2012 (in music)

In mid December I was lucky enough to get hold of the limited edition vinyl of the new YEAR OF THE GOAT album 'Angels Necropolis'. The whole package is beautifully put together and very evocative of the band's music. To mark this most excellent purchase, here's a list of a few of my top purchases from 2012 (in no particular order).

Forgive Durden - Razia's Shadow                               (Alternative)

Anberlin - Vital                                                            (Alternative)
Kiss - Monster                                                              (Classic Rock)
Zombina And The Skeletones - That Doll (EP)           (AWESOMENESS!)
Bloody Hammers - Bloody Hammers                          (Classic Rock/Doom)
Lunar Dunes - From Above                                         (Ambient/Psych)
King Bathmat - The Truth Button                                (Progressive)

Manowar - Lords Of Steel                                            (Heavy Metal)
Graveyard - Lights Out                                                 (Classic Rock)
Witchcraft - Legend                                                      (Classic Rock)
Kadaver - Kadaver                                                        (Classic Rock)

Baron - Illegitimate Nephew                                         (Ambient/Indie)

This post has no real purpose (unless anyone who is kind enough to read it, discovers some new sounds because of it!).

2012... in a nutshell.

Hello one and all. Happy holidays from me to you (albeit a bit late!) Well... what can I say about 2012? In terms of creativity it's pretty much died on it's arse. I haven't had a 'good' drawing day in months, and it shows no sign of letting up. I'm hopeful that 2013 will bring about a new view, a renewed love of drawing if you will.... I guess I'll have to wait and see what the new dawn brings.

Here's a chilled out furry thing, smoking a pipe to end the year on!
