Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 81 – with Cry in Session

By |October 23rd, 2017|0 Comments

Dylan Lloyd, Darren Dorling and Hitch formed Cry in 2015 and have just released their new EP ‘Brontide‘.
Recorded at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool it is full of ear-catching sweet melodies with a gilt edge. It was an obvious course of action to invite the Prestatyn trio back onto my TudnoFM show for another session… They didn’t let anyone down… Click below to hear the live session and the entire two hour show.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 80 – with Pocket Venus in Session

By |October 16th, 2017|0 Comments

Pocket Venus existed in the early 2000s and despite their beautiful songs they had a real destructive punk rock attitude when it came to live performances. Big headed, arrogant, abusive, they trashed stages and started fights wherever they went. The strength of their songs piqued the interest of Radio One and record labels, with their debut single Through Your Day twice getting daytime airplay thanks to Mark & Lard. They eventually imploded to the eve of a showcase in London, where all the major and indie labels had booked tickets to see the band.
Tonight’s show includes an archive session recorded for Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales Show in January 2001.

GIG REVIEW – Habits, Morffe, Maines @ Pie Records, Rhos-On-Sea

By |October 13th, 2017|0 Comments

What an exciting venture… Pie Records sits in the heart of the blue-rinse Tory heartland of Rhos-On-Sea. For how long the fascist Daily Mail readers will tolerate young people enjoying themselves watching beat combos on their patch remains to be seen. But while the sun shines, let’s make hay.

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 – Mammothfest (Sunday) @ The Arch, Brighton

By |October 8th, 2017|0 Comments


The last time I was in Brighton I was maybe 8 or 9 years old, on a camper van holiday of England with my family. I can recall playing a game of plastic bowls on the green at the front with my younger sister, our parents watching from a distance from the van, when there was a suddenly a boisterous gaggle of punks upon us asking for a game. They were just having a laugh, there was no malice there, and they rolled on soon enough after no doubt alarming my folks, but I can still picture the mohawks and dye, the black and the badges, the crazy gang. Who knows what early impression this made on me, and sent me down this slippery cider ski slope I have ended up on?!?
