Ginge Knievil’s 2017 Top of the Pops

Spread the love

Let the arguments commence as I present my end of year lists for 2017. This ain’t no Smash Hits Poll Winners Party and it features the albums, singles and live shows that have stood out in my addled punk rock brain over the past 12 months.

It’s been an honour and privilege to scribe for Mass Movement since September. Roll on 2018 for more of the same. You know where to send your killer punk / garage / glam / sleaze / rock ‘n’ roll releases for review!

Have a tidy Christmas.
