Gruff Rhys to Headline Truck Festival

Huge thanks to the Truck Festival gang for bringing the Hotel Shampoo travelling roadshow to their festival this year.


The hotel staff will be checking in between the 22nd and 24th of July, and hopefully, will also get to watch Jonny and John Grant at the very least.

Stop Press: In more surf related revelry, Thanks to @futurexwives for bringing in a VHS copy of John Carpenter’s 1974 space surfing smash Dark Star to the Frankfurt show for signing, unfortunately Mr Carpenter couldn’t attend.

The Surf Pledge Pays up!

Pledge produces plastic palm perfection.

Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl were inundated by Surf themed memorabilia on their recent tour in the U of K.

Having signed the Surf Pledge at the start of the tour, the first surfboard arrived in Liverpool, whilst shows in Bristol, Cambridge and London all featured plastic Palm trees that measured up to the 2 meter plus requisite.

Currently on tour in central europe, who knows what the magical mainland will produce in the coming days!

Niwl guitarist and solo star Alun Tan Lan measures up a tree at the Cambridge Palm Measuring Academy the CPMA a few days ago.

Gruff Rhys and Dylan Goch will be in Guadalajara, Mexico from the 4th – 7th April for the screenings there.
