After a few false starts the engine has finally coughed into life, there’s gas in the car and those people down the hall most certainly know who you are. So, hop on board and let’s see where we end up on this Highway of Hits, this Boulevard of Broken Dreams.
Loosen those waistbands and if it’s your thing settle down with a bottle of Jack, a spliff the size of Gary’s salsiccia, a sharp pencil and several sheets of paper. If that’s not your thing then just make yourself a nice cup of herbal tea, make sure the curtains are tightly shut, forget about last night’s office party (nobody will remember, just keep saying nobody will remember) and try and remember what’s got you excited this year (Moose, remember your keyword is restraint)
We already know the Top 3 Albums of The Year (Lana, Bruce and Michael, duh) but c’mon the whole point of this exercise is to discover new lands, to boldly go where nobody has boldly gone boldly before and to wonder if Duco1 actually exists or is he just Danny Baker havin’ a right laugh.
Right, some rules. You are allowed a maximum of 20 nominations. Be careful (and I am looking at Junior Wells here) points are awarded strictly in the order you post ie the first album gets 20 points, the second 19 and so on. If like me you are struggling to think of twenty new albums you actually like then just list however many you can muster. It would be helpful if you can put Artist first followed by Name of Album as frankly “I Love A Teenage Goose – Reno Freakout” means little to me. Nominations open Right Here, Right Now and close at midnight 31st December. Results will be published sometime in January depending on how many people have actually voted and how long my Hogmanay Hangover takes to subside.
Angular banjos always sound good to me and would those lovely Mods keep this somewhere near the top of the page, pretty please?
