb folk-choke session. After you’ve listened to it (and the entire show) check out his page here.
