‘Iechyd Da – The Music of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci’ Tribute album released this April

Welsh label Recordiau Prin are releasing an album of Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci covers entitled ‘Iechyd Da’, featuring reinterpretations of Gorky’s songs by various artists from Wales and beyond, the album will be free to download at the link below from 29th April.

Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci were formed in Ysgol Bro Myrddin, Carmarthen in 1991.Unusually for such a young band they drew upon a diverse & eclectic range of musical influences that put them noticeably at odds with other contemporary Welsh language bands of the time. An early association with the legendary label Ankst yielded three albums and a number of EP’s before the group made the step up to release a string of classic albums through Mercury & Mantra. Over the next decade, Gorky’s became regarded as one of the most original and unique bands in the history of Welsh music.

Recordiau Prin’s head honcho Ashley says the following “To proudly be able to acknowledge their continued influence today is a true testament to the quality of Gorky’s music. This album is not only intended to be a tribute to Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci but it is also a thank you from all of us who have loved the band’s music over the years!!

Contributions to the project have come from all over the world. Some of the bands were invited and many of the others approached me to be involved!!
