ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce the imminent release of a collection of historical recordings by one of Wales most legendary underground groups.
Datblygu ( develop ) recorded five session for the John Peel Radio show between 1987 and 1993 and all twenty of those tracks will be featured on this release.
John Peel was a massive fan ( he said that Datblygu were the best incentive anyone could have for learning Welsh ) and his support for the band outside their native Wales was instrumental in the development of the whole underground music scene in Wales that later blossomed into the Cool Cymru explosion.
The collection features many exclusive non-album tracks, full notes on the songs by singer David R.Edwards and highlights the band’s unique musical style with a knack for genius lyrics and performance.
