Yr Albym

Dyma albym Docfeistr - stori y cymeriad garw o'r mor - sydd wedi ei blethu gyda 34 trac unigryw, yn cynnwys cyfraniadau ecsgliwsif gan nifer helaeth o fandiau ac artistiaid Cymru, yn cynnwys Gruff Rhys, Bryn Fon, Yr Ods, Mr Phormula, Dyl Mei, MC Mabon a Mr Huw - gyda hefyd gyfraniadau gan The Stilletoes, MC Saizmundo, Y Thongs, Y Bandana, Brochfael Barfog a Dr Tray i enwi ond rhai.

Cynhyrchwyd Docfeistr gan Gruff Meredith (MC Mabon) Deian Ap Rhisiart (MC Saizmundo) a Frank Naughton (U~ziq / Rocket Gold Star) yn stiwdio 'Ty Drwg' Caerdydd dros gyfnod o chwe mlynedd rhwng 2003 a diwedd 2009. Recordiwyd y traciau mewn lleoliadau gwahanol yng Nghymru a Lloegr gyda cyfraniadau gan dros hanner cant o unigolion , yn cynnwys cyfraniad gwych gan yr actor Rhodri Evan o Grymych (Scrum 4, Cowbois Ac Injans, Con Passionate) sydd yn adrodd y stori a'r naratif. Tyfodd yr albym yn fwystfil ynddo'i hyn wrth i fwy a mwy o ganeuon a phosibiliadau newydd dasgu o gwmpas y lle. Ar ol chwe mlynedd roedd rhaid dod a'r prosiect i ben yn 2009 cyn iddo sbinio allan o reolaeth a dinistrio pawb a phopeth o'i gwmpas megis Large Hadron Collider dieflig.

Be ydi'r Docfeistr?

Does neb yn rhy siwr o ble ddaeth y Docfeistr na pham nag i be y mae yn bodoli. Y mor ansefydlog yw ei gynefin yn ol y son. Ond bob hyn a hyn mae'n cael ei drechu gan yr ysfa a'r angen i deithio tua'r lan er mwyn concro'r tir mawr llonydd sefydlog a chreu dinistr di angen. Ond mae pob taith i'r lan yn codi cwestiynau newydd - i'r docfeistr ei hun yn ogystal ag i bobl y tir mawr - cwestiynau am fodolaeth, cwestiynau am fater, cwestiynau y gall dod i wybod yr atebion iddynt eich achub neu eich difa ...

Various Artists - Docfeistr

ANKST 127

CD / DL

Release date - 01/12/2009

Can it have finally have made it's way onto dry land ? The facts are clear - Yes!

The DOCFEISTR has arrived and is among us. Gruff Meredith and Deian ap Rhisiart's long gestating project which tells the story of the mysterious water borne Docfeistr character is about to crash land in your local record shop.

Gruff Meredith says "Creating and producing the Docfeistr album has been a long and twisting escapade, battered by cross winds and freak weather. But at last its a substantial joy for all involved to be able to report the release of Docfeistr on the Ankstmusik label and to reassure that it will be worth the precious pounds that you are possibly considering spending on it."

Deian ap Rhisiart adds "the Docfeistr has been a sinister presence in my life for six years and it is time to break free of his influence. It is a project that grown to encompass the contributions of many, many people over the years and without this input the project would not exist - and we thank them for their willing participation."

The album will be in the shops and on line at www.ankst.net from December 1st - further info: emyr@ankst.co.uk

 

The Album

This is Docfeistr, the album - the story of a troublesome character from the sea - which has been woven with 34 unique tracks by Welsh language artists and bands: Gruff Rhys, Bryn Fon, Yr Ods, Mr Phormula, Dyl Mei, MC Mabon and Mr Huw to name but a few... The Stilletoes, MC Saizmundo, Y Thongs, Y Bandana, Brochfael Barfog and Dr Tray being other examples of the unique contributions to the album.

Docfeistr (roughly translated as harbour master or master of the dock) was produced by Gruff Meredith (MC Mabon) - Deian ap Rhisiart (MC Saizmundo) and Frank Naughton (U~ziq / Rocket Gold Star) at Ty Drwg Studios, Cardiff, Wales over a period of six years between 2003 and late 2009. The tracks were recorded in various locations in Wales and England and include contributions from over fifty individuals, with a brilliant contribution by actor Rhodri Evan (Scrum 4, Cowbois Ac Injans, Con Passionate) providing the narrative that runs through the album in his own special way.

