Despite my disgust at not being able to download Chuck D’s No Meaning No, this, Newport (Ymerodraeth State of Mind), makes me feel a lot better. A group production by a bunch of friends (though they’re not from Newport),it makes me proud to be British. Come along now, sing along with me:
On the dance floor raving, pack of 16 Bensons
Someone fighting bouncers, turns out it’s Gavin Henson!
Newport, twinned with Guangxi Province in China
There’s no province finer
According to the press Newport State of Mind is one of them there ‘internet sensations’, with over 1 million views on YouTube and climbing. Then again, judging by the number of my mates who’ve sent it to me, and the number of times I’ve seen it, it’s probably only been watched by about 100 people.
