Blog Johnny R – Ellis, The Rural Punk

I can’t even remember Ellis’ surname, it might have been Roberts. He lived in Engedi, on the road to Rhosneigr, Anglesey and he was the first ‘rural punk’ I knew. My teen stomping ground was wider than most around our village as two of my mates passed their test early and had cars, we could go to Ty Croes and venture into the teen Shangri-La of Rhosneigr which had a better youth club than my village Gwalchmai, dances, loads of pubs, an ‘offy’ and fit ‘dames’.

Musical collages featuring a snapshot of youth culture recorded for the main in little studios around North Wales and beyond and my own back-room Heath Robinson set up in the tiny village of Gwalchmai, of tape decks, analogue keyboards, samplers from Argos and record decks mastered on 4 track cassette decks.
