Hear Super Furry Animals’ Previously Unreleased First Song, Featuring Rhys Ifans On Vocals

Art-damaged Welsh pop-rockers Super Furry Animals have released the first song they ever recorded. Tracked way back in 1993, it’s called “Of No Fixed Identity,” and it features actor Rhys Ifans (who you may have seen in such films as Notting Hill, the Harry Potter series, and Spiderman: No Way Home) on lead vocals rather than eventual SFA singer Gruff Rhys.

Super Furry Animals fans have limited time to hear first-ever song recorded with Rhys Ifans in 1993

Super Furry Animals have shared a previously unreleased track, “Of No Fixed Identity”, for the first time in almost 30 years. The first song ever recorded by the Welsh band, featuring actor Rhys Ifans on vocal duties, was surprise-released to Bandcamp for a limited time.“Never revisited after recording, and put to tape at the same time as an early version of the headline-making, 1996 single, ‘The Man Don’t Give A F*ck’, the track features numerous trademarks familiar to Furry fans around the world,” a press release said.“Combining West-Coast harmony-rich psychedelia, garage rock and swathes of synths, Ifans puts in a...

Ho-ho-ho, folks! The Empire Podcast team may be on a Christmas break, but that hasn't stopped the elves in our workshop from bringing you a couple of last blasts of podcast goodness just (about) in time for the big day. This week's absolutely-not-official-no-sir episode of the Empire Podcast sees Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Ben Travis don virtual terrible jumpers for a bumper edition of festive film-related fun. First, they answer a bunch of listener questions about Christmas movies, then they discuss a ton of movie news. And, surprisingly, there's much to talk about, including trailers galore and the box office of Spider-Man: No Way Home, and its implications for the future of film.

‘The King’s Man’s Rhys Ifans and Djimon Hounsou on Matthew Vaughn and Why Filming the Big Rasputin Fight was a “World of Pain”

With director Matthew Vaughn’s The King’s Man now playing in theaters, I recently got to speak with Djimon Hounsou and Rhys Ifans about making the Kingsman prequel. As you’ve seen in the trailers, The King’s Man is set against the backdrop of WWI and uses real history to show how the independent intelligence agency came into existence. Loaded with the kind of action you’d expect from Matthew Vaughn, a great cast, and a number of surprises you won’t see coming, I thought The King’s Man was extremely well done and can’t wait to see the next installment. The King’s Man also stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Harris Dickinson, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. The King’s Man is based on the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, with story by Vaughn and screenplay by Vaughn & Karl Gajdusek.
