Bethan Elfyn: Funeral For A Friend and Stone Roses

Tagged with:

This Saturday at 6pm, Bethan Elfyn's Radio Wales show has special guests Matt and Darran from Funeral For A Friend revealing their Personal Playlist. My Welsh Music Atlas entry for the show visits Newport again, this time talking about the 1995 Stone Roses gig that ended in a riot.

The FFAF chaps play six of their favourite tracks and as a little teaser, having heard the choices, I doubt very much that Radio Wales has ever played American hardcore punk rock before.

If you've never heard the show before, the Personal Playlists are a great insight into the musical world of Bethan's guests and throw up choices that would not otherwise appear on air.

Two weeks ago, Beth was joined by Aled Phillips of Kids In Glass Houses. His Personal Playlist was:

  • Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator
  • Van Halen - Why Can't This Be Love?
  • The Police - Walking On The Moon
  • Ike and Tina Turner - Nutbush City Limits
  • The Kinks - All The Day And All Of The Night
  • Otis Redding - Mr Pitiful
  • Prince - Let's Go Crazy

Last week's show featured new young Turks Johnnie and Aron from The Last Republic come in, and their Personal Playlist was:

  • The Levellers - One Way
  • Radiohead - High And Dry
  • Hope Of The States - Enemies/Friends

We'll be putting a list of Matt and Darran's choices on the blog next week. Don't forget, if you miss the show on air, you can listen again with the BBC iPlayer.
