Bristol: among the most musical cities ever?
Portishead, Massive Attack and a bunch of music daredevils come from Bristol.
Maybe the air, the sea, the quality of ales and pubs, good schools and strong, tight friendships... ALL considered this beautiful town gave to music more than Liverpool;-)))
A genuine well-kept Welsh secret is a group called "Flying Saucers Attack", aka Rural Psychedelia, as they're sometimes also called, after the name of one of their best discs.

It's spacey, adventurous music, sometimes noisy free-jazz tinted, sometimes reminding the best Can from Germany.
A refreshing listening, nonetheless...
Thanks to Martin Stuart Moore for his beautiful bird-sight over Bristol.
