  1. So, I moved away the best part of 15 years ago now, with a brief stint in Zooport for 6 months with my ex partner around 10... I’ve only been back to Cardiff a handful of times since, and I literally didn’t recognise the city centre at all, so much so I was lost at times in and around the extended St. David’s shopping mall, and when I had a little look for a greasy spoon that used to be by the bus station in Newport, I discovered that that part of town was also drastically different now... AAAND, in an apt way, I started watching a series on the BBC last night about a group of vega
  2. Haha, you’ve swapped one false god for another pal - Praise Be To Papa Nurgle!
  3. Swear I saw you on a Warhammer Facebook group a little while ago!
  4. No skin in the FF game, but just wanted to say Come On You Irons! ⚒
  5. The recent retrospective by Howl for Ready Eye Collective. Many memories, and all happy. I miss and love South Wales!
  6. Veego Andy? I believe he was based in Bristol, but is now further afield- I want to say Manchester, but don’t take that as gospel... was in a band called No Sleep who were cool. Bumped into him on tour/at shows once or twice Over the years.
  7. I had a brief flirtation with wearing clothes that weren’t black for a period of 3 years... shocking, I know.
  8. I’m sure Hywel will be able to hook you up, but if not, I still have The Keep CD.
  9. Has anyone got the DDF EP knocking about online at all? I really want to listen to it again, but my copy is long gone 😩
  10. So hot, I wore a white shirt today. My people do not appreciate this climate.
  11. Started watching The Wire last night - only did the very first one and I can tell this is going deep... about to watch another few now before bed.
  12. I’ve watched a few movies the last week; Kickboxer: Vengeance - A bit shit, but in a good, cheesy way. Criminal lack of JCVD kicking arse. Midsommar - Nicely shot, and not a bad movie by any stretch, but I found it a bit underwhelming. I also didn’t like any of the characters, but I wasn’t sure if you were supposed to? Interested to know what everyone else thought. The Night Eats The World - French zombie movie, lovely stuff with lots of nice camerawork and editing, and fittingly quite poignant at the moment. Very much enjoyed it.
  13. I’ve not, but I’ll check it out. The Royal Tenenbaums almost took the spot in place of Rushmore, but I think even though it’s technically a better movie, it doesn’t have quite as much charm. And it’s always going to have that link with American Nightmare for me, which is a bonus...
  14. Stalker by Tarkovsky is my 6th place choice 😂
  15. 1. La Haine 2. Beetlejuice 3. Rushmore 4. Predator 5. Alien
  16. Also, Totem Skin - we put these guys on down here and they were incredible; mixing punk, hardcore, d-beat, crust etc etc... they were I think being courted by Deathwish for their third album, but broke up before it’s release;
  17. Criminally underrated band you may have heard of already from the North East called Geist - angry, scrappy hardcore with more than a few nods to Cursed (Chris does guest vocals on the album...);
  18. State Run were the young lads from Penarth, right? The Threat from Caerphilly(?) ...and of course, metalcore titans Beneath The Shadows 😂👀
  19. Well you were in about 16 yourself weren’t you!? 😘
  20. I think like a lot of places, most bands are only interested in playing it safe to the bigger crowds - it seems to be that London, Leeds/Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham are the top tier, with places like Bristol and Southampton being next up - I was involved with putting on shows in Plymouth for a good 5-6 years until the kids came along, and it got increasingly difficult to book bands, coupled with the fact that so many venues here and across the country are closing, it doesn’t make for a thriving scene unfortunately. I think the way people consume music has changed the way thin
  21. I’m wracking my brains as to who it could have been - they used to buy them in the Tesco on Albany Road, so it was definitely someone Roath based. I’m drawing a blank though - strange the things you remember and forget.
  22. Last show I went to in Cardiff was Turnstile at The Globe, 5 years ago! I’ve not lived in SW for over a decade now, but Connors was there, just before he went worldwide, and he was the only person I recognised from the old days. I know there’s still a hardcore scene to speak of, with a label/distro called Nuclear Family who I’ve done some design work for in the past, but I couldn’t tell you much more to be honest. Strangely, I mostly seem to bump into old faces at shows in other parts of the country.
  23. Maybe I’m mis remembering then, but someone on here definitely used to buy the expensive as shit bourbons until Sam or Hywel were like “what are you doing ya prannet, the cheap ones are vegan!”.
