Strange And Beautiful

Super Furrry Animals are a group of musicians from Wales. They have an eclectic sound that's infectious and fun. From their beginnings to now they have continued to improve on an already amazing cannon of work. Going in every which direction with their sound it is something that evolves with each release. Lead singer Gruff Rhys has released a few solo albums Yr Atal Genhedlaeth & Candylion along the way while still maintaining a steady output with the band. They have 9 studio albums to date Fuzzy Logic, Radiator, Guerilla, Mwng, Rings Around The World, Phantom Power, Love Kraft, Hey Venus! and Dark Days/Light Years. Paul McCartney commissioned them to remix unreleased Beatles tracks as part of the Liverpool Sound Collage project. He then returned the favour on "Receptacle For The Respectable" by contributing a "carrot & celery rhythm track". The band's drummer Dafydd Ieuan has also joined with actor Rhys Ifans (original lead singer for SFA) to form The Peth. Along with all of that Gruff has formed Neon Neon with Boombip and released "Stainless Style" in 2007. A busy group with no shortage of music for the masses. Take a trip with them:

"Something 4 The Weekend"

"God! Show Me Magic"

"The Man Don't Give A Fuck"

"Ymaelodi Ar Ymylon"
