Lovely Ugly / Pretty Shitty is a 15 track compilation of current underground Swansea guitar bands, along with a couple of local legends.
Where better to mark this auspicious occasion than at Swansea’s cultural centre, Elysium, with appearances from

“Kikker’s sound trundles through on the back of a caustic cavalcade of guitars, and an abrasive howl from the depths laced with withering sardonic scorn, it’s inspired by anger, injustice and inequality. It sounds like The Birthday Party‘s spitting rage and fury, colliding with the relentlessness of the early work of Fontaines DC. Absolutely fearsome and truly cathartic to hear” God is in the TV Zine

Rainyday Rainbow
“twisty turny thought juice, smothered in smashed up slithers of Psychedelic sauce, and pezazzed with punchy Punk doom.”

“Just when you think new ‘young’ music is dying on it’s feet something comes along that just knocks you sideways ” – Welsh Connections.

“ones to mercilessly, addictively but oh so gently, invade your musical heart, anall conquering, swirling mix of psychedelic pop, cascading, ethereal guitars and a hint of dirty bluesy punk”

Tom Emlyn
“eclectic and masterful… gold dust… If I could force everyone to listen to it, then I would” – The Indie Scene

Dead Noize
Three guys crammed in a Fiesta. Apparently. A rather noisy, energetic and rock fuelled Fiesta, I’d suggest…

DJs Hue (Swansea Sound / The Pooh Sticks), Catrin (The Loves) & Peter Stone (The Sweetest Ache)
