2012 In Music

Recommended Posts

:laughing: To be fair, I'm surprised nobody accused me of being a writer for Rolling Stone, given my obvious classicist rock and roll bias.

Oh plz, almost everyone on SF could write for Rolling Stone, it's not exactly a cutting edge publication. It's well aware its income comes from baby boomers so obvs will cater to oldies.

It's like how NME had its heyday back in Britpop times so only covers excruciatingly 'british' groups.

Good to see friends-of-Songfacts The Asteroids Galaxy Tour on your list (just glad you didn't stop at 40).

If you want to give an old guy a chance, check out Bobby Womack's The Bravest Man In The Universe - the one with the gnarly hand album cover.

I didn't know Asteroid Galaxy Tour were friends of Songfacts, they're great.

And I'll have to check out Bobby Womack's album

The one absence I'm surprised by on your list is Celebration Rock by Japandroids. I'd have thought that they're right up your alley.

That would probably be because I never got the chance to listen to that album. But I will do so soon. I have it, just never got around to it. Though based on your list, it seems I should listen to it soon.
