#STANDFORSOMETHING Mazes’ Top Ten Moments in Welsh Music

The band celebrate this weekend’s Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING show in Cardiff with a suitably Welsh playlist.

On Saturday, Mazes are set to support Eagulls at the Cardiff Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY date, at Clwb Ifor Bach.

To coincide with this, the trio - who released latest album, ‘Wooden Aquarium’ last month via FatCat (read an interview with Jack and our review at these respective links) - have let us in on their favourite Welsh musical moments.

They veer from the obvious (who’d be missing Super Furry Animals or Tom Jones?), to the current (Joanna Gruesome and Cate Le Bon), to the ‘OK we’re squeezing this one in’ (Carmarthenshire-born John Cale singing the Lou Reed-penned Velvet Underground track ‘Lady Godiva’s Operation’).

Here are their picks:

Tom Jones, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - Long Time Gone

Meic Stevens - Gwenllian

Joanna Gruesome - Sugarcrush

Y tebot piws - Mae rhywyn wedi dwyn fy nhrwyn

Super Furry Animals - Receptacle for the Respectable

Cate Le Bon - Chairs in the Dark

Heather Jones - Nos ddu

Badfinger - Come And Get It

The Velvet Underground - Lady Godiva’s Operation

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci - Young Girls & Happy Endings/Patio Song

Mazes play the Cardiff Dr. Martens #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour in association with DIY date on Saturday 11th October at Clwb Ifor Bach. They also appear in-store at the Cardiff Dr. Martens branch at 6.30pm.
