a weekend in the city
I'm getting the ghostface killa album for xmas from my sister. Can't wait:)
I had a busy weekend - after the show last week with the ace Associated Minds crew performing live, I headed to see Kentucky AFC and Y Ffyrc play two storming sets. Y Ffyrc are made up of ex members of CVatatonia, and Mark Roberts the singer has some amazing lyrics and loads of melodies. Friday night got to see Threatmantics, who appear on the ace This Town Ain't Big Enough for the 22 Of Us compilation of Cardiff based bands, with los Campesinos and the Loves amongst others. Threatmatnics are brilliant - they play violin and have o bass player, and they covered Mclusky and White Stripes too - a winner! beth Elfyn was djing a fine selection of records too - ghostbusters being a highlight....
Saturday night was my Radio Cymru show xmas party, then off to see Radio Luxembourg at Clwb Ifor - what a band. they played on Marc Riley's show on 6music recently too and sounded ace - i hope things go well for them in the new year. And to finish off on Satruday night - i got to see the legendary Dr Octagon! Live! In Cardiff! What a treat. He was on top form, his first Welsh date ever, Kutmasta Kurt was there too, and he did Blue Flowers, some Ultramagnetic MC's classics and a few new tunes.
