Thanks so much for all the comments on the “one book per artist” debate. I think I’ve made up my mind now.
We’ll be releasing a few new books in the series in the next couple of weeks:
So keep an eye out for extracts from those, in the next few days.
Also, since you asked, these were my favourite records of last year, in no particular order:
Belle & Sebastian – The Life Pursuit
Pernice Brothers – Live a Little
The Ballet – Mattachine
Various – Blue Skies Up: Welcome to the New Pop Revolution
Various – CD86: 48 Tracks from the Birth of Indie Pop
Alela Diane – The Pirate’s Gospel
Fionn Regan – The End of History
Midlake – The Trials of Van Occupanther
A Sunny Day in Glasgow – Sunniest Day Ever EP
As for 2007, I’m most excited about This Is England, the new film by Shane Meadows.
