Eberg is an Icelandic God...
Didn't blog over the weekend, didn't get a chance i'm afraid. To be fair, I was far too glamorous to blog on Saturday cos I was at the Welsh Baftas in Cardiff, playing some tunes while the tuxedo'd folk ate lamb. Big up Paul from legendary Welsh band Y Cyrff and now Y Ffyrc for winning best soundtrack, and Emyr from Ankst, also a wicked label of course, for winning in the best film category. Y Lleill/The Others is a bilingual film about the trials and tribulations of a young band, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Sunday night I got to finally see OneMusic favourites Hush the Many playing a proper live gig. Soft, chilled and incredibly nice on the ear, they're gigging loads these days. Check www.hushthemany.com for them gigs.
Soft Hearted Scientists make space-age bubble-folk songs, and played a great set, but the night belonged to Richard James. His folk songs are pure and simple, sometimes going off on near-prog country wig outs, and always melodic, beautiful and very special. His Seven Sleepers Den LP is out next week.
Can't believe Rob da Bank's got more friends on myspace on me, the cheeky blighter. I'm going to go adding them friends now, and beat that pesky da Bank. Not that its a competition or anything of course. Maybe Rob can call his son 'Add' ?
