2013 list

Okay, I'm glad to see the back of 2013 for many personal reasons. That said, it was an awesome year for music. This list was done at the top of my head so I've probably missed loads out. For anyone who cares, here we go...
Best releases.
Plenty of superb i said I've probably missed some out but here are some of the things that rocked my turntable and ipod the most...
Crusades-Perhaps you pass this judgement…LP (No Idea)
Uncle Acid-Mind control LP (Rise above)
Rival mob-Mob mentality LP (Revelation)
Violent reaction-city streets LP (Painkiller)
Hounds of hate-s/t LP (Painkiller)
Age of Taurus-Tortured souls of desperate times LP (Rise above)
Septic tank-the slaughter 7” (Rise above)

Best gigs
As you can tell most of the gigs were local (I live about 30 miles from Manchester). No gigs on foreign soil last year...maybe this year?
Grand Magus-Manchester (Feb)
Dinosaur Jr –Manchester (Feb)
Violent reaction/Hounds of hate-Manchester (July)
Rival mob/Mind eraser-London (Oct)
Black Sabbath/Uncle acid-Manchester (Dec)

Best pick ups
Not a great year for ultra rare pick up's this year. I had such a great 2012 for that, it's almost like I had a quiet 2013 because of it, like my luck could only stretch so far. Anyway here's my favourite things that I got. Hopefully 2014 will be the year of some big scores.
Larm-orginal LPs.
No tolerance-No tolerance, no remorse 7” Test press
Chain of strength-The one thing…LP Green

Integrity test presses. 
Brotherhood-No tolerance..7" Blue

Yeah, it got played enough so it deserves to be on there. They were ace live as well (although not as great as VR on the same show).
