Track of the year - French press- rolling blackouts cf ...what a song and it stands above a lot of stiff competition
Album - adios senor pussycat... beautiful piece of work crafted with love, conviction and quality from all involved and not just Mick. Brutslism by idols runs close.. very close...great album. Third runner up would be Pete perrett...stirring stuff
Gig - tough to call as usual as I've done a few again... rolling blackouts are outstanding live and probably just nip it. The brudenell gig was fantastic. Whitney at the same venue were mesmerising and I could have watched them all night. The Michael head album launch at Parr st was a triumph... young pup Derry band touts were just like I hoped in Manchester and if you haven't seen idols yet then you're missing out... saw them twice and it's summat else
Upcoming band - shame.. tick all the boxes I like
Fight of the year - probably degale v jack
Book - a crafty cigarette.... very easy quick read but just reminded me so much of my youth and everything the jam meant to me
Film - only seen a couple I think... had to check on the film section here... seems I've seen two and kajaki was the best of those.
Tv - Ozark
Clothing - pretty green button up trench coat in navy... sharp as fuck...and I've actually bought two nice boating blazers this year.. one from adaptor clothing in a brown pin stripe and one from jump the gun in blue ..also sharp as fuck without looking like a mod if that makes sense... subtle mod look!
Life event - meeting my girlfriend ...after trying a few...shes just mint. A lady, a true lady, seems genuinely lovely and so far me and her are deliriously happy with each other... I'm made up
Next year I'm just hoping for more of the same...steady carry on and keep on loving life... travel , love, music and friends
Biggest thing I'm hoping for is Leeds to get it's first world boxing champion... Selby is great but I'm hoping if we can get him to elland road josh can just get the verdict.
Oh yeah and Nicola Adams could get a title and im thinking Jack bateson is the one to watch (along with Josh Kelly and Conor benn)
