If Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones represents what Wales currently is – a grey, gutless and limp country.

Then this is what Wales should aspire to be – an unstoppable force, running like a nutter through the streets of Aberystwyth to the sound of Genod Droog.

The free runner is Gwion Llyr and the song is an early Genod Droog track featuring Gwyneth Glyn on vocals. The group split up in 2008 but here’s their history, as featured on the BBC’s music page:

The origins of Genod Droog can be traced to a police cell in Cardiff. That’s where Dutch DJ Kim De Bills met Mr Phormula, an American born Welsh bred rapper, when both were wrongly accused of being football hooligans.

Later that evening they chanced upon a smooth lounge trio, made up of a Welsh poet and two Korean brothers, and soon after Genod Droog was born.

Which is a colourful way of saying that they all met at schools/colleges in north Wales. Former member Dyl Mei‘s still involved in Welsh music as a producer and Ed Holden aka Mr Phormula, has his own studio as well performing as a beatboxer.
