Keep It Fast’s Top 10 Tracks of 2017

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.

Down I Go – Mortals

Brilliantly self-described as “Drunk Wikipedia Farming” (aka, the kings of concept-core) the Stockholm/Illinois/Toronto trio that is Down I Go still exist as a band. Despite them all living in different countries, the simple matter of distance, time and space isn’t going to stop them from creating music.

The Display Team – Shifts

The Display Team are a sextet of macabre carnival characters, driven by wild, hectic, frenzied energy and are a fiery and exhilarating rush from start to finish. Shifts is their second record (it’s been 7 years since their first, Drones) and proof that the band isn’t dead.

Lizard Hips’ Top 10 Albums of 2015

Another bloody year. It looks like end of year lists are being rattled out now, so best to jump on that bandwagon and rank a load of records I’ve listened to in some sort of order of preference. In all seriousness, it’s been another fantastic year – some proper agonising decisions about what to keep in and what to leave out. It hasn’t been easy let me tell you. Read on….

Down I Go – You’re Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You

Those familiar with Down I Go, will know that a Kickstarter campaign was put together by fellow/rival super-fan, Halldór Heiðar Bjarnason, who invited them out to his Icelandic fljótstunga travel farm to record a new album. You’re Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You is the warped fruit of their labours and takes the weird metal-hardcore-jazz-harmony-happy-screaming mutation of Down I Go’s sound and amplifies it to the heavens…

This Is New Album-core with Down I Go

HUGE NEWS. Down I Go are back. Well, they’re going to record an album at least, which is excellent. For those unfamiliar, Down I Go made/make concept albums (dinosaurs, disasters, robots, tyrants and gods) and are generally brilliant. They split up a few years back due to band members all living in different countries.
