Born in a bedroom in Cardigan thirty years ago, the band Datblygu were hailed as
the first truly modern Welsh-language group, their uncompromising, immense music
has been described as genius, and their influence on Welsh music as immeasurable.
Fronted by the charismatic and anarchic rebel poet David R. Edwards, the group
came to define what T Gwydwr's Gareth Potter calls 'the soul of the Welsh
underground scene in the 1980s. Datblygu's acidic take on modern Wales - the
artistic bourgeoisie and politicians were typical targets - liberated a whole
generation of bands and artists. Five Peel sessions with legendary Radio 1 DJ John
Peel is some measure of the effect they had on the converted. Championed by Peel but
ironically ignored by mainstream Welsh media, the band was part of an energetic
underground scene which also included Y Cyrff, Yr Anhrefn, Ffa Coffi Pawb and
Llwybr Llaethog, in a random alliance which re-defined Welsh language popular
music. This new independent film from Director Owain Llyr celebrates 30 years of
Datblygu, and features extensive interviews with David R.Edwars and Patricia
Morgan from the group, as well as notable others who remember this anarchic
ensemble in its prime. Prosiect Datblygu premieres at Theatr Mwldan.
Spoke to Dave the other night , both he and Pat are hoping to make an appearance. It coincicides too with the release of a new four track E.P, which on all accounts ( haven't heard it yet) recalls the classic Datblygu sound and line up of Pat and David. Looking forward to getting hold of it.