The album itself grew into a bit of a monster as more and more new songs arrived and the album grew bigger and took on new nuances. After six years from its initial conception the project had to be brought to an end before it spiralled out of control and destroyed everyone and everything in its path like a demented Large Hadron Collider.

 

What is Docfeistr ?

No one is quite sure where the Docfeistr came from or why he exists. The great unstable and fickle sea is said to be his main haunt but every now and then he is driven by the need to travel to the mainland so that he can conquer the still and static land and carry out random and unnecessary destruction. But every journey inland raises new questions for the people of the mainland and to the Docfeistr himself. Questions about existence and matter itself. Questions that either save or destroy those who find the answers.

 

Produced by Gruffydd Meredith, Deian Ap Rhisiart and Frank Naughton.

KLAUS KINSKI - HAPPINESS HAPPINESS / CAESAR

ANKST 126

Limited 7" double A side & DL

rel: Nov 2nd 2009 - Shellshock Distribution / SRD


“They make the most unhinged and primal racket that I have ever heard. It’s mercurial and surreal: the Birthday Party fronted by a psychotic Spike Milligan. If you like your music unstable, bust into a thousand unexpected shapes and ultimately thrilling, this band are for you.” - Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales)

“Jumping along to the downstairs department in Clwb, Klaus Kinski decorated the stage with a banner of a penis and smashed the hell out of their instruments, vigorously confusing some members of the crowd. Fully wailing, the showman (donning a brown paper bag mask) lunged/ crawled/ thrust his way along the floor whilst clenching the microphone close. The power of the penis prevailed as the crowd warmed to its mighty supremacy.” - God is in the TV



Klaus Kinski formed in the graveyard of a freshly burnt church in Llanfairfechan by old friends Jake McKenna and Edwin Stevens in 2005, originally formed to channel their love of Bauhaus, Satanism and Herzog films onto a four track tape recorder in Edwin’s room, the band has now become a five piece guilt ridden no-wave post-punk flamingo with massive delusions of grandeur. Singer James Starkey (of James Starkey fame) joined in 2006 for the debut EP ‘BATS!’, with which the band did very little. In 2007 they drunkenly approached Alan Holmes of Ectogram at a gig to record a split CD with them. Reluctantly, Alan agreed and Ed, James and Jake, (being well chuffed at the prospect of sharing a disc with one of their favourite Welsh bands ever) got their collective ‘shit together’. Dylan “Deebo” Hughes joined the band as guitarist / keyboardist. September 2008 saw Klaus Kinski perform their first gig playing actual songs (not just noise) at Clwb Ifor Bach on the BBC introducing stage for sexy radio DJ Adam Walton. Here they performed with now full time member Domic Tanner on guitar and it was ace. Since then the band have been playing a stupid amount of gigs around the UK and have recorded about 500 albums worth of new material. Their most recent record ‘Skelington Horse’ will be released in February 2010 by ANKSTMUSIK. It's going to be ace.

Two brand new ANKSTMUSIK releases May 2009 - Annalogue LP and The Stilletoes CD!!

THE STILLETOES - ADHDreams

MAY 25TH 2009

ANKST 125

CD Digipak / Download

ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce the imminent release of A.D.H.Dreams the debut album from teenage signings The Stilletoes. The album recorded live at Bryn Derwen Studios, Bethesda, North Wales by ex-Gorky’s guitarist John Lawrence features fourteen super sharp pop-punk tunes which amply display why this band are recognised as THE best new band to come out of the Welsh scene in recent years.

Ridiculously young, talented and outspoken, the band led by charismatic motor mouth Efa, with her fourteen year old brother Iago on drums and friend James on bass, more than deliver on the promise shown by their Welsh language debut 7’’ Sownd / Y Gwir ( on pink vinyl!) and their contribution to the compilation album Radio Crymi Playlist Vol 2 (The anthemic ‘One Last Dream’ - "You and me got nothing to lose, we’re last in line no matter what they do"), both released in 2008. Over the past year the band have played super exciting gigs in every shit hole in Wales happy slapping audiences numbed by the usual lifeless commercial indie music on offer with an unique onslaught of tunes, attitude and sheer ‘balls out’ punk rock energy.

