Gorwel EDWARDS
Gorwel Edwards, 1979Born: North Wales, 1950... Close firend of DAFYDD MORGAN, he was often given free reign over the Clustcwyr studio during leaner periods, and was able to hone an anarchic and not massively popular sound. He generated a small cult following before later becoming an accountant. He also produced and worked with HELENA'S BOX. Style: Spiky punk in the main. Midway between John Otway and Galactic Symposium. Songwriters: all penned by Edwards. Trivia: Loaned Morgan much of the money with which Clustcwyr was started. Bought into the company in the 80s. Dated HELENA JONES (also in the 80s) who the song HELEN is about.
