Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau

There was a story all over the press yesterday about Jimi Hendrix recording the Welsh national anthem in the style of his demolition of the Star Spangled Banner. You can hear the track here.

The sound took me back to the Royal Oak in Splott years ago because I remember that Phil 'n Tich used to finish their set with the very same song in the very same style.

I wonder if there is any chance that the discovery will turn out to be Tich Gwilym of Penygraig rather than Jimi Hendrix of Seattle after all?

I was sorry to discover while googling round the issue that Tich died in 2005.
