I meant the fact that half the population of Wales are in France watching the football. Or were until they lost. :lol:

I'm pretty sure the number of metally alternative people I saw on the streets of North Wales genuinely did decrease while I lived there (between 2011 and 2015). I still used to see quite a few knocking around in Bangor but they were usually zombie-eyed students shuffling to and from their grotty flats and now I think about it, it was probably just the same half a dozen people reappearing each day.

When I first moved there the scene was pretty good, there weren't any major local gigs or anything but there were definitely club nights going on (I grabbed a fatty at one in my Freshers week), usually with reasonably good attendance. By the time I left the uni's rock and metal society (which I'd always largely avoided) had basically been dissolved and there weren't any events going on anymore.

I always wondered if the folk metal thing pre-2010 attracted some of the long-hairs to Wales because of it's mystic neo-pagan-bullshit. If so the relative death of folk metal would certainly contribute some explanation to their disappearance.
I used to have a link to a social networking site here but these days you all probably already know who I am.

Premature like ejaculation it might be but things are looking reasonable in this field.

Agreed, That must have been why I couldn't get connected yesterday. Black became white, up became down, etc.

This will not do! I'd better bring it back down to earth. Two former denizens of this forum, Twaddlefish (the originator of this thread!) and LittleMissMetal are no longer together.
