Ian Rush Band

Click here for that footballer who is named after us.

Once upon a time 5 boisterous boys from North Wales that liked nothing more than making loud noise and getting drunk. So they decided to start a band and wrote some Welsh language classics. This music could only be heard if they ever decided to play live and that depended upon them remembering to bring their instruments along and finding the bastard venue. After a get together the boys thought that rather than let the music die an inglorious death they would release an album. The album has taken 20 odd shittin' years to release. Seriously. It took a while for them to remember how to plug in the guitars as decades of alcohol abuse has taken it's toll.

Oh...We once had a John Peel Session. 

Scroll down for more stuff...if you can be arsed.

In case you're wondering, we have nothing to do with the footballer of the same name. Well, actually, two members of the band sometimes attended the same school as him but spent most of the time avoiding lessons. The remaining members of the band went to a different school and are more intelligent as they attended lessons.

Album out now

Yep...that's right. We've only gone and remortgaged our bastard houses and Gez has sold his remaining hair to fund this epic piece of musical mayhem.


Ian Rush - 10 Trac o'r Ffin

Who are we? Who are we?

Ian Rush
Ffurfiwyd y band ym 1991 yn dod allan o nifer o fandiau lleol Sir y Fflint The Happyheads, Melancholy Shopping Trol a Madfall Rheibus.

Dechreuodd gigio yn Eisteddfod yr Wyddgrug ym 1992 ac yna chwaraeodd Cymru gyfan. Yn y pen draw, ddaru Ankst yn arwyddo y grwp ym 1993, gan recordio trac ar yr albwm casgliad 'Ap Elvis' (Ankst 38) a recordion nhw EP 'Cwcwy' (Ankst 51.)

Recordwyd sesiwn ar gyfer y sioe John Peel ar 23 Hydref 1993 a chwaraeodd y band daith clwb pêl-droed i ddathlu yn cynnwys Aberystwyth Town, Mold Alexandra a Witton Albion ymhlith eraill.

Aeth y llinell wreiddiol i stasis ar ôl hyn gyda'r pwysau o recordio eu halbwm cyntaf yn rhy fawr er gwaethaf cefnogaeth gyson gan recordiau Ankst.

Ail ffurfwyd Ian Rush yn 2007 ar gyfer Eisteddfod yr Wyddgrug ac mae wedi gigio yn achlysurol ers hynny cyn ychwanegu Aaron Jones i'r criw yn 2011 ac yn olaf mynd i'r afael â'r albwm cyntaf anodd hwnnw a ryddhawyd ar ôl 2 sengl Catrin Nadolig ym mis Rhagfyr 2016 a Trip Traeth ym mis Mehefin 2017. Rhyddhawyd albwm 10 Trac o'r Ffin ym mis Awst 2017 ac mae ar hyn o bryd wedi gwerthu allan ei wasg gyntaf.

The band were formed in 1991 coming out of the ashes of several local Flintshire bands The Happyheads, Melancholy Shopping Trolley and Madfall Rheibus.
They began gigging at the Mold Eisteddfod in 1992 and then played all over Wales eventually being signed by Recordiau Ankst in 1993 contributing a track on the compilation album ‘Ap Elvis’ (Ankst 38) and an EP ‘Cwcwy’ (Ankst 51.)
A session was recorded for the John Peel show on October 23 1993 and the band played a celebratory football club tour taking in Aberystwyth Town, Mold Alexandra and Witton Albion amongst others.
The original line up went into stasis after this with the pressure of recording their first album too great despite fantastic support from Ankst records.
Ian Rush reformed in 2007 for the Mold Eisteddfod and have gigged sporadically since then before adding Aaron Jones to the line up in 2011 and finally getting to grips with that difficult first album released after 2 singles Catrin Nadolig December 2016 and Trip Traeth June 2017. The album 10 Trac o’r Ffin was released in August 2017 and has currently sold out its first pressing.

WIN WIN WIN THIS CAR

That's right, win Maz's car. It was running a few years back until he parked it up and forgot where he left it. Luckily for you guys,  the Po Po found it and he is generously giving it away. A more top drawer prize you will not find. Thanks Maz.

Note: winner must collect this car and quite soon as the Po Po have issued final warnings. The good news is that there is at least a litre of fuel in the tank but you will have to remove the water that is mixed in with it. Won as seen.

Entering couldn't be easier. One CD has a hand drawn penis wonderfully drawn inside the sleeve together with a number. Simply email the number to us and let us know which member of the band you think posed for the drawing by clicking on this blue text.  Remember though, you will need to get your skates on to pick this classic car up.

Disclaimer: No MOT, No Tax, No Insurance No Log book and Maz has forgotten what make it is. He thinks it may have once been a VW Golf or an Astra but he was pissed and has slept since he parked it up. He reckons most of the bodywork will 'tidy up nicely' with some T-Cut and elbow grease.
