Let me be direct: I am NOT a typical Welshman...or perhaps I should say, I don't fit the clichéd idea of what a Welshman is. I can't stand rugby, hate bad beer, am not very interested in choral singing and so on. I am, however, the grandson of two miners, I was born left wing and I used to be able to sing pretty well. When I was growing up, I found the traditional idea of Welsh identity and culture ever more stultifying the older I got - I despised the way that rugby was more important in my school than academic achievement or artistic ability and being of a creative bent, I rebelled against the clichés of Welshness. Rugby in particular is like a religion in Wales and to be disinterested in it is almost a sin - and I still find this attitude amongst my countrymen irritating in the extreme. I also hated the small-mindedness of many people in Wales regarding culture - you could be the greatest artists in the world, but unless you tackled subjects that fit the bill of 'Welshness', you'd get little or no attention. For example, the greatest living Welshman to me is John Cale (founder member of the Velvet Underground) but instead of being a household name in Wales, most Cymric people have never heard of him.
With this in mind, you'd think Max Boyce would not appeal to me.Read more ›
Boyce's humor is not to everyone's liking - but if you're a fan then you'll probably enjoy this.
As it's a live recording, the audio is not perfect - yet it is still well done. And you get to hear the laughter of the audience.
Given that it's now over 30 years old, the content of this recording is now somewhat dated. Many people simply won't get the jokes.
Yet, I found it fun and humorous.
a real laugh for any fan of rugby
but a brilliant laugh for any Welsh Fan
beats any modern humour
ie not funny pc stuff
enjoy again and again
