Friday September 24 th for an HTV programme. Tuesday October 5 th for a BBC programme. Monday October 11 th for a HTV programme. Thursday October 21 st for a HTV programme. Wednesday October 27 th a gig at Aberystwyth. Nineteen eighty-three started with Eliffant moving in to uncharted waters. HTV wanted to make a video of the band, not a conventional video of the band performing one of their songs but a dramatic interpretation of Gwin Y Gwan!
This involved Geraint, Gordon and John acting the part of down and outs in the back streets Eliffant - Tywyllwch (Vinyl) Cardiff. John and Gordon threw themselves enthusiastically in to their rolls, John did so literarily. They were Eliffant - Tywyllwch (Vinyl) as alcoholics, sitting around an open fire on a deserted building site near Cardiff docks. Geraint did his best to look soulful, and Gordon came across as a harmless character, down on his luck.
It was fun to make, but did little for the image of the band. Euros and Clive perhaps wisely stayed away from the shoot! On Saturday the 26 th of February they played a gig at the Tan y Bont club in Caernarfon, which was to be the last time that they played there. Like so many other places that once were popular for Welsh gigs in the eighties, it no longer exists as a venue.
The negotiations with Sain for the third album had not gone well. The band was keen to go in to the studio again, but the record company were less enthusiastic. Hefin Elis, the co-producer of Gwin Y Gwan was particularly reticent to cooperate.
He was also a director of Sain and made it quite clear that the company was not prepared to invest any more studio time in the band, not until record sales were healthier. This was a time when Welsh language record sales had past their peak, to sell LPs was amazing, and most bands would have been happy to sell a records.
To expect Eliffant to sell more than other bands was optimistic, and in reality the band was suffering from a general decline in record buying which was eventually to affect the world wide record industry. This was the cross over period between vinyl and compact discs. The debate between Sain and Eliffant became a little acrimonious, and negotiations had reached stalemate, and so the only answer seemed to be for the band to go it on their own, and start their own record label.
The boys were far from unanimous as to the choice of material for the new record. Geraint was still the only songwriter and much of his recent material was going in a direction that some of the band members were less comfortable with. The songs were becoming less rocky, there were more ballads, and the material called for a greater degree of musicianship.
It Eliffant - Tywyllwch (Vinyl) decided to make a single initially, and see how it sold before recording an album. This was a rocky number with a jazz-funk feel in the intro and bridges, but it was also essentially a pop song.
The two backing tracks were recorded over the weekend of the 11 th and 12 th of June, and the vocals and lead guitar were recorded on June 19 th. Geraint and Gordon mixed it on Thursday June 23rd. The artwork for the record sleeve was done by Douglas Williams. It was printed in black and white to keep costs to a minimum, and records were pressed.
