GIG REVIEW – Hammerfest (Friday) @ Haven, Pwllheli

By |March 16th, 2018|0 Comments

Only a day for me at this year’s annual local gathering of holiday camp based shenanigans, so I had to work really hard on condensing my drinking and socialising to a background of heavy music to a narrow window between midday and four in the morning.

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.’

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 99

No session for this week’s show after Kela Topan couldn’t make it.  This gave me the opportunity to feature the excellent compilation 4-CD box set celebrating 20 years of Boss Tuneage Records.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 98 – with Deckchair Protest in Session

By |March 5th, 2018|0 Comments

Llandudno’s Deckchair Protest have just released a new EP ‘Honey Drip’ so it was only polite of me to bring them in off the streets to perform a live session. Their second for the show having graced the carpet in November 2016. They’re such a great band as you’ll hear from the session and also from their recorded output.

GIG REVIEW – Amsterdam Red Light District, Emissaries Of Syn, Morvo @ The North, Rhyl

By |March 4th, 2018|0 Comments

Four gigs in four days, I’d happily do one every day, such has been the quality of this run… Liverpool, Conwy, Liverpool and now Rhyl (which is like the rough parts of Liverpool but with plywood for windows). We are back at The North for a Sunday night gig arranged for touring French band Amsterdam Red Light District who gave the few of us watching a lesson in Performance.
