C’Weiriwch fy Ngwely (live at Real World Studios)

9Bach

10th Anniversary edition released on 16 August 2019

Track Commentary by Lisa Jen Brown: A question and answer between a mother and her son. He is tired and low, and keeps repeating “make my bed, make my bed, I am sick, I am sick.

He might be on his death bed, or certainly love-sick, and he keeps telling his mother what his wishes— or even what his ‘will’ —is… to give his father five pounds, his sister a sewing machine, and his dear mother, he will give all his fortune. But —for his loved one— a rope to strangle her with. Indeed this to me is a horror story.
