    label: ankst

    Ankst are proud to announce a special re-release of the classic Datblygu singles collection. 20 tracks from the greatest Welsh band of all - Datblygu (Develop). This collection features all the Anhrefn, Ofn and Ankst singles as well as the complete Datblygu Christmas album - 'Blwch Tymer Tymor'. The collection includes the classic 'Y Teimlad'' (The Feeling) famously covered by the Super Furry Animals on their classic album MWNG. This new CD reissue also includes a specially written introduction by SFA frontman Gruff Rhys. Gruff Rhys says on the sleeve notes that Datblygu came as "a sonic and moral warning to a complacent generation of white hicks on coke' and 'if Datblygu were the inspiration for Gruff Rhys and SFA and a new generation of proud Welsh youth to pick instruments, then their legacy is an important one' - Melody Maker. 'David R.Edwards - An intermittently inspired but far too wayward genius' - NME.
