DIRYWIO
Dirywio, 1979Formed: Welshpool, 1977 by ROBERTS and NEWBOLD. Influenced greatly by both DISERCH and THE SEX PISTOLS. They were at the centre of some controversy in 1978 when they played an open air gig naked to promote their EP. Style: Pistols-influenced all-out anarchic (and passionately Welsh) punk, led by the terrifyingly viscious duo of Corren and Roberts. Songwriters: Group penned. Trivia: Newbold and Corren were later to become CHEGWIN and PHILBIN in JOHN CRAVEN's ANGELS OF DEATH. Roberts' split eye-brow was apparently the result of him falling off his push-bike, and not, as he insisted, an injury from a bottle fight.
