Not only does GRUFF RHY have a new album out on June 8th (Babelsberg, Rough Trade) but he’s also the cover star of Shindig! #79 (out May 3rd). Thomas Patterson and I travelled to Cardiff to spend a day with the psychedelic bard (see below photos), where Gruff discussed the making of the new album and entertained us. Here’s ‘Frontier Man’ the brand new video
It’s a big one for anyone; us particularly, considering what 2015 threw up. And here we are, alive and kicking at 50. The issue hits the shops on September 10th (when we will also unleash our Podcast with interviews and chat with TEMPLES, GHOSTBOX and WHITE FENCE recorded at Green Man). On October 8th we’ll have a fabulous party at Rough Trade East in London’s hip East End with THE PRETTY THINGS (sign up here).

What Is Shindig! Magazine
A publication put together with genuine understanding, sincerity and utter belief. We seek to end mediocrity in music magazines... to bring the scope and knowledge of old fanzines and specialist rock titles to a larger readership: quality journalism, columns, music and film history; exciting new bands and culture. From the most far-out ’60s sounds through country-rock and folk to soul and electronic experimentation. It's all there.
