Vinyl LP pressing. A Welsh language pop album with a couple of verses of Zulu and an English title, Gruff Rhys' Pang! Was produced and mixed by Muzi in Johannesburg, South Africa. The 9-track collection was developed unexpectedly over about 18 months and recorded in Cardiff, Wales. Gruff explains: "Pang! Is a Welsh language song with an English title. It started life as a folk reel and soon expanded into a 'list' song, listing various reasons for pangs; hunger, regret, twitter, pain, bad design etc. Using the English word pang in a Welsh language track may appear weird but I suppose it's like using the French word 'Magazine' in an English song. In that it's slightly pretentious but completely acceptable." Drums by Welsh-American psychedelic warlord Kliph Scurlock, brass by Gavin Fitzjohn and flute and percussion by engineer Kris Jenkins. Beats, bass and ah's by Muzi with Gruff on vocals and guitar.
