Anhrefn Records – Recordiau Anhrefn
Label set up in 1983 by bassist Rhys Mwyn initially as an outlet for his Bangor based band Anhrefn. Recordiau Anhrefn was lucky enough to make a significant breakthrough on its second release with John Peel playing tracks off the compilation Cam o’r Twyllwch. The compilation album ode a lot to the Crass Records philosophy of a DIY ethic; sheet of paper for a sleeve and non-profit selling price.

Rhys concentrated on releasing Welsh language leftfield-alternative acts such as Fflaps, Datblygu, Llwybr Llaethog, Cyrff, who, apart from the latter, had very little chance of receiving exposure from a conservative Welsh media.

Rhys resurrected the label in 2009 and began releasing English acts such as Beastellabeast, with the same challenging policy.
