Have been listening to a LOT of Gruff Rhys over the last few weeks. He and the Super Furry Animals have always had brilliant videos for their tracks so here is a roundup of my favourites:
‘God! Show Me Magic’ from Fuzzy Logic (1996):
An interview with ‘young adult television’ hero Toby Anstis on The O Zone, about Ice Hockey Hair EP (1998):
‘Rings Around the World’ from Rings Around the World (2001):
‘Candy Lion’ (Gruff Rhys), From Candy Lion (2006):
‘I Lust You’ From Neon Neon’s Stainless Style (2008):
I have seen SFA play a few times, and i was very excited when going to the Green Man Festival last year that Gruff was playing on the Sunday. 100 tonnes of mud and too much gin later i managed to sleep through not only his set but the whole Sunday of the festival. I wont be making the same mistake at End of the Road Festival this year, i’m telling myself.
