Eliffant, were together for nearly seven years, and gigged extensively throughout Wales in the late seventies and early eighties. This was at the time when the Welsh language music scene was at its height. They played original material, and were generally thought of as a New Wave Progressive Rock band. They built one of the first 2k P.A. rigs to be used in the Welsh language scene, and enjoyed playing LOUD!
With the above line-up they recorded two albums, M.O.M. and Gwin Y Gwan. They also recorded a single on the M.A.C.Y.M. label, finding its way on to cafe and pub jukeboxes. Eliffant were voted the best rock band by the readers of the pop/youth magazine Sgrech, in the first competition held in 1979. Colin Owen was replaced by drummer Gordon Jones, and the band recorded a single, Ti Yw’r Unig Un I Mi / Tywyllwch on their own label, Llef.
