I live in Wirral, which used to be in Cheshire, but got absorbed into Merseyside in 1974, until Mrs Thatcher abolished that entity. Given half a chance I'm sure she would have quite happily physically destroyed the place as well. However we are still here, abstaining against whichever government happens to be in power!
Actually I am a Brummie by birth, Welsh and Lancastrian and Black Country by ancestry, and spent a muddled childhood getting comprehensively miseducated in Birmingham, Dublin,Ann Arbour in Michigan, Colchester,Willamstown Mass., and Norwich, until I ended up here quarter of a century ago.
Wuth these divided loyalties I support England in cricket, Ireland in rugby, Tranmere Rovers in soccer,Wales for mountain walking, the Holy Modal Rounders against the spirit of blandness in American music, and finally Harry Cox against the world in singing!

South Wales

This calls for a meet somewhere.

Suggest somewhere within staggering distance from Cardiff General (sorry Central Station for the younger generation) om say a Friday or Saturday.

Just a thought.

Now for the quiz.

"Thank the Lord we are a musical Nation".

Who, and which backwards Welsh Village.

First correct answer posted wins a pint of "Skull Atack" in a Kairdiff Pub.

That has to be the Reverend Eli Jenkins, poet and preacher, from "the small town, starless and bible-black" of Llaregyb.
I'm not sure I could cope with a pint of Skull Attack, but perhaps I could follow Willy Nilly postman's example and down a bucket of black brackish tea!

Why hide the origins of Dylan Thomas's fictional village by misspelling the name? Llareggub is 'bugger all' spelt backwards, deliberately by the author.

Sooooo... Where are the best folk clubs/venues in the Cardiff area then? I must admit, I'm pretty stumped. Do they all insist on mics and amps and Big Scarey Things like those? Eeeeeek! Prefer the quieter accoustic thingummy m'self.

And could someone tell me what "Skull Attack" is please! Sounds like a drink that heavy metal fans knock back, not a peaceable, romantic, folkie beverage at all...

RE Llaregyb.pavane, I spelt it that way because thats the way its printed in my copy of Under Milk Wood.BTW has anyone posted Polly Garter's song here?

A Pint of S.A. to Pavane for getting it correct,
And a pint of whatever Matthew Edwards wishes to drink - for first up - Sorry Matthew the BBC "bowdlerised" Llareggub and the edit stuck.

I'll have a go at transcribing Polly Garters Song on Sunday, if nobody has posted it first.

The Cats Whiskers Skull Attack aka Brains S.A. A local Cardiff Brew, strong & bitter bitter. Not a session beer, its in the Youngs Special or Fullers ESB catagory. Your probably right in suggesting its not the Ale for a long evening.

To be honest a fammily illness has kept me confined to drinking within a few minutes walk of home for the last 2 years. But any suggestions for venues near General, or Queen St Station would be appreciated.

I always understood that it was Llareggyb because in Welsh "Y" seems to be pronounced "U" (as in "Cymru").
Ah well, you line and learn ($%^$£~# censors).

Anyway, Chalk up another one for Surrey.

Tom Dick and Harry were three fine men, and I'll never have such loving again. But I often think as I tumble into bed, of little WILLIE WEE and he's dead dead dead.

Part of Polly Garter's song from the greatest piece of literature in the English language that I've ever read. I'm sure that someone out there has all the words, and can input them quicker than me, but if anyone wants them all I can always listen to the tapes again and transcribe, but it would probably take forever.
