Thread Contributor: MuttleySubVersion's End Of Year Charts - Thanks MetaSpandex and Stattandroid.

SubVersion End Of Year Chart from Muttley (http://www.focisleft.bandcamp.com / http://www.twitter.com/MuttleySV, http://www.kapsil.net/muttley, http://www.facebook.com/muttley.subversion.3, http://www.subvertcentral.blogspot.co.uk, http://www.mixcloud.com, http://www.soundcloud.com/subversion-2, http://www.nightshiftmag.co.uk writing, http://www.fluid-radio.co.uk writing).

A lot can happen in a year...I found love within myself. I released albums with good reviews. I bought lots of mind-scultping records. I changed my accommodation with help of the local mental health services. And I realised, all along the way, that I didn't have to go anywhere - the party moves with the indivisual.


01. Favourite track: Bjork - Stonemilker. Run close by Tamaryn - Sugar Fix, Little Red - The Huntsman, Kid Moxie - Mysteries Of Love (feat. Angelo Badalementi), and Marina & The Diamonds - Gold.

02. My album of the year is Bjork - Vulnicura, followed by Bat For Lashes - Sexwitch, then Kid Moxie - 1888, then Tamaryn - Cranekiss. Borden - Music For Amplified Keyboard Instruments, Marina Diamandis - Froot. Of my own solo LPs, it's either Nothing, Early Riser, What I Think, or LUV.

03. Favourite label: Low Point. Bought their entire discography (30 + digital releases) on Bandcamp this Autumn. Kyle Bobby Dunn, Gareth Hardwick, Lviv, P Jorgesen, Ex-Easter Island Head, Apalusa. So many more. Absolute goldmine catalog if you love minimalist ambient and drone.

04. Favourite mixtape: Foci's Left - Any And All Things - Live @ GTI, Sep 26th 2015 (Live improvised mixset, first electronics gig conscious).

05. Favourite book: Emotioanal Intelligence And Understanding Emotional Intelligence: D. Goleman, pbk (1995).


06. Favourite gig: Gig of zee year I went to Friday 18th December, 10 months on:

After the Thought begins our evening with a warm and enveloping techno cheer that doesn't prepare the audience for what's to come. In the best way of course, because Gappy Tooth never disappoint in terms of stylistic diversity and act quality control. Matt Chapman-Jones, who is After The Thought, uses a Launch software technique that he's honed to a fine ambiental art since Midwinter Dronefest this time last year.

Utilising sparing guitar in reverb clusters with a different way with a Sigur Ros sample, cryptically it sets the tone for The August List, a husband and wife team I've never seen live before. Their demo of the month in Nightshiftmag.com 2012 impressed me, but now their are extra, gentile layers to the multi-tracked sound, taking the Lawrence vibe Matt had earlier and injecting auto harp, steely guitar chops spanning decades of folk arrangements and an intergender icy vocal call and response. Go see them - they're glad and very good.

Zurich could be a loose cannon in print, a glorious take on New Order speech styling s and Blue Monday catapulted into oblivion. Borne from the ashes of local Oxford band The Scholars, they're like the best combination of two of my fave post punk groups: The Horrors and lesser known rockers Glint from the United States. Much of their themes are loosely piloted - driven by raucous noise, and makes their and headline act Balloon Ascents appearance well worth the wait.

There's a lot of punches pulled by a 4-strong bunch of youths equally to the previous guitar storm, but Balloon Ascents tone down the heat inside the candle and hold the Radio head light strongly, with a clutch of new songs, most from 'Dont Look Down', making Nightshiftmag.com Top 25 in 2015. Their set is the perfect send off to Gappy Tooth s year in gigging, and mature lyrics tread the band to places where the instruments tell them that they're wrong. Gig of the year? For me personally, by a mile.

- besides my first live audience piano consciously at the James Street Tavern, Cowley and first live audience keyboard and electronics consciously at The Wheatsheaf, High St, Oxford, experiences. Bjork at Wilderness Festival, of course, Brazieres Park.

08. Favourite food (or Snax): I'll break this up into 3: meal, curry meal and DE drink. Meal was the one I had today at Hackett's Bar, Witney. High Street, who had a saxophonist seemingly using a program to play along to like Bloom for iPhone. It was Chicken & Ham Hock Pie w/ peppered creamy mash, steamed veg (broccoli, carrots). Close runner up on the meal to the cruise Lobster w/ butter Sauce, asparagus and wild mushroom soup.

Curry meal was on the cruise, gotta say, despite wonderrful Mutton Kodai, Chicken Balti and Korma curries from my favourite land restaurant, The First Floor Cowley, and Spiced Monkfish at La Cucina Cowley. Sindhu restaurant, Ventura ship. Soft shell crab (all edible) from the head chef with sauces and appetisers. But the real win came in the 3 course main meal after that: a sequence of rich korma, Lamb Rogan Josh and Tandoori Salmon Tofu, w/ a choice of high standard marshmellow cake or chocolate Mega Profiterole. Included rice, sundries and Tarka Dhal. The main course was Atil Kochar's Big Plate.

DE drink would be Bavaria Lager, or Lager Shandy, from Holland. You can buy it in stores like Morrisons, ASDA (we have these in Carterton, Oxon - ASDA just opened).

09. Favourite guilty pleasure: Blogging

10. Favourite random moment: finding love (in a hopeful place week 22nd Feb ending) randomly, for the first time. The real kind of love, not the digital maesltrom I am sludgily used to. Hats off to a lovely lady for helping me heal from the time I was without feeling.

Thanks MetaSpandex and Stattandroid.

I'll just do a post at the lead-out of the long (possibly?) set of lists.
Loadsalists from elsewhere.

All for now. Need a chance to recap. Ah and final female album that's been on my mind a lot recently and what I'm listening to righr now: "1888" by Kid Moxie. Beautiful person who might be signing my copy through UNDO records distribution.

Still preparing my lists this year (2016). An early track of the year for the list is Tremble - Trouble feat. Shady Novelle MC.

Realized I haven't posted anything list-like, shame on me. Have to admit, I liked that Jamie X album "In Colour". Unfortunately, I am quite busy these days with non-music related affairs, so wasn't much able to digest 2015's music, let alone 2016 Icon_sad
