Just another site that's giving you hard to find music

These will be some Rarer tunes (Mod, powerpop, punk, ska, - if it's got a good sound I'll post it) ripped from my vinyl collection. The idea is that now you Know about them, You can seek them out!
If anyone is unhappy about any of these posts please contact me & I will take them off

  1. Thank you so much! I didn't even know this existed. Hearing three Welsh bands including two I'd never heard of plus a raw young "Radio Cymru"...it's a gas for a Welsh-a-phile like me. (I'm 33 and live in Portland, Oregon, USA. I'm Welsh on my mom's side, they immigrated after WWII, so I grew up on Rarebit and sea-infested fry-ups). My grandparents spoke the language but I could never wrap my tongue around it. I spent six months in Cardiff back in 1999 and think about moving there and the music is part of what draws me in. I guess it's the mix of exotic and familiar that I like about it, but sure there's some nationalism in me (it's usually the folks living "in exile" that get all nationalistic.} Anyway, thanks Bristolboy, you're doin' a saint's job and it's much appreciated.

  2. Welsh powerpop never sounded better than in this era - cheers Bruce!

  3. More gems!

    Diolch yn fawr.
