End of Year Charts Fail

being mental takes up more time than I expected, so I’m afraid I’m totally failed to produce an end of year chart rundown.

Or much else, lately.

But I should be done with all the trick cyclist stuff in a few weeks and I’ll come bouncing back as full of shit as ever.

So anyway, I did compile a Top 20 of the year. Not a vintage year, and my top 10 especially is a bit predictable. But still plenty of goodies to be had.

Seems like a safe choice, my Number One, but it really is a cracking album

1 Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Dig Lazarus Dig

2 Los Campesinos Hold On Now Youngster

3 Mogwai The Hawk Is Howling

4 The Bug London Zoo

5 Earth The Bees Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull

6 Night Marchers See You In Magic

7 Boredoms Super Roots 9

8 Atmosphere When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold

9 Adem Takes

10 Nurse With Wound Huffin Rag Blues

11 Those Dancing Days In Our Space Hero Suits

12 Shackleton & Appleblim Soundboy’s Gravestone Gets Desecrated By Vandals

13 Eli Paperboy Reed Roll With You

14 Melvins Nude With Boots

15 Fucked Up Chemistry Of Common Life

16 Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir 10,000

17 Shit & Shine Kiss Mich Mein Leibe

18 Bookhouse Boys Bookhouse Boys

19 Evangelista Hello Voyager

20 Lykke Li Youth Novels

So there you go. Might have more to say over Xmas if I get to relax.

Proper Hosting. Finally

After endless faffing, re-faffing and a bit of shouting, I’ve now signed up for a paid-for hosting thingy with Mediafire, which should mean downloads that are permanently available and ad-free.

So I’ll start uploading mixes ASAP. I won’t bother with individual tracks so if there’s anything particular you’re missing, drop me a line.

And now that’s sorted – starting on Friday, it’s my 2008 Top 20 Albums of The Year. And what a year it’s been.
