link2wales is an encyclopaedia of thousands of bands, venues, artists, labels from Wales and Liverpool. It covers mainly alternative acts from the 70’s to the present day and is by no way complete! You can read it like an encyclopaedia by clicking the Bands A-Z pages in the sidebar drop-down index or you can search and navigate the site in a number of ways…

Keyword Tag Index at the bottom of every page will show you what we have on a specific band, with a biog, pics, gig reviews, posters etc.

Try the Archive menu for a particular month and year

Gig Review index (archive gigs are being added all the time – still loads to do!), Release reviews, Guest Blogs, Gig Guide and Neil Crud’s own occasional Diary of a Madman blog.

It’s by no means anywhere near complete and your help is needed.