This band mean it maaan! A.D.H.Dreams gives us songs welcoming the recession (Recession This); pin sharp exposes of over the hill indie types (Smoke’n’Snort); personal manifestos (I Need To Roam) ; tales of alarming personal behaviour (Cuntrol); all out assaults on the racist nature of Welsh language culture (Nazis Cymraeg); directionless modern youth (Teimla Y Cyffro) drug apathy (Methadone Church) and chemically neutered teenage rebellion (Diagnonsense) - This is music that demands that the ‘seen it all’ modern rock audience once again focuses and pays attention to what a few chords and tons of attitude and talent can actually achieve. There’s no pussyfooting around - this album snarls out of the gate at full speed and doesn’t let up for it’s 40 minute length. It reminds us what young and angry is supposed to sound like. It might be too late for rocknroll to resuscitate itself and become a vital force again but as long as bands like The Stilletoes are out there sticking out faces in it we can keep believing, along with the band, in rock’s one last dream...

The itunes version includes bonus track ‘Isolate Figure’.

Braint gan ANKSTMUSIK yw cyhoeddi fod ADHDreams, albym cynta’r grwp ifanc The Stilletoes, ar fin ymddangos. Recordiwyd yr albym undegpedwar trac yn fyw yn stiwdio Bryn Derwen, Bethesda dan oruchwyliaeth John Lawrence ( gitarydd gynt gyda’r Gorkies). Mae’r albym yn atgyfnerthu’r gred mai’r Stilletoes yw Y grwp newydd mwya cyffrous i ddod allan o’r sin yn Nghymru ers tro hir iawn. Mae’r Stilletoes yn byrlymu gyda talent, egni a agwedd ac yn fand sy’n medru dweud mwy mewn un can na ma’ rhan fwya o grwpie yn llwyddo i ddeud mewn gyrfa’ cyfa. Dyma fand sy’ wir yn cynnig rhywbeth gwahanol a newydd, efo llais a caneuon y prif leisydd Efa Thomas yn cynnig cip unigryw, dadleuol a ffres i fewn i fywyd bobl ifanc yn eu harddega’ yma yn Nghymru’r unfed ganrif ar ugain. Ma’r grwp i gyd dal yn eu harddega (efo Iago y drymiwr, a brawd Efa, ddim ond newydd gyrraedd 14) ac yn grwp sy’n datblygu ar garlam.

Mae ADHDreams yn gam ymlaen pendant o’r sengl Y Gwir / Sownd a’r tracie One Last Dream (‘You and me got nothing to lose, we’re last in line no matter what they do’) a Ti’m Yn Clywed oddiar Radio Crymi Playlist a rhyddhawyd nol yn 2008.

Ma’r albym yn cynnwys caneuon am y dirwasgiad (Recession This), ‘past it’ indie types (Smoke ‘n’ Snort), datganiada’ personol (I Need to Roam), ymddygiad personol amheus (Cuntrol), caneuon syn ymosod ar yr hiliaeth sy’n bodoli oddi fewn i’r byd Cymraeg (Nazis Cymraeg), y ffordd ma’r ifanc yn cael eu dofi drwy ddefnydd o gyffuriau ‘legal’ a’r system seicatryddol (Diagnonsense), apathi y byd cyffuriau (Methadone Church).

Wrth wrando ar y albym mae hi’n gwbl glir fod na ddim byd ffals am eiriau a perfformiad y grwp yma – They mean it maaaan ! Mae’r albym yn atgoffa ni fod canu roc yn rhywbeth sy’n hollol glwm i deimlada’ a dyheuiada y to ifanc ac ar ADHDreams da ni hefyd yn medru clywed faint mor gyffrous ydi cerddoriaeth y Stilletoes efo cynhyrchu John Lawrence yn llwyddo i ddal egni a ‘in-yer-face-ness’ swn ‘byw’ y band.

Mae fersiwn itunes o’r albym yn cynnwys trac ychwanegol ‘Isolate Figure’.

ANNALOGUE debut album out on vinyl
Annalogue LP cover
'Brocken Spectre' out now on Ankst's reactivated vinyl imprint Atol Records

format - 12" vinyl L.P. / D.L.

release date - May 1st 2009

Welcome to Annalogue's debut commercial release Brocken Spectre - a defiant 'one-off' that offers the chance to enter the world of an unique musical talent... so sit back and stay untuned... and prime your ears for twelve unique songs - running at 46 minutes spread over two sides of inky black vinyl – with plenty of warped and twinkling guitars, escaping organs, empty radiators, dry biros, melancholy clarinets, smiling harmonicas and rounded basses. Annalogue's female voice never fails to snag the ear and drag the listener onto the rocks of some of the strangest music currently available... all composed, played, recorded and produced by one feral entity from calming welsh shores.

