Best of 2014

If you're not aware, I also do some stuff over at In Bed With Maradona. There's some cross-over, inevitably, but any stuff I like that's... shall we say 'not exactly radio-friendly' tends to end up there.
Anyway, as part of that, the editor said a few weeks ago, 'why not make a playlist of your 50 favourite tracks of the year?' So I did. On Spotify. It's not in any particular order - not a chart or anything.
It's here, in this link. Go listen at your leisure.

The thing is, however, that not everything I wanted to put on it lives on Spotify. So here are the things that should be on that list but aren't.

Curxes - Valkyrie

Muslimgauze - 100 Great Turks

Shitwife - Golf GTi

Yeah Yeah Noh - She Pulls The Petal From The Flower

Shift Work - Scaled To Fit

Flies On You - Katie Hopkins In Human Form
(caution: video contains Katie Hopkins)

and the best track released this year

Dayglo Maradona - Rock Section

Julian Cope's debut novel One Three One was the literary event of the year and the hero thereof, Rock Section, had a number of hits in the 1980s. So he and collaborators made one of them and put it out on bandcamp. And, predictably, it's bloody marvellous.

Now you're all up to date.
Happy new year, y'all.
