And so it was that our four young, ahem, intrepid explorers ventured far from their home in the city of two birds near the sea across unmarked territory to the mythical land of the druids (you do know Wales IS real, right? – TTW Ed), finding themselves beyond the ken of the Sat Navaho and deep into the place where the people who feed on the fruits of the sea come to pay homage at the feet of those they call the Sendelicans.
Yes, it was Crabstock! The now annual event showcasing the fantastic Fruits de Mer label and a mix of the best psychedelic/acid folk/krautrock/space rock bands currently releasing stuff on green, red, or in fact just about any colour you care to name (even black) vinyl, doing it live for the masses. This time in Cardigan.
Listen as the travellers discuss what little they know about the bands on show before, fortunately, getting real information from an authoritative source. Then thrill as the tired few reflect on a full 7 hours of music, 5 bands and a lot of Crabstock beer (the Mantle Brewery is now in shortage crisis) from the friendliest show in this, or any, town.
What I mean is, have a listen to our review of Crabstock including an exclusive interview with Fruits de Mer head honcho, Keith Jones, and an explanation of why you
should have to sign up for all future Fdm releases and any Crabstocks coming your way.

Here is the requisite pictorial evidence that this all really did happen (courtesy of the finely focussed camera of new friend of the pod, Alice Springs – boooiiinnnggg!!!!).
