GIG REVIEW – The Webb, Teeth Crack, David Watson @ The North, Rhyl

By |February 1st, 2018|0 Comments

When you’re lying on your deathbed, reflecting on your life’s journey there’ll be one thing definitely NOT say; ‘I wish I had spent more time on Facebook.’ Not that – ‘I wish I had gone to more gigs in Rhyl on a cold Thursday night in January,’ would be muttered either. I guess my point is, there were more people in the bands than punters, and had it not been for Lorraine, Kath and myself… well, you get the picture.

GIG REVIEW – White Ether, Lolfa Binc, Teeth Crack @ The North, Rhyl

I was here purely for enjoyment’s sake, having seen these acts on numerous occasions, and still in the recovery position after a weekend of overseas debauchery, reviewing was far from my mind. So for a line up I’ve experienced before to compel me to write about must have been a good night… (Or a shit one, but I tend not to write about them).

Well, what are you going to do on a Thursday evening when presented with a choice between Celebrity Masterchef on TV or a trip through to North Wales equivalent to Sin City that is Rhyl. As I walk through the door like a gun slinging outlaw stepping into a western saloon, half expecting a chair to come flying at me, I’m surprised to find that there’s a friendly welcome and an opening at the bar where I choose a pint of Tuborg for a small sum of two quid.. it’s a good start.

Neil Crud on TudnoFM – Show 63 – with Teeth Crack / Skinflick in Session

By |June 12th, 2017|0 Comments

Sometimes the planets align and sometimes they smash into each other and sometimes both! This is what happened when Bangor’s Skinflick teamed up with Rhyl’s Teeth Crack to bring you last month’s ‘Wetworks Of Heresy EP’.
Eager to pollute the airwaves I had already invited Skinflick to perform a session on my show, and it was suggested that they collaborated live in the studio. Their initial idea was to simply perform the EP live… ‘Boring’ I said. A session should, yes, promote a new release, but also give the listener something else. The result was incredible… Particularly the Christine Aguilera cover!

“While sinking a few pints on a quiet Sunday evening, the blue skies over Prestatyn were split by a raucous, discordant tide of glorious punk rock. Following the rapid guitar, vocal angst and screaming drums, I found myself, drink in hand, nodding ferociously to the sounds of Spam Javelin and Boycott The Baptist. A large group of baying punters packed the pub’s makeshift barn, a perfect venue to be gleefully terrorised by this incessant and glorious sound. I was happy to be among them.”
