‘Datblygu formed in January 1982 in reaction to the brain washing music blindly tolerated by those around them’
The words above came from a seventeen year old David R.Edwards as he explained the formation of the most influential of all Welsh bands – DATBLYGU. John Peel favourites with six radio sessions recorded, three thrilling albums – WYAU(1988) / PYST(1990) / LIBERTINO(1993) – that formed the artistic bedrock for the Cool Cymru explosion that went overground in the late nineties and a frontman who came over as an utterly unique Welsh hybrid of Bukowski, Mark E.Smith and Rimbaud.
