Where were you when Russell Brand invented fire? Cometh the second day, Cometh the half hour (sets by each band).
It had been a long day, early morning barefoot paddling in Red Wharf Bay, followed by some fraternising with cows in Amlwch. My head was like a shining advertisement for After-Sun Lotion…More
Words cannot describe my love for Wobbly Hearts (pic below) and, like Gintis they are forever getting their name in the small print on the poster when they should really be in the hearts and minds of the entire population. I guess it’s down to themselves really, personal circumstances, uni, kids, work… and yet if they had proper representation they have the songs and charm to be up there with all those tossers picking up Brit Awards.More

Debut single by North Wales’ Wobbly Hearts – released on link2wales records.
I love this song so much…!!!!! The video was shot live at The Skerries in Bangor at the end of March 2013 – and is mainly just one take with a few overdubs (love the bog scene!!).
There are only a few copies of the single left… [SOLD OUT]

I love these kind of events – a hat full of bands, each playing half an hour, therefore not outstaying their welcome, indoors, friendly atmosphere and most importantly – on my doorstep. An hour before soundcheck I was at home making a stir-fry, whereas usually when doing a gig I’d be stuck behind some arse on a motorway or hanging around waiting for the stage doors to be unlocked or the soundman to turn up. Not here… With Kyle Lee in charge of logistics, everything runs like clockwork.
We’ve had a busy coupla weeks at link2wales HQ – I say HQ and ‘we’ like this is some sort of big organisation, but it’s not at all really – it’s mainly myself and err… well, myself. Although MWJ, Dan Read and Rhys Mwyn do send in regular contributions, my Dad keeps the tech side ticking over, and of course the website gets a lot of promotion thanks to those who retweet on Twitter and share on Facebook, and also nice plugs from Adam Walton on BBC Radio Wales and from John Robb on Louder Than War webzine.
The fortnight has been full of highlights, lots of gigs reviews, new videos uploaded by Bright Young People and Braxton Hicks, great blog by Dan Read, controversial one by Rhys Mwyn and I’ve been called a cock twice!
