about

Coq au Vin is the new Welsh trash-rock dance floor filler by outsider pop legend (to be) David Mysterious.

Based on an ill-fated night out in Cardiff's Clwb Ifor Bach, where David's encyclopaedic knowledge of traditional French cookery swiftly extinguished, what could have been, a perfectly adequate night of passion.

The single is accompanied by a sound homage to 18th century sailors' folklore ( Y Cracen ) and a surf instrumental with a Viking backbeat ( Valhalla Surf ). It signals the triumphant return of David Mysterious ahead of his climactic comeback album, Die Auferstehung, due out on north of chepstow records in Winter 2015.

Coq au Vin ydi'r trac newydd Cymraeg gan y gŵr sydd wastad ar gyrion cerddoriaeth David Mysterious.

Wedi ei seilio ar noson allan anffodus yng Nghlwb Ifor Bach, Caerdydd, lle y gwnaeth gwybodaeth anhygoel David o goginio Ffrengig traddodiadol ddiffodd yn sydyn be fuasai wedi gallu bod yn noson hollol gyffredin o angerdd.

Mae'r sengl hefyd yn cynnwys teyrnged sain i chwedlau morwyr o'r ddeunawfed ganrif ( Y Cracen ) a darn offerynnol syrffio gyda churiad cefndir Llychlyniadd ( Valhalla Surf ). Mae'n utgorn sydd yn dynodi ail-ymddangosiad David Mysterious cyn ei albwm dychwelyd, Die Auferstehung, fydd allan ar recordiau north of chepstow adeg Gaeaf 2015.

Track Name: Coq au Vin
Oni allan yn ghlwb un noson dywyll
Mewn dipyn o stat ac yn teimlo twp
Pan welais hogan yn dansio yn y gornel
Oedd hi’n edrych yn ddel ac yn symud yn smwdd
Ond fe ges i sioc pan aeth hi dod ata i
A ddweudodd yn fy’n nhglyst
Swn i licio gael blas a dy
Goc au Vin

Disgynwn ni allan ddrws syth i mewn i dacsi
Heb meddwl am gofyn sut oedd hi wybod
Oni handi yn y cegin doedd dim otch gen i
Oedd hi dal eisio flas a fyn’n
Nghoc au Vin

Cyraeddwn ni y fflat dringo fynu grisha
Suth i mewn i’r gegin i rhoi y popty on
Dechrau paratoi llysaiu ac gig ac win
Oedd o edrych yn wych ac oglio’n well
Ond pan es i yn ol i palour oni weld oedd hi gysgu
Oni gwybod yn suth dim on fi oedd mynd flasu fy’n
Nghoc au Vin

Translation:

I was out in Clwb one dark evening
In a bit of a state and feeling stupid
When I spied a girl dancing in the corner
She was looking pretty and moving smooth
But I had a shock when she came up to me
And whispered in my ear
I’d like to have a taste of your
Coq au Vin

We fell out of the door and into a taxi
Without thinking of asking how she new
I was handy in the kitchen it made no odds to me
She still wanted a taste of my
Coq au Vin

We reached the flat and climbed up the stairs
Went straight to the kitchen to put the oven on
Started preparing vegetables, meat and wine
It looked fantastic and smelt even better
When I returned to the parlour I saw she was sleeping
I knew straight away only I would be tasting my
Coq au Vin
