Frustratingly scarce early Welsh-language proto-techno / wave 12” from husband & wife duo Plant Bach Ofnus self-released via their own forward-thinking, sought-after label Ofn.  Interesting here to hear the group morphing out of their earlier cold-wave / industrial sound and starting to feel out the emergent club-focused styles of the time - highlight ‘Llif’ bobs around 94 bpm with chuggy industrial drums, kaleidoscopic shoe-gaze guitar shimmers and dreamy ambient pads, whilst ‘Pwylltrais’ is a more straight-up early acid squelcher with a typical home-brewed feel.  Other-side, ‘Gwastraff (Rhan 2)’ is the best Welsh New-Beat track you’ve never heard before, total mind-melter in d club, followed by the racier, bizarre sound-college techno cut ‘Gwenllian’.  Total head-scratcher and a genuine snow leopard 12”.. (NM / VG+).
