Welsh people take note!

4 out of 5 stars

Anybody who's from South Wales, or in and around the Swansea area needs to see this film if they haven't already! An all star Welsh cast with Rhys Ifans[Notting Hill,Little Nicky] , Llyr Evans, Morgan Hopkins[Very Annie Mary] as well as nearly anybody who's ever been on Pobl y Cwm and Pam Fi Duw?. Not to forget Dougray Scott [MissionImpossible2, Deep Impact] playing the dodgy Copper, Terry Walsh.

It's an accurate portrayal of life in the South Wales valleys, filmed in Swansea, Port Talbot and Neath it's a must see for anybody with ties to the area and is bizarre watching a film and knowing where they are.

It's a story of drug use, murder, revenge, prostitution, rugby and karaoke.

Classic Quote:

Ifans: Why is it a 2 litre bottle of coke costs 27p?
Evans: Super-duper deal
Ifans: Aye, but a 1 litre bottle costs 37p?
Evans: That's f***ing weird, cos you's paying less for more like
Ifans: I knows
Evans: Why's that then?
Ifans: I don't know, it's really f***ing weird!

A must see for anybody!


Wakey Wakey…Elliott Smith's here

OH HE'S GOOD!!! He's been waking me up every morning with this corker of an album…the lovely acoustic intro in 'son of Sam' is perfect for a nice gentle wake up, and keeps you interested enough so you don't fall back asleep. My favourite track is number 4 -Everything Reminds Me of Her, brilliant…just brilliant.

Undoubtedly one of the obvious songwriting talents of the modern era, his combintion of instruments and his husky yet melodic vocals combine an interesting blend of everything I like about music. He's the reason I picked up a guitar and his untimely suicide earlier this year was tragic.

Check him out.
