Title: Sesiwn Fawr, Dolgellau (Very Brief) Review
Post by: Gavin Crumpton on July 21, 2008, 06:42:53 PM
Good performance from the band on Friday night, especially considering it was their first gig since March.
Marred somewhat early on by sound problems which took a few songs to get sorted but very enjoyable once they were.
 
The sky was grey and it rained pretty much all day in North Wales and the Ace's response to this was somewhat optimistically to take to the stage wearing sunglasess. The set, so far as I can remember was:
 
Love Your Life
All Alone
Man Of Misery
Sudden Life
Romain
Shit On The World
Bananas
 
As mentioned elsewhere the last 3 songs were broadcast on S4C shortly afterwards and are available for playback on their website here:

(Episode 1 about 50 mins in)

The announcer said they come from Abertawe, I thought they came from Swansea.. :o

I didn't see any mention prior to the gig that S4C were filming & broadcasting (apologies if I missed this). Apparently, you can get S4C on Sky (which I don't have, but I know a man who does). Shame, as with a bit of prior knowledge, a good quality recording could have been made & shared around. Did anyone record this from S4C?

 ... er, YES!
I was fore-warned - being in North Wales especially for the gig!

Hmmm. Let's not beat about the bush. I was wondering how long a lead I would need to stretch from Unstately Nationsounds Manor to your video player, Mr ynecawla....
