Late Night Stargazing

Regular readers will know that I love a band called Teenage Fanclub. They recently announced that Gerard Love would be leaving them, and then, shortly afterwards, that Euros Childs would be taking his place on their upcoming gigs.

There’s a bit of history here, Euros having recording an album under the moniker Jonny with Norman Blake of Teenage Fanclub.

But there’s more: Euros was the main man in wonderful Welsh psych-folk-pop band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, and it is to them that I turn tonight.

This is bloody wonderful:

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci - The Blue Trees

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci – Fresher Than the Sweetness in Water

A memory: we went to see Euros perform up at the Park Stage at Glastonbury one particularly muddy year. He played that tune. We found ourselves standing right next to Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals fame. Starstruck, most of us were too shy to say hello. But not Llŷr. Oh no.

llyr n gruff

Love you dude.

More soon.