Annalogue is a parasol that covers the solo efforts made by Ann Matthews outside her group efforts as guitarist / singer with the noise trio Fflaps ('87 - '92) and the post-tonal psychonauts Ectogram ('94 onwards). Ann has spent the majority of her extended-misspent-youth playing music - with theatre and dance companies and avant-garde ensembles such as Faust as well as the more untraditional pop groups.

Annalogue remarks that Brocken Spectre was made "for the sheer joy of picking up any instrument, pressing record on anything that records and seeing what happened."

It's safe to say that nothing in the universe of normal pop compares to the natural song writing style of Ann's work and the embroidered multi-layered yet simple arrangements that she weaves around her poetic songs. From the super tough guitar playing on 'Apron!' to 'Corn Curl's sad, slow flickering tick tock of two rocks being gently tapped to the accompanying Biro that clicks away quietly to itself. The mostly drum-less yet complex music on the album belies the primitive recording technology used to capture these sometimes otherworldly sounding emanations. The album has a hermetically sealed feel that defies easy categorization and fixing it as a work from 2009 yields no easy answers to it's mysterious qualities which perfectly fit the warm reproductive sound of it's vinyl only existence. You can experience the almost pop music of 'Tony Wilson’ alongside the strange shuffle of 'Eve's Drop' as well as sampling the comforting blanket of sound that is 'Know Your Vessels' and 'Cappo Incognito'.

SAUNDERS LEWIS vs ANDY WARHOL (A Ffilm Found on the Stockroom Floor) (2008) 80mins

Eighteen Short Films About Late 20th Century Welsh Language Rock Music

Between 1989 and 1998 Emyr Glyn Williams ran Welsh indie label ANKST RECORDS. In that time he also created a wide ranging visual record of all the great bands he worked with on formats ranging from Super 8 / 16mm and 35mm to VHSC, Digibeta and all formats in between.

From all these sources he has pulled together the musical memoir film that is 'Saunders Lewis vs Andy Warhol'.

Emyr calls 'Saunders Lewis v Andy Warhol' ......

'A personal ffilm..... a group portrait from a time before Welsh music was Cool or Devolved, and a ffilm created exclusively from the images that I shot and independently produced at that time. A ffilm found on the stockroom floor is the best description of the form of the film but a truer, more emotionally apt title for the ffilm would be 'Have You Seen Your Culture Baby, Standing In The Shadows ?'

Emyr Glyn Williams is a committed independent film maker who is a BAFTA winner for his debut film Y LLEILL (The Others) (2005) and has seen his concert film NOBODY KNOWS IF IT EVER HAPPENED (2006) with krautrock legends FAUST praised by the critics and securing a cinema run at the prestigious ICA Cinema in London.

 


The Penny Dreadful - new release

Title: Stone Baby / 13 Bones

Artist: The Penny Dreadful

Cat No: ANKST 122

Digi Rel: October 13th 2008

Format: Double 'A' Download Single

 

ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce details of the debut single from newest signings The Penny Dreadful. Their debut single will be available on download only from October the 13th onwards with their debut mini LP scheduled for release in the early part of 2009.

 

The Penny Dreadful are a three piece band comprising ...

Ben "Grimm" Lee - vox / guitar and former bassist for Wendykurk ('Wales's most rancid musical cancer' - according to one Radio 1 DJ !) who disbanded in 2004

Wenna "Gravy" Jones - fledgling bassist and general uber-candy rock babe.


and finally

Ant "Nos" Hughes - drummer, another escapee from Wendykurk.

The last year has seen the band coming together to create music in one form or another despite becoming progressively disillusioned with the modern music scene and the way you can't tell most bands apart with your eyes closed - and in some cases with them open.


In response to these dull monotonous servings of shit the band have decided to expand their sound and influence to embrace all the decades of great music, from The Beatles to Nirvana, from T Rex to the Pumpkins... to name but a few.


The band hope to lick you soon !

Title: Cân y Mynach Modern / Bombstar

Artist: Datblygu / Charlie Sharp

Cat No: ANKST 121

Dydd. Rh: Awst 2008

Fformat Record 7”: (nifer cyfyngiedig ar gael)

Ar gael: www.ankst.net / Shellshock / Siopa Cymraeg

Braint gan ANKSTMUSIK yw cyhoeddi fod trac gwbl newydd gan y grwp chwedlonol Datblygu ar fin cael ei rhyddhau.

Recordiwyd Cân y Mynach Modern yn gynharach eleni gan David R. Edwards a Pat Morgan draw yn Stiwdio Fflach yn Aberteifi.

