This psychedelic rock man is inventive, adorable, and green!
Welsh musician Cian Ciaran, 37, recently transformed a 200-ft wind turbine into an intimate stage. On Wednesday, the Super Furry Animals’ keyboardist and vocalist performed a 40-minute set from his newest solo album “They Are Nothing Without Us” atop a turbine in Swaffham, Norfolk as a means of protest against the United Kingdom’s plans for developing new nuclear power stations. The inventive platform served as a symbol for clean, renewable energy, something that Ciaran feels the Welsh government should be focusing on rather than atomic power. “There is evidence here today that we have the technology to combat climate change,” Ciaran told BBC, “and we don’t need the current government to be taking us down this route.”
The gig was the first live performance of Ciaran’s sophomore solo album which released this week. Packed with fiery lyrics, powerful melodies, and crisp guitar riffs, the album’s music is successfully complemented by the unique, lofty stage. Ciaran’s performance definitely turned up the volume for his cause.
