Biography

Carmarthen, Wales (1991 – 2006)

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci were a Welsh band formed in 1991 in Carmarthen, Wales. The band split in 2006. The band’s best known lineup was Euros Childs (vocals, keyboards), his sister Megan Childs (violin, backing vocals), John Lawrence (guitar, vocals), Richard James (bass), and Euros Rowlands (drums). The band was formed by Euros Childs, James and Lawrence whilst still at school, and they have seen a number of lineup changes (perhaps most notably, the departure of Lawrence following 1999’s Spanish Dance Troupe) during their existence. The band was well known for performing songs in both Welsh and English. Some of their best known songs include “Patio Song” (1997), “Poodle Rockin’” (1999) and “Stood on Gold” (2001).

The band’s first release was Patio (1992), a 10” collection of various live, home and studio recordings released on the Welsh Ankst label (this was later expanded for the 1995 CD version). In 1994 their first full studio album, Tatay appeared. Bwyd Time followed the next year - both were produced by Alan Holmes who also provided their colourful artwork. These early releases show a huge range of influences and styles: “Thema o Cartref”, the opening track of Tatay, for example, is a relatively gentle harmonium-backed song, while “When You Hear the Captain Sing” appears to be a tribute of sorts to Captain Beefheart and “Amsermaemaiyndod/cinema” presents one song in the right channel and a completely different one in the left.
