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

Pal a'r gwylliad cochion - Gwrthryfela (198?)

b/w - Lwni bin

Here's another welsh language record for you

It's a private press with no date attached & I couldn't find any info on it - so we're flying blind today!!

The Band name seems to translate to "Puffin & the red bandits" so a perusal of the internet has led me to believe they are probably from mid Wales (purely speculative)

Anyway the A side is a catchy little number (gwrthryfela = rebel) & the flip (Lwni bin = loony bin?) reminds me of early "kursaal flyers"

sounds & scans below



  1. Dunno this one. For dating, is there anything useful in the matrix? EJSP/LYN/SRT/whatever number? It LOOKS very 1980-ish!

  2. matrix reads PST 004 A - 1U - 1 - 1 - 1 (B on b side) means nothing to me

  3. How many more obscure Welsh gems like these are there? Very cool . . .
