We’ve already talked about my top 10 albums of the year, so let’s focus on the top 10 songs of the year. All guaranteed to be absolute bangers, if not, I’ll send Tiger Crew round your house to have a word. (YEEEEEAAAHHHHH) Enjoy.
Lizard Hips – Top 10 albums of 2017
My top 2 will not surprise some people and it’s mostly business as usual. Some returning bands and truly outstanding work all round from nearly everyone that’s released an album this year that I’ve enjoyed. Even albums that didn’t make the top ten (sorry Pissed Jeans, you’re in at 11…) were stonking great. Enjoy.
Christian Fitness – Slap Bass Hunks
Staring at the cover of Slap Bass Hunks, (the fourth album from the ever-prolific Christian Fitness, aka, Andy Falkous) I’m convinced that it’s some kind of ‘Black Mirror’ vision of the future, where the uprising happens and we succumb to our great bee overlords.
Ampwrecked 12: New Music For Your Ears
On Ampwrecked tonight, presenting the following bands doing all the hits, all the time: Mutoid Man, Le Galaxie, Brad Pot, Christian Fitness, ’68, The St. Pierre Snake Invasion, HCBP and Gouge Away. Enjoy mortals, enjoy.
Guest Post: Jack Murray’s Top 10 albums of 2016
Guest post! It’s nearly the end of the year, so we asked Jack Murray gives us a rundown of his top 10 albums of 2016. From Pat Sharpe and the Turbo Hand Shandies, through to Egg Sandwich Overkill and the new album from The Outhere Brothers – he’ll be counting down the hits of this year. Boom, boom, boom – get on it son.
Lizard Hips’ Top 10 Albums of 2016
I’m sure in many, many, MANY years, 2016 will be studied as the “what the hell happened in THAT year?” as a history module. 2017 has got to be better, right? Thankfully, there was some good music this year, amongst all the badness (Ken McCray dying was a total bummer and you know, the other stuff) so, what better way than countdown my top 10 albums of 2016.
Christian Fitness – This Taco Is Not Correct
Those familiar with Falco’s Christian Fitness project (one-man band) will notice the amount of ‘beef’ that’s been siphoned into This Taco Is Not Correct – (and I mean beef in the sense of SOUND and not the meat product, although we are talking tacos here so…maybe it’s both?)
Ampwrecked: New Tracks For Your Ears #8
On Ampwrecked – Wormrot bring the grind, Terrible Love show a false flag, a party sofa with Prophets of Rage, biscuit beards from Frau Pouch, amateur happiness from Christian Fitness, a calming storm from Truckfighters, Holy Gold find gravity and Earth Moves visit a house of flowers.
Guest post: Jack Murray’s Top 10 Albums of 2015
Professional fruit-down-a-hole chucker (self-proclaimed), Evil Haircut (aka ‘Pumple’) and soon to be possible drummer of Top Fun (Top Gun tribute band), Jack Murray returns to our screens (this website) with his top 10 albums of 2015. Are you ready to party with the best of them?
Christian Fitness – Love Letters In The Age Of Steam
“Unauthorised copying, hiring, lending, public performances and broadcasting of this recording is predictable and disappointing” reads the message scrawled on the back of the second Christian Fitness album, Love Letters In The Age Of Steam. God bless you, Falco. If you don’t know (and why not, you complete flannel) this is the second ‘one-man band’ outing for Andy Falkous, peddling more of his acidic wit and coarse riffs into your ears.
