Death Of Youth

The second of two nights of mayhem ripping across the North Wales coast’s sadly somewhat diminishing live music venue scene. Tonight I find myself in Rascals, Upper Bangor for what promises to be a bit of a treat for this old school punky goth chick.
Noise Annoys is proof that the heart of punk is still beating and seems to be happily enjoying a bit of a revival in spite of this extreme right wing political climate. I’m sure it’s been there all along, just below my radar, but it’s a welcome return for me as it’s a sound I’ve been missing.

What a great night..! It was the EP launch for Emissaries Of Syn, whose ‘Clean Slate’ is out now on Bandcamp with two of those tracks out very soon on vinyl with Spam Javelin on ‘The Split Seven Inch EP’.
Keeping in line with their evocative ethics, proceeds from the evening were raised and donated to Medical Aid For Palestinians – the total being £170.

I was arrested in Mexico once, it was a case of mistaken identity; they roughed me up and said, ‘Take a seat Mr Sanchez, the interview will now begin.’
‘You’ve got fuck all on me!’ I screamed, but they reckoned they knew who I was, and although my ‘solicitor’ told me not to speak, I was angry and shouted, ‘Where the fuck is my car!?’

“Beautiful place, not a lot happens” is how I often found myself describing my home to other travellers in the dark heart of Europe recently, but we locals do know that with a strong wellspring of local talent, plus the urge of others to stir some life into the cauldron with some more exotic ingredients, things do bubble up to the surface every now and again. And when they do it can all turn messy!
