Well, the time has come and what a year it has been! I wish I had more money this year to spend on records, because there was a bunch of stuff I missed out on. Maybe next year....
Anyway, I've included a few reissues (of course) this year, 1 EP (fuckin' L.A. Drugz!!) and I believe 3 others were actually released last year, but I'll leave that up to you to figure out. It doesn't really matter anyway, does it? Well, yeah it does, but who gives a shit because all these records are all worthy of seeking out. Oh, also I am including The Cheap Cassettes - "All Anxious, All The Time" even though it wasn't officially released on wax. It's so freakin' great, how could I not include it. So, that one is the 'Bonus Fave' of the year!
