It’s the end of a year…
There’s another one coming
Another year has passed and my collection has grown a bit when it comes to non-hardcore records. Especially in the Smiths, Morrissey and Bruce Springsteen department the grow was steady with some great records.
Looking back it has been a bit of dull year when it comes to hardcore. Luckily I had a ton of other cool and uncool stuff to keep my occupied. But my amount of shows visited is at an all time low, only 17 this year. I did however went to some amazing shows, best one was by far was Dag Nasty at Groezrock.
My top 5:
- Dag Nasty @ Groezrock
- The Cure @ Antwerp
- Weezer @ Amsterdam
- Ghost @ Tilburg
- Iron Chic @ Groezrock
When it comes to records my year list looks something like this (in random order):
- Bob Mould – Patch The Sky
- Burn – From The Ashes
- New Moon – Space
- For Pete’s Sake – In Faith and Loyalty
- Red Hare – Lexicon Mist
- Dag nasty – Cold Heart/Wanting Nothing
- Devotion – Headspace Astronaut
- Tender defender – s/t
- Muncie Girls – From Caplan to Belsize
- Descendents – Hyper…
- Freewill – Sun Return
- GLOSS – Trans Day Revenge
- Praise – Leave It All Behind
- Bloc Party – Hymns
- Pixies – Head Carrier
- Krimewatch – demo
- Cutting Through – demo
- Beach Slang – A Loud Bash Of Teenage Feelings
- Fury – Paramount
My favorite picks up of the year are centered around this record. Probably my best pick up ever, but for sure the best pick up of the year. I never imaged I would ever find something like this.
I also added a nice Dag Nasty test press to my collection.
Finally I found this anomaly pretty cool to have.
Curious what 2017 will bring me.
