During the dark days of the ’79 referendum, Wales had lost its nerve and the Welsh rock scene was wallowing in nostalgia. But the raucous visit of the Sex Pistols to Caerphilly had stirred one schoolboy’s imagination. He had to be in a band...and from then on things were never quite the same.
Weaving images, music and a true life story, this is the autobiographical adventure of one man, spanning the last two decades of the Twentieth Century that brought us Cool Cymru and finally a Senedd in Cardiff Bay. An energetic and heartfelt portrayal of a time in our history when a restless generation insisted that the world came to Wales and that took Wales to the world.
