Problem is, rhyl needs an established venue, for that to happen it would need regular crowds of over 100-150. Most people i know want out of this stinking shithole. So apart from 17-18yr olds watching, dare i say, fucking atrocious bands before they fuck off to uni, there is no-one left to watch bands. As for barflys and other venues around the country, promoters dont promote anymore...its all pay to play, who you know, who's dick you got in your mouth, Wrexham for example there's a band call leaving isaacs shop (alright band, nout special, bit boring) theyve supported kaisers, kooks, the wombats,the automatic and others, NOT BECAUSE THEYRE GOOD, BUT BECAUSE THEYRE MANAGER IS THE PROMOTER FOR WREXHAM CENTRAL, ITS WHO YOU KNOW PEOPLE!!! Rastin and crud are at least keeping some type of scene going, but lets be fair, its been fucked for about two years now! my next comment is an undispuable fact.....SPEAKERS CORNER WAS A FUCKING JOKE!!!! I WANT TO DANCE AND DRINK WHEN I WATCH A BAND NOT SIT AND DRINK GREEN TEA EATING FUCKING FAIR TRADE CAKES. D.I.Y IS THE WAY TO GO, BUT IF YOUR BANDS NO GOOD, WHY BOTHER, (NOT AIMED AT ANYONE) DOESNT MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE TURN UP IF YOUR SHIT! 200 DISAPOINTED PUNTERS WANTING THEIR MONEY BACK, 'CAUSE YOUR BAND CANT WRITE FOR SHIT!!!
ONE MORE THING, WELSH RAP..........WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU TRYING TO KID? I LOVE HIP HOP, IF I WASNT ANONYMOUS IM SURE YOUD FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE (IM ANON SO BADASS DONT COMING LOOKING FOR ME...) BUT C,MON WELSH RAP, WHOS GONNA TAKE THAT SERIOUS..ANSWER NOONE!!!!! YEAH YEAH, I WAS IN COLWYN BAY ALL DAY, WHADYA SAY, EVERYONE ON THIS BOARD THINKS JUZ IS GAY, JUZ SAID BADASS IS GONNA STUN GUN ME COS IM A GINGER RAPPER FROM CYMRU....WORD!
POSTING YOUTUBE VIDEOS ON A WEBSITE WONT CHANGE THE FUCKING WORLD, NEITHER WILL A SONG.......
RALPH LATHAM IS MY SECRET SEXUAL FANTASY!!! HAHAHA
What a suprise....a topic on this board slowly turned into another immature dig at juz without hardly any substance and just playground name calling. As for your attitude towards speakers corner clearly you went there on the wrong night because i for one had deffinatly seen some decent bands there,got pissed and had a dance whilst it was open.
Hmm... I'm not a follower of Welsh rap, but wasn't Akira the Don Welsh? He wasn't too bad if memory serves. I've been in bands with Welsh rappers and we didn't have any problems. Joe was an excellent frontman.
I think GLC are the best of the bunch, imo. Cant get my head around Tystion (or however you spell it) or Pep le Pew (although they are really nice lads). But it's only for the same reasons as i wouldnt listen to French or German rap.
I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that i am Kendo Nagasaki.
Pep Le Pew were one of my pet hates, and there's been countless times I've switched on Welsh music programmes and switched them off quickly because some ludicrous twats think they're black and from the Welsh speaking quarter of New York. Having said that Genod Droog are the exception - check out their excellent new album on Slacyr Records. www.myspace.com/genoddroog
You're looking for a scapegoat, but there are no goats to blame...
unfortunately, since birth, i have had the awkward disposition of never ever being wrong....about anything, so when i say, 'speakers corner was shit, and welsh rap is irrelevant dross' then really you should take that as gospel, (gospel actually means, 'good news') now you have truly been educated....your welcome.

James, The 4Sticks are playing at 'Venue4events' with Carpet + thyrd eye on saturday 8th Nov, it's a new venture for Steve so it'd be good if you could drop by and bring as many of your mates as you can.
