Hilarious indeed. Anyone else catch their appalling cover of The Ruts classic Staring At The Rude Boys? Catch the original here:

Aye. Painful stuff.

I have enjoyed the following and I think they all came out this year but can't be arsed checking -

Earth ~ Hibernaculum

Shellac ~ Excellent Italian Greyhound. The opening 2 songs are still to be topped by any other band and I'm warming to the rest.

UNKLE ~ War Stories

Tinariwen ~ Aman Iman:Water Is Life

Thurston Moore ~ Trees Outside The Academy

The Fall ~ Reformation Post T.L.C.

Les Savy Fav ~ Let's Stay Friends

Murder By Death ~ In Bocca Al Lupo

Nick Cave/Warren Ellis ~ The Assassination Of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford

PJ Harvey ~ White Chalk, great return to form after the dodgy Uh Huh Her.

High On Fire ~ Death Is This Communion

Baroness ~ Red Album (nice one Scott)

There's probably more..

The new Port-Royal album Afraid To Dance is pretty fucking lush. It's in my top ten of the year after just two listens.

Have mainly bought old stuff this year, its cheap. theres lots of it, and much of that is good.

But I have enjoyed 'Untrue' by Burial and 'Joystone' by Jimi Tenor, and I'm sure they came out this year, and 'Kingdom of Fear' by Shitdisco. I have heard odd tunes that are good.

nobody mentioned anything about release dates, so 2005's Edan - Beauty And The Beat is officially the best album I only found out about this year, and he is one of the highlights of my gigging year also.

An excellent album. Primitive Plus is good too, but nowhere near as good as that one. Where did you see him live?

yeah i've never got into primative plus much, but BATB is just so consistently amazing. saw him at ATPminehead in may, with dagha guesting, it was amazing, some of the shit was just played with an acoustic guitar through distortion&delay, he was beat juggling with one hand and rapping into his mic in the other, and during 'rock n roll', dagha had LPs of every single band/album namechecked in the song, and chucked them down one by one as edan ticked 'em off!

Top ten might be something like this:

Alasdair Roberts 'The Amber Gatherers'

Efterklang 'Under Giant Trees' & 'Parades'

Electrelane 'No Shouts, No Calls'

Jeffrey Lewis '12 Crass Songs'

Lisa Knapp 'Wild and Undaunted'

Monkey Swallows the Universe 'The Casket Letters'

Nina Nastasia & Jim White 'You Follow Me'

Paula Frazer & Tarnation 'Now it's Time'

Rachel Unthank & the Winterset 'The Bairns'

Voice of the Seven Woods 'Voice of the Seven Woods'

Of these, the one I keep coming back to is Monkey Swallows the Universe 'The Casket Letters'. Wonderful record.
