Last November some of the biggest names from alternative Welsh music came together for a ‘Testimonial Concert’ at Neuadd Ogwen in Bethesda to celebrate the contribution of Alan Edwards (Maffia Mr Huws), Barry Cawley (Y Cyrff) , Johnny (Fflaps) and Bern (Elfyn Presli) to the Welsh music scene. All of whom are sadly no longer with us.More
Welsh Rebel Outpost
We came together to celebrate the music of those who are no longer with us, a list that sadly and ultimately grows longer as that evil beast called time passes by…
To remember Jonny Fflaps, Barry Cyrff, Al Maffia and Bern Elfyn Presli.
There are more (too many)… like the recent loss of Maeyc Hewitt (Ectogram) who is added to the list of Edi Filmstar (4Q), Les Morrison, Dave Griffiths (Joie de Vivre), O’Malley (Toilets), Ron Watt (Last Rights), Hugh Hughes (Y Brodyr), Chris Wright (Patchwork) and others who have contributed to our wonderful local music scene.More
I’ve spent the last couple of months rehearsing a little side project under the tag of Welsh Rebel Outpost with Rhys Mwyn and Cumi Pants (Alan Matthews to his mum).
Far from being an Anhrefn / 4Q not-so-supergroup, the idea was that of Rhys who wants to do a remembrance / benefit for those within the Welsh music scene who are no longer with us.
That list is sadly very long, and made even longer by the tragic loss of Ectogram drummer Maeyc Hewitt only last week.More
