NoGood Boyo

Trash-trad group NoGood Boyo is the only band you need to see if you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you locked Enter Shikari, The Prodigy and Meredydd Evans, in one room and told them to make some noise. They are also the only band with an accordion to request extra security staff, and paramedics on standby after audiences shattered dancefloors at their concerts with their amalgamation of sounds of DnB, Rap, Techno and Electronica.

Dressed in attire resembling a steampunking Welsh Nana, and with their music mixing Welsh language songs with the sounds of 90s rave and nu-metal, NoGood Boyo are are ready to rave like it’s 1699.

NoGood Boyo take their genre-bending ‘trash-trad’ label from the purists out to stop them, and the traditional music they have proudly mashed, remixed and moulded in to a 21st Century sound. Their uniform consists of a boiler suit, sunglasses, and a traditional Welsh hat – seen only on biscuit tins and tacky merchandise at Barry Island until now.

They have never hidden away from their political or social beliefs – they also include speeches made by Aneurin Bevan in the 1940s in their performances, and Leanne Wood of Plaid Cymru is featured in the video for another of the band’s tracks.

They are the perfect balance between paying tribute to their Welsh heritage and all out recklessness.

Go loud, or go home boyo.
