Barlow asked me to do my top 5 records of 2011, so here they are:
5. The Lonely Isand – Turtleneck And Chain
Throwing a spanner in the works. I laughed so hard.
4. Chuck Ragan – Covering Ground
I think my all time favourie Chuck song might be on this record.
3. Dave Hause – Resoloutions
Beacuse Dave is an all around top bloke.
2. The Horrible Crowes – Elsie
Me and my thoughts about Brian Fallon are like an aging marriage: He doesn’t half piss me off, but i don’t like the idea of dying alone.
1. Great Cynics – Don’t Need Much
I love Giles, Iona and Bob.
I would also like to give an honorable mention to Helen Chambers, Sam Russo, Jimmy Islip and Chuck Ragan, who did the best Split/EP of the year, it totally rocks.
