2018 – Get Your Shirt

July 9th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2018 – Get Your Shirt · Music

As far as music was concerned 2018 was many things: it was even better than 2017, it was a year for female artists and it was a year for comebacks.

All Killer – Juju (1981)

July 6th, 2019 · Comments Off on All Killer – Juju (1981) · Music

Juju by Siouxsie & the Banshees is one of the few albums that I can remember buying on the day of release. I can even remember where I bought it – the WH Smiths at London Bridge station on the way home from work. To be fair though, I only realised afterwards that it was […]

2017 – Miami

July 5th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2017 – Miami · Music

When I decided to write about one track from every year of my life I don’t think I realised how bloody old I am – it turned out to be a bit of an epic chore, but the end is in sight now. By that I mean that I am nearly caught up, not that […]

2016 – Hardwired

July 4th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2016 – Hardwired · Music

It continues to pleasantly surprise me how as we get further from the golden age of the 70’s and I continue to get more decrepit, there seems to be more new music I like rather than less. Admittedly, little of what is in the singles charts does much for me, but long-established artists continued to […]

2015 – Uptown Funk

July 2nd, 2019 · Comments Off on 2015 – Uptown Funk · Music

When I first decided to put together a playlist with one track from each year I have been around I expected that I would agonise over what to include in the years of the late 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and struggle to find anything new in the 21st Century, having lost touch a bit with […]

2014 – Little Monster

July 1st, 2019 · Comments Off on 2014 – Little Monster · Music

Another year where I enjoyed the new music. Admitttedly most of the new music I was listening to and enjoying was from artists that had been going for quite a while, or even a long while.

2013 – Mystery Man

June 13th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2013 – Mystery Man · Music

At some point in the 2000’s I just stopped buying CDs. This is a big deal for me, having over-spent on music for as long as I can remember. The thing is, all my existing CDs are only played through the computer, having been ripped ages ago. New music I just stream. I pay the […]

2012 – Spitfire

June 8th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2012 – Spitfire · Music

This was the year I turned 50, when I might have been expected to retreat into listening to back catalogue and leave new music to the youngsters. I would have been happy to do that, but instead there was some excellent new music coming out that was right up my street, although a lot of […]

2007 – Thou Shalt Always Kill

April 7th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2007 – Thou Shalt Always Kill · Music

Either not a lot happened in music in 2007 or I just can’t remember it. There were only a couple of albums released in the year that registered much with me and very few singles. Looking at the list of songs from the year on Wikipedia it seems like half the singles were by somebody-I-don’t-know […]

Hall of Fame

April 12th, 2017 · Comments Off on Hall of Fame · Music

I have been watching some Youtube clips of Yes getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which is a long overdue accolade for them, and a great shame it had to wait until after Chris Squire died. It is worth doing a search because there is plenty in there for the fans, […]
