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!

Crysbas - Draenog Marw (1978)

b/w -Y Nhw (Wil Bach)

Here's another Welsh sung 45 (1st release of 2) for you. The band were from North Wales Llanberis or Llanrwst (Depending on who's info you read)

and were

Bryn Fon (voc)
Ithel Jones (guitar)
Gwyndaf (John) Williams (guitar)
Alwyn (Phillip) Jones (bass)
Gwynfor Roberts (drums)

With extra vocals from Velvor Lewis & Gaenor Roberts on Y Nhw

All band members have their pubrock beginnings in either Y-Mellt (1967-76) or Mwg Drwg (1973-76) except Bryn Fon who joins the others in 1975 when Crysbas is formed.

Apparently this track (Dead Hedgehog in English) has the accolade of being the 1st song to be played live (Dei Tomos Hall Penrhyn, Bangor) on the BBC's new Welsh language radio service in 1977.

- a bit more info & 2nd 45 tomorrow -
