Gruff Rhys' first foray into music was at the age of five, when he wrote an odd number about a train driver contemplating death. Several years later, Rhys formed Super Furry Animals, who got much of their character from his outlandish lyrical slants. After many critically acclaimed singles and full-lengths, Rhys released his solo debut, Yr Atal Genhedlaeth, in 2005. When SFA moved to Rough Trade, the label also picked up Rhys' solo work and released his second album, Candylion, in 2007. A year later, Neon Neon -- a collaborative project with Boom Bip -- released Stainless Style, an electro-pop concept album about auto tycoon John DeLorean. The Terror of Cosmic Loneliness, a duet album with Tony Da Gatorra, followed in 2010. ~ Chris True
