Focus Wales

Last weekend may have constituted the most fun we have had in Wrexham thus far! Focus Wales keeps on getting bigger and better and it’s been such an honour to be a part of it for 3 2 consecutive years. The talent in Wales is incredible!

This year we played the after-party show in a venue called un-deg-un; once a JJB now refitted into an art space; perhaps one of the most interesting venues we have been lucky enough to play!

A particular highlight was hanging out with 2/3’s of the Joy Formidable; whom Edd has been on tour with in a past lifetime. The fact that these guys take time out of their schedule to check out the local scene is a credit to their enthusiasm for Welsh music, and a credit to the organisers of Focus Wales!

Other highlights include:

  • Edd’s random beard buddy.
  • John’s birfday meal
  • Finding out about Laura’s drunken pepper ritual
  • Angela speaking on BBC radio Wales abut RWMD14 and curating her own Pili Pala stage with some awesome acts. 
  • Chatting with David Owens about the crushing apathetic weight of lonely-man pizza delivery.
