        I used to live in Aberystwyth, still a bit of an ex-hippy town if you get out into the surrounding villages. Shame I don't still live there, as this sounds pretty good (and I bought the vinyl of Gruff Rhys' new LP recently, too, which is ace...but then 'mwng' is still my favourite SFA LP by some distance). If you want to bring it over to Nottingham, I'll see you there!

          Is this a good time to mention that Mrs Tommo has written a novella about music set in Aberystwyth? Yes, I think it is!

          Have a gander here

          Highly recommended, of course!

            Have to check that one out. The Malcolm Pryce novels, 'Aberystwyth Mon Amour' & 'Last Tango In Aberystwyth' nail the weird flavour of the place brilliantly, too. A film noir detective hitting the ice-cream stands on the beach front, and uncovering conspiracies involving grey-haired Welsh games teachers in deserted B&Bs...for the psychotic side of it, you can't do much better than Niall Griffiths' 'Sheepshagger'.

              'Fire and Water' is pretty gentle stuff in comparison with Niall Griffiths, but no worse for it. Quirky is about right, and the wife is as into her music as her narrator. It's not just a bloke thing, whatever this message board suggests!

                seconded - they are great! reminded me a bit of the film 'Gumshoe' with the Raymond Chandler dialogue transplanted to the UK. brilliant film btw...
