In the beginning…

Probably the earliest evidence of recorded activity by SFA is a track called 'Dim Brys, Dim Chwys' (recorded in 1994 for the seminal 'Heno Bydd Yr Adar Yn Canu' programme on Radio Cymru, and subsequently featured on the 'Triskadekaphilia' compilation album released in August 1995).

However this track did not appear on their debut release – the 'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllllantysiliogogogoch(In Space) EP' – which appeared on the Ankst label in June 1995 (Ankst57).

As it happens, this release was also listed in The Guiness Book of World records – as the longest ever title for a commercially-released EP.

Next up was the 'Moog Droog' EP (Ankst62), which followed in October 1995 (featuring a first outing for 'God!Show Me Magic', which would later be released as a single).

Towards the end of 1995, Mark Bowen, a thrusting A+R man from Creation Records managed to persuade label owners Dick Green and Alan McGee to sign SFA which saw them joining a roster which was already home to, amongst others, Teenage Fanclub, Primal Scream and Oasis.

Since then the band have gone on to produce and release an astonishing and wide ranging collection of albums; details of which can be found on this page.
