Pop Peth Music & Me
The Pop Peth exhbition in Oriel 1, St Fagans:National history Museum ends on January 10th, so there's still time to come and look at Gari Melville's superb collection of memorabilia, play Llwybr Llaethog's keyboard, see how a fanzine is made, learn about Spillers Records, watch music videos and leave your memories of your best gig ever!
We've been getting some lovely memories of best gigs and here are a few of my favourites....
Ashley McAvoy went to see Super Furry Animals in Clwb Ifor Bach in 1994, Nicola Stingl walked into Stuart Cable (previously of Stereophonics), Liz Magee saw The Beatles in the early 1960s but couldn't hear them because of all the screaming, Irwin Richards played tambourine with Supertramp (even though he wasn't invited to...), Beth Thomas saw CSN&Y, The Band and Joni Mitchell in Wembley in 1974, Jared lost his shoe at an Oasis concert in 1996, and lost three days in Glastonbury...Kevin Williams sat next to Robert Plant for an entire football match (Barry Town v UWIC), Stu saw Lift to Experience in Barfly in 2002, and as well as walking into Stuart Cable, Nicola Stingl also goes out with the guitarist in Through Solace. And my absolute favourite of today's bunch of best gigs goes to Laura Kemp who saw Motley Crue in the Cardiff International Arena in 2005 and writes 'I fainted when I saw Nikki Sixx for the first time.'
