Just another site that's giving you hard to find music
A Place To Find Some Rarer Tunes (Mod, PowerPop, Punk, Ska) ripped from my vinyl collection. If it sounds good I'll post it. The idea being 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.

2 Psych-lite tunes (that would have easily fit on the recently updated "Another Splash Of Colour" Compilation) from this Bethesda based band.
Les "Paul" Morrison (Voc, Bass) RIP (ex Cut The Mustard & later in Mwg)
Alan Williams (Guitar)
Mik-E Punk [Sion Jones] (Guitar)
Hefin Huws (Drum, Voc) (later of Maffia Mr Huws, Anhrefn, Llwybr Cyhoeddus)
Quapa (Backing Voc)
Tracy Kennedy (Backing Voc)
The 45 was recorded at Blue Cave Studio in Ystalyfera, Swansea Valleys & released on Cottage Records Both being run by Richard ‘Moz’ Morris’ (Vortex/Trobwll).
The other Recorded output from this time was a Radio Session for John Peel [Recorded 27/04/83, Aired 05/05/83] - The 4 tracks were:
One More Night / Beautiful Eyes / Baby / Round And Round
& a 2nd 45 Not a Sad Song/One More Night - Offspring OP001 (1984)
Morrisons’ greatest contribution was as a Producer and his [8 Track] Studio, Stiwdio Les, on Bethesda High Street, was an important landmark in the Welsh Language Scene throughout the ’90s. He recorded an array of bands there as well as producing many others at the Sain Studios at Llandwrog and Recordiau Fflach in Cardigan.
Morrison went on to spend many years working for the Super Furry Animals as a guitar and sound technician and toured extensively with them throughout Europe, America, Australia and Japan.
On the day of his death (29-04-2011) Gruff Rhys wrote on his blog:
“He was a tireless friend and mentor to countless musicians and producers not only in Bethesda and Wales, but with his exemplary social skills and unflinching spirit of adventure, he befriended and touched people’s hearts the world over.”
