BLOG RHYS MWYN: Fanzines

By |July 22nd, 2015|0 Comments

Diffiniad ‘fanzine’ yw cylchgrawn wedi ei sgwennu gan ddilynwyr brwd, sef y ‘fan’ ac ychwanegir y gair  ‘zine’ o’r gair magazine. Yn ystod 1976 ymddangosodd y fanzines Pync cyntaf, a rhain oedd, mewn amser, i sbarduno ac ysbrydoli cyhoeddi cylchgronau tanddaearol tebyg yn y Gymraeg ar ddechrau’r 1980au. Daw’r disgrifiad ‘tanddaearol’ yn y cyd-destyn Cymraeg oherwydd natur ac ysbryd amgen y cylchgronau yma a hefyd oherwydd eu safbwynt gwrth-sefydliadol.

Use him, abuse him, but most importantly listen in…

BLOG RHYS MWYN: Pop Needs To Get Political Again (Cian in The Guardian)

By |June 26th, 2015|1 Comment

Fe soniais yn fy ngholofn bythefnos yn ol (10 Mehefin) wrth adolygu Gwyl Merthyr Rising 2015, fod grwp newydd Cian Ciaran o’r Super Furrys, a’i gariad Estelle Ios, sef y Zefur Wolves, wedi adfer fy ffydd mewn cerddoriaeth. Cymaint felly bu i mi fynd i weld y grwp yn canu am yr eilwaith mewn llai nac wythnos.

Datblygu @ Gwyl CAM, Millennium Centre, Cardiff

This gig, let’s call it a ‘Cultural Event’ (far better description) could have taken place somewhere like Düsseldorf or Brussels and would have made perfect sense. An event celebrating experimental / electronic music.
