Gruff Rhys

Gruff Rhys, lead singer of The Super Furry Animals, is playing a show at Schubas tonight. Not sure why I'm not going, as I'm a pretty big fan of SFA. And Schubas is a much smaller place the typical venues they play. Guess it's a commentary on my old age. Or maybe I just had a long week of work and needed a rest. Actually, I do think it's the later.

Hearing some of his solo stuff, I'm kinda bummed I'm not there. Below is a song from "Candylion":

I do recommend checking out SFA or Gruff Rhys' solo stuff. Early SFA was much more aggressive and punky while later stuff is more poppy. I like both, though must admit the early stuff holds a special place in my heart.

Here's a cool video they made for "Lazer Beam". Give it a listen if so inclined:
