Two Thousand And Grime..

2009 has certainly been a half-decent nail in the coffin of "the noughties". You can't fuck with this many good releases.. Why do I get the feeling 2010 is gonna be a stream of piss in just about every way possible?

30 Of The Best

(It's impossible to put this many records in order of preference but the first five are probably right.. Besides I've always been a list-making nerd)

1. Cult Ritual - LP1
2. Raekwon - OB4CLII
3. Propagandhi - Supporting Caste
4. Former Ghosts - Fleurs
5. Punch - Self Titled
6. Method Man And Redman - Blackout II
7. Social Circkle - City Shock
8. Pulling Teeth - Paranoid Delusions
9. Fabolous - Loso's Way
10. Double Dagger - More

11. M.O.P - Foundation
12. Dinosaur Jr - Farm
13. The Rival Mob - Raw Life
14. Pianos Become The Teeth - Old Pride
15. Harm's Way - Reality Approaches
16. Black Diamond Heavies - A Touch Of Someone Else's Class
17. Dear Landlord - Dream Homes
18. The XX - XX
19. Arctic Monkeys - Humbug
20. Pissed Jeans - King Of Jeans

21. The Shitty Limits - Beware The Limits
22. Stupid Party - LP
23. Joe Budden - Padded Room
24. Gun Outfit - Dim Light
25. Marco Polo And Torae - Double Barrel
26. Rise And Fall - Our Circle Is Vicious
27. Buried Inside - Spoils Of Failure
28. Peste Noire - Ballad Cuntre Lo Anemi Francor
29. Manic Street Preachers - Journal For Plague Lovers
30. The Wooden Sky - If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone

I haven't properly listened to the Cloak/Dagger, Hunches or Sonic Youth records yet but they'd probably end up in there somewhere as well.


1. Bonestorm - Self Titled EP
2. Cherbourg - Into The Dark
3. Bon Iver - Blood Bank EP
4. Merchandise - Terminal Jagger Jane's Addiction Boxset
5. Debaser - Rich White Boys
6. Raw Nerve - Teens In Heat
7. Black Teeth - Ghost Town Anthems

Can't think of what else came out this year.


Both the Nomos and Nazi Dust demos killed it.


I really didn't rate the new Slaughterhouse at all.. Fucking letdown. Didn't even bother with the new Kid Harpoon after hearing that terrible single. The new Blacklisted was fucking weird - becoming a grunge band doesn't work at all, though I thought the first track was a banger. Everyone was ranting about the new Royce but I checked it and thought it was wickety-wack.. which means it is.



I can't believe I just typed all that - I'm a loser..
