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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
