Witterings from an old indie kid
So another year over and it was one of the best I can remember but given my memory of late that’s no strong ask. It started strongly in January and never looked back. It was a painstaking task compiling the Top 50 (well 51!) and for the past couple of weeks I have been adding tracks, removing tracks and adding them back in again. Things were getting so tight I had to add the constraint of only including music featured on this blog whether it was a post or a video page which meant my techno/electronica tracks got the heave ho.
If you are interested these would have included Fur Coat and Swart for starters. Also missing is Chris Massey’s excellent remix of the A Certain Ratio track Dirty Boy simply because I forgot I did actually post about it!
Also new this year is that there is no Top 10, 15 or whatever just 51 tracks picked for listening pleasure (or not!) across two mixes and in no order of preference. As for a tracklisting? Well, it’s a return to the days of old so you will have to listen to find out. Part Two will follow next week. Enjoy!
