For all the punks, the squatters and the queers – the delightfully titled ‘Apocalipstick Blues’ from Efa Supertramp is the perfect handbook to the real world. It’s full of warmth, sadness, hope, anger and humility… The folk-punk riot grrrl from Pwllheli is true to her word, has stuck to her guns and draws them to shoot the ruling elite right between the eyes.More

Eight years in and this was my first Bearded Theory festival, and what a great little event it is… So good, I’m at pains to tell you about it… Wanna keep it as our little secret… Not too big like some overblown corporate driven shite. Still humble enough to cater for you and not their pockets.More
Sorry it’s been a while since I last wrote but I’ve been inundated with new music, so you’ll understand my reasons. As compensation, I’ve sent you these new releases by some artists I know you’ll appreciate.
Remember Efa Supertramp from Pwllheli? Of course you do! Well, after she quit The Stilletoes, who burned bright for a couple of years, she headed across the world before eventually heading to Cardiff with Crav. Together they put together Afiach; a kind of label, distro, freedom fighting faction. They put on gigs, organise Food Not Bombs protests, helping those without etc.More
I love compilation albums – there’s not enough of them these days, so it’s good to see the Afiach Collective knocking this one out. I miss those Boobytrap compilations, I miss mix tapes off mates – more compilation albums please! More mix tapes please!
Having said that, we do get blessed with the likes of Northern Star Records, Pumpkin, Righteous Anger wazzing out the compilations, all of which are most welcome.
