R.I.P mclusky

Don’t you just love a Welsh accent?

A country’s got to be cool when towns have names like Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

They came up with characters such as Rupert Bear, Danger Mouse and Super Ted.


They pass the time away bog snorkelling.


They invented the long bow, which ultimately resulted in the offensive 2 finger solute. The idea being you had to hold the arrow between your pointer and big finger, so the enemy saw the back of these two fingers. You’d be offended to if it soon meant you’d get an arrow in the eye.


All these things are cool. But let’s face it the best thing to come out of Wales is mclusky.


They are pasty, they aren’t always pretty.


But, man, can they play the rock!


Sick!


Sadly this was recently announced, which means that I’ll no longer see their wacky antics erupt on stage. My ears will never be exposed the thumping of Jon's bass line, or the tickle of Andy's guitar riffs or the madness of Jack's thumping kit.

Farwell mclusky, I’m glad we meet when we did.





And yes I did steal the formate for this post from a radio competition fellow rrr listeners. It’s because I’m lazy.

dear sug
just got back to 'life as i know it' (sleeping wery late and working not much- though i do have a new school, which means i only get 3.5 day weekends instead of the 4 that i've become accustomed to).

two things-
1) that 'two fingers salute' was used by the poms (incl welsh) against the fwench (cos hobviously, they are the enemy) and
2) my mum can say the name of that welsh town. my mum is ah-some too. go mums.
