Amid the murky gloom of the grisly London winter, I warm myself by raking through the dying embers of the musical year just gone.
I love pecking like a vulture on the carcass of year-end lists, yanking out the gems I missed like so many scraps of bloody intestine .
Of course that’s in the very limited time I have left after doing my best to suck every last drop of pleasure from Trap Them’s Darker Handcraft and the Balaclava record.
I am seriously addicted. Darker Handcraft is utterly narcotic in its intensity: blissed out on buzzsaw guitar.
Anyway. On my (metaphorical) turntable this week are Vreid, The KLF, Snares, YOB and Tombs.
