Super Furry Animals arrived on the music scene in 1995 with the release of their first EP Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (In Space). They were quickly recognized as being amongst the most inventive bands of the ’90s British music boom and released a string of lauded albums, which included their breakthrough Rings Around The World.
last year saw a special 15th anniversary re-issue of their only entirely Welsh language long player Mwng by Domino Records. To mark the event, Super Furry Animals – dormant since the 2009 touring for their last album Dark Days/Light Years due to individual music projects – got together to perform together again. They headlined festivals around the UK and Europe as well as the 4Knots Festival in New York City in July.
