Last Minute “favorite” releases of 2015. I am old, and spent most of 2016 listening to Taylor Swift’s “1989” – that is until Ryan Adams released his version of “1989”. Life is good. Anyway, in no particular order, a list of records I enjoyed over the last 12 months.
My apathy is immeasurable. Lost part of my vision and a good part of my heart (the latter is more of a metaphysical thingy) and had no desire to search for new music with the same vigor as previous years. I’m sure there was plenty of great whatever out there, but I could barely give a poop. Poop. See what I did there? Here’s some stuff I liked: THE BEVIS FROND – Example 22 STICK IN THE WHEEL – From…

Brothers and sisters, we survived another year on this planet. The best thing I can say about 2015 is that it is behind us. No looking back from here – blue skies ahead.

New to me in 2015 What is new to me in 2015? To start with POOP! This is my first contribution to this fine collection of POOP Lists from many respected and/or otherwise music nerds! I’ve known many POOP contributors for more than 20 years and I’m glad somehow I have now managed to make the ranks! 2015 had some gems in it. It also revealed some gems from recent years as well. This list for me is the best…
