Blue Monday in Portmeirion

Having bitched on here in the past about the narrow and unadventurous repertoires of most Welsh male voice choirs it’s heartening to note that the Brythoniad Male Voice Choir have given the full choral treatment to New Order’s Blue Monday. The track has been recorded to help publicise Festival No. 6, a Prisoner-influenced she-bang to be held at Portmeirion. Hopefully they can follow it up with Release the Bats by the Birthday Party or maybe Bikini Girls With Machine Guns by The Cramps.
