Poster from Thistledown’s farewell gig at The Garage, Swansea (13th April 2013)

Thistledown (as we knew it) is sadly no more…but we’re all still making music!

Loz Fancourt (vocals/guitar), James Beck (guitar/electric guitar), Adam Carter (drums/cajon/vocals) and Billy Morris (bass) are now Speed Trials, a fresh new-wave rock band, based in London.

Nathan Laurence (vocals/mandolin/flute/guitar), Jamie Nemeth (fiddle/violin) and Meg Woodhouse (violin) are still based in Swansea (Wales). Nathan plays a variety of gigs, solo and with Jamie, or as part of Jamie’s folk musical collaboration Plufysgallen.

This site remains as a trip down memory lane, and a way to stay in contact with us all.

Diolch 🙂
