I was trying to explain to 12 year old Dec the importance and significant part Record Shops played in my youth. A place to hang out on a Saturday afternoon and be cool (and failing miserably on that count!). He didn’t get it, something within me kinda hoped he’d grasp this occasion and would start a quest to amass music at all costs. There again, the thought of him attacking my own record collection would really piss me off; so it was a small mercy that he prefers to get his sound therapy from my iTunes account, 6music and Guitar Hero.

Y Llongau – Carreg Samson. 

Superbly filmed at Cob Records in Bangor.
Dyl Mei says, ‘Performed live with the help of Y Niwl for S4C programme Bandit, I can’t sing for shit, so Alun Tan was kind enough to step in and stop me looking like a prick. The song is about a massive rock in Borth y Gest, Not sure if you can get more pretentious that that.’
