Anhrefn & Paraletics – Colwyn Bay

We watched a Welsh punk band called Yr Anhrefn and a Bangor band called The Paraletics play an open air show on the Rydal School playing fields at Brackley Avenue in Colwyn Bay. The school was a private one and we were no strangers to the place having many a time attempted to relieve our testosterone teenage bodies with a peek into the girls shower rooms.
On Anhrefn, Wayne said, ‘I think we were thrilled to actually find a punk band in North Wales, and the fact that the month we saw them, Peel had them in session. They were the band around North Wales who made an impact, especially the Welsh speaking areas. I loved going to see them, huge following, these days they’d be bigger I guess. I’m not sure what they made of us!’
