Maffia Mr Huws and Guests
This recent Bank Holiday saw the return of Bethesda’s annual celebration of live music, “Pesda Roc” at Neuadd Ogwen.
The weekend kicked off on Saturday night, with intimate sets from Lastigband, Argrph, Phalcons, and DJ Delweddau Hen Dduwiau in the bar; but there was a definite buzz surrounding Sunday’s upcoming climax of the two day festival; local legends Maffia Mr Huws were back.

What has “Flint Football Club” and the “San Siro Stadium” got in common?
‘Well, they both host football teams but not much else I guess’, quips Geoff Davies legendary drummer of Emily who drives me past Flint Castle with “Stations Of The Crass” on his car stereo. We make our way to the rather unglamorous surrounds of the Flint football ground car park for the Urdd inspired celebration of Welsh qualification for their first major event football event since 1958. (Before man had landed on the moon) gulp.

Y Ffug / Fleur De Lys @ Hen Cob, Bangor

First of all, apologies to Y Bandana – but whoever got the graveyard shift I was destined to miss. I did see them about 4 years ago and they were very good, and I’ll no doubt catch them live over the festival season.
Monday night in Bangor. Wow! That’s brave, when you consider a Friday night in Bangor is pretty shit.
Bucking the trend however is Hen Cob / Old Cob which, tonight at least was bustling.

EP Review – Y FFUG – Cofiwch Dryweryn (RASP CD58J)

Y Ffug

(review gan rhys mwyn)

Y Ffug are ‘that’ band that messed about with the Tryweryn image. For that fact alone they are one of the most interesting bands to emerge on the Welsh scene recently. Secondly – they look good and the singer wears a Joy Division t-Shirt and has just shaved off all his hair. A band with shite haircuts can never be a good band (unless you are Mark E Smith).The inner sleeve to this EP is pure Pennie Smith. Love it.
