Super Furry Animals
Super Furry Animals commonly known as SFA is a Welsh rock band being formed in Cardiff. It is basically a Techno band formed by the Rhys, Leune and Pryce. They were together during their tour of the north east of France. Other Two members Bunford and Ciaran joined the team in 1995 and they collectively decided to form a band. Their theme music is psychedelic rock with an urge to re introduce the Welsh Renaissance.
First Commercial Success
Super Furry Animals got their first ever commercial EP in the 1995 with the name like Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch'. It has got its entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest name ever for an EP. It had also won a critical acclaim for the band their second and third EPs have a very short difference in the span of time. All of their lyrics are in Welsh except for the one song called God! Show Me Magic from Moog Droog.
Professional Position in the late 90s
In February 1996, the band's debut on Creation, Hometown Unicorn, became New Musical Express's Single of the Week, chosen by guest reviewers Pulp, and the first SFA single to chart in the UK Top 50, peaking at #47. This was the follow-up and re-recording of God! Show Me Magic, initially the sales were quite slow but later got a position in the demand by the public.
They got a very high rated success in the year 1999 as the NME readers named them Best New Band in January. In May, the single Northern Lites was released and made #11 in the charts. A dense production, with steel drums clattering out a calypso rhythm whilst Gruff sang an irreverent lyric about the El Ni?o-Southern Oscillation weather phenomenon, it was an apt taster for the new album, Guerrilla. Recorded at the Real World Studios, the album retained SFA's pop melodies but took a less guitar-centric approach to their execution and was their most experimental work to date. 2001-2003: Rings around the World' and ?Phantom Power.
After the ending up of Creation, SFA needed a new label Sony provided them with the label and encouraging them for the future projects too.
The band have posted two songs on their MySpace page in 2006 after the addition of new members and their sound is very reminiscent of the albums Radiator and Guerrilla.
SFA has signed to Rough Trade Records during 2006 and are reportedly working on three projects for the label. Gruff Rhys has also signed for Rough Trade Records as a solo artist in his own right and released a single on 7 vinyl and download entitled Candylion in late 2006 which preceded an album of the same name that was released during the second week of 2007.
