Last Night on Radio 1
Had a busy weekend - went to a night called Peppermint Patti in Cardiff on Firday night where Persil from Amsterdam, Retro Spankees and Das Wanderlust all played and sounded grand. Das Wanderlust are currently without a drummer so its tricky for them - they were playing with a minidisc drummer!
On Saturday I was up in Llandudno for the Radio Cymru Roc n Pop Awards, where the great and the good of thew Welsh language music scene gathered. Big winners were Radio Luxembourg, Euros Childs and Genod Droog, and a lot of messy fun was had.
Back down to Cardiff for the Daedelus gig last night, with superb support from Mr Ronz and Diwygiad, and then I was covering Rob da Bank last night from midnight, taking over the airwaves and maaged to play some happy hardcore (thanks to producer Louise!), lovely folk from Andrew Hockey, Fionn Regan, bouncy tunes from Joakim, the Pancakes, Euros Childs, CSS, Pepe Deluxe and loads more. We had DAEDELUS playing live, and he did an amzing set. His live experience is so unique and different to other electronic music producers out there - listen again if you missed it. Guto from Super Furry Animlas dropped by with a few tracks from his forthcoming dub compilation on Trojan, and Gruff SFA read the book at bedtime. Wicked fun, and da Bank will be back where he belongs next Sunday night!
