Biography

Super Furry Animals drummer Dafydd Ieuan along with Rhys Ifans, Dic Ben, Kris Jenkins and Mick Hilton have teamed together to create The Peth who will issue their debut album ‘The Golden Mile’ on September 1 on the Strangetown Records Inc. label. The Peth will preview the album with the release of a single, and will also play selected live dates throughout the summer.

Ifans was the original vocalist in Super Furry Animals prior to departing the band to focus on his acting career. Formed in 2006 as an excuse for the band members to spend time together in the studio, the album was recorded sporadically over a 2 year period and tells of locations, characters and personal tales in a mile long stretch between the studio and the Grangetown area of Cardiff. According to Ifans everything needed to ‘sustain’ the recording was available on this stretch of road he dubbed The Golden Mile.

Written primarily by Ieuan, ‘The Golden Mile’ features ten tracks that range broadly between retro psychedelic pop and muscular stoner rock with titles including ‘Stonefinger’, ‘Shoot on Sight (Flock of Zeigheils)’, ‘Turbotank’ and ’69 Fanny Street’. Its raw, rambunctious nature will surely make for an electrifying live show when The Peth hit the road.

    "liam gallagher wannabe"??? are you f*cking serious? when have you ever seen either of the gallagher twats give beer to the audience, and flick their bare nipples to the crowd for a laugh. I went to the cwmparc gig tonight, it was brilliant. The band inc Rhys were ace. Its nice for once to see a band enjoying themselves onstage and laughing and smiling.. and fair play to Rhys for doing something he obviously enjoys and doing it well!

    secondfig, i think you must have caught rhys on a bad day - i saw them laast night and while it was true that he was certainly a bit 'hyper', Rhys was on good form, sang really well, and the whole gig was excellent! go see them again to give them another chance, they are worth it, i promise you!

    Saw them at the Astoria 2 on Saturday, and they were absolutely awful... - actually that's unfair, let me rephrase that - Rhys was absolutely awful, the band themselves were fine, in fact I felt sorry for them having to put up with an actor-wannabe-Liam Gallagher-poseur who was completely wasted, couldn't sing, couldn't talk and made himself look like an absolute tit. He managed to empty a fairly packed dancefloor within 3 songs and completey change my opinion of him (Rhys Ifans) - I used to quite like him and now I think he's an idiot.

    Yea this album is fantastic. I knew that it would be. I guess this means it was worth the.... what was it? 3 years of waiting! I wish they would tour the US so bad!

    Saw the last couple of minutes at Green Man Festival, it was very very terrible. The tent was full at the beginning of the set, and then gradually emptied as people realised how bad it was. Sub-Oasis (who I hate too), posturing, laddish rubbish with no charm or finesse, or songs...
