The two were dressed in blue and white bird outfits that Meghan had borrowed from a Hollywood backdrop of the Gene Wilder film ‘Stir Crazy’. “Let me have a look at that invitation again!” she demanded. He handed her the expensive card with its emboldened heading. “ It’s not the RSPB ….it’s RSVP which means respondez s’il vous plait - you idiot-!”...

What inspired you to write the many tales of 'everyday' life in Merthyr that have entertained and amused many visitors to this site over the years? Philip: A) It was around 1967 and my first writing was like the Egyptian hieroglyphics at Tutankhamun’s tomb- unfortunately it was my parent’s new wallpaper in indelible marker pen-it didn’t make any sense to anyone, but I was aged 3 and I am now 54 but I am still not...

19 Jan 2023Debut Album 'Hollowing Out' released 31.03.23 Cardiff post-punk outfit 'Red Telephone' are set to release their highly anticipated debut album 'Hollowing Out' on the 31st March 2023. The only single taken from it 'Waiting For Your Good Days' is out on the 20th January. Hailing from Cardiff, Red Telephone’s richly layered alt-rock could have emanated from a club in Blade Runner's dystopian LA - combining angular guitars, Krautrock-inspired rhythms and New Wave-tinged synths with infectious pop sensibilities. Drawing on post punk and synth pop influences, the band has...
Read MoreThe angular, textured hybrid punk of Junior Bill is set to re-emerge into the spotlight this year. ‘ Boys From Jungle ’ is the first song released from their upcoming debut album ‘Youth Club!’. The track details the bleak fates of asylum seekers after their arrival in the UK. The song’s catchy new wave tunefulness makes for a juxtaposition to the incisive, cynical social comments that spill out as a collage of slogans and thrown away official observations. After airplay on BBC Radio Wales, Adam Walton said that Junior Bill have an “ability to cross pollinate cultures and...

Lead vocalist's Morgan and Danny - "The song plays on general morality and the less glamorous side of thrill seeking. An up tempo song for the deeper soul'd out there." The guys found relative success in their mid-teens under the name Cuba Cuba, following bands like Kids in Glasshouses and Funeral For a Friend during the Welsh power-pop zeitgeist of the early 2010′s. 15 years on, they can't quit making music together. Album number 2 has been...