Dyma oedd y tro cyntaf i Datblygu recordio ers bron i bymtheg mlynedd. Mae’r trac yn bodoli fel ‘one-off’ gan fod yna ddim cynllunie i Datblygu gynhyrchu unrhyw gerddoriaeth pellach.

Recordiwyd y trac yn benodol ar gyfer noson o ffilmie am y grwp a gynhaliwid draw yn y Llyfrgell Genedlaethol yn Aberystwyth nol ym mis Ebrill (‘Llwch Ar Eich Sgrin’). Mae’r gan llais a piano sy’ prin yn para munud a hanner yn ymgais i ddod a hanes a gyrfa y grwp i ben, rhyw fath o ‘tying up the loose ends…’. Ma hi’n son am y profiada’ ‘ma David wedi profi yn nyddie ola y grwp a be ddigwyddodd iddo fo ar ol i’r grwp ddod i ben.

Mae hi’n bosib deud fod hi’n drac fregus , onest a trist a prin fod trac tebyg iddi wedi cael ei rhyddhau o’r blaen yn y Gymraeg. Mae ochr arall y record yn cynnwys trac gan Charlie Sharp ar wahoddiad David R. Edwards. Mae ‘Bombstar’ unwaith eto yn drac piano a llais sy’n llwyddo i gynhesu rhywfaint ar y gwynt oer sy’n rhedeg trwy ochor arall y record.

Artist: Datblygu / Charlie Sharp

Title: Cân y Mynach Modern (The Song of the Modern Monk) / Bombstar

Format: 7" (limited)

Rel Date: August 2008

ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce the release of a brand new track from Welsh language music legends and perennial Peel favourites Datblygu. Following on from The Peel Sessions collection released earlier in 2008 and the recent press interest in magazines such as Plan B this 7" single features a brand new track recorded in April by David R. Edwards and Pat Morgan. The track was the first time the band had recorded in nearly fifteen years and is intended as a full stop on their legacy rather than a brand new start. The song recounts (over its brief ninety seconds) the turmoil and madness that engulfed the singer as the band fell apart in the mid nineties and the long road to recovery that resulted from the fallout.

It is a fragile and unsettling piece of music that has no real precedent in the Welsh music scene.

The b side features Bombstar - a track performed by singer Charlie Sharp especially chosen by Datblygu mainman David R. Edwards to complement the sparse and chilly A side.


 

NEWYDDION DATBLYGU ...........casgliad Peel Sessions allan ar CD, trac hollol newydd fel sengl a noson o ffilmie am Datblygu yn yr Llyfrgell Genedlaethol yn Aberystwyth.................................

DATBLYGU NEWS..........................BBC Peel Sessions album out May, a new 'one-off' single out in the Summer, and a special film night at the National Library in Aberystwyth.........................................

 

Braint gan ankstmusik yw cyhoeddi fod cewri y sin tanddaearol DATBLYGU ar fin rhyddhau casgliad o draciau hanesyddol. Mae'r grwp (David R. Edwards a Pat Morgan) hefyd newydd recordio trac gwbl newydd - 'Can y mynach modern' - a fydd yn ymddangos fel sengl ar label ankstmusik yn yr haf.

Ma'r band wedi penderfynnu dod at ei gilydd i recordio yr un trac yma (ond ddim i berfformio) i ddathlu ymddangosiad casgliad o sesiynau y grwp ar gyfer sioe Radio 1 John Peel a fydd yn dod allan ar ddydd Llun Mai y 5ed.

 

TITLE - DATBLYGU: PEEL SESSIONS 1987 - 1993

CAT NO - ANKST 119

REL. DATE - MAY 5th 2008

FORMAT - 20 TRACK CD

'You'd have to be a bit of a ninny to ignore Datblygu' - JOHN PEEL

'Datblygu are the Welsh Gospel' - GRUFF RHYS

ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce the imminent release of a collection of historical recordings by one of Wales most legendary underground groups.

Datblygu (Develop) recorded five sessions for the John Peel Radio show between 1987 and 1993 and all twenty of those tracks will be featured on this release.

John Peel was a massive fan (he said that Datblygu were the best incentive anyone could have for learning Welsh) and his support for the band outside their native Wales was instrumental in the development of the whole underground music scene in Wales that later blossomed into the Cool Cymru explosion.

The collection features many exclusive non-album tracks, full notes on the songs by singer David R. Edwards and highlights the band's unique musical style with a knack for genius lyrics and performance.
