Datblygu 1985-1995

Datblygu- Welsh for development.
Here are some sleeve notes:
A word from Gruff Rhys, SFA, Esq…
'Beginning with the aching pop standard ‘Y Teimlad’ this collection gives us a glimpse of a band capable of anything. It seems to me that Datblygu are one of those bands whom standing upon their seedy pulpit hold up a mirror to the society they live in. A lazy comparison would be someone like Serge Ginsbourg. But that slimeball had 50 million heads to fill his mirror and bank account. David “The Last Communist in Europe (Too Skint To Go To Cuba)” R. Edwards on the other hand communicates here to half a million Welsh speakers fucked on Thatcherism. This ever poignant work comes as a sonic and moral warning to a complacent generation of white hicks on coke, looking for a welcome break on the third [motor] way to oblivion'.
