More hitters from on form labels Livity Sound and Whities again in 2018. Rekids also released a heap of bangers.
Some highlights from some records I picked up in this playlist:

Favourite YouTube discovery of the year is David Portnoy’s daily Pizza Reviews around NYC and the East Coast. One bite, everybody knows the rules.

These reviews were previously uploaded on the Barstool Sports account. Bill Burrs included:

Stand Up highlight was probably Bert Kreischer Secret Time – tempted to go see him when he comes to Auckland in June.

Favourite podcast is still Your …

2018 was fucking dark man. Don’t know if it’s me getting older, the prevailing authoritarian fascist leanings of international politics, or the increasing rate of ecological collapse, but I found it hard to keep a spring in my step this year.
Spending time with my friends and family was good, drinking helps obviously, and of course music, which goes well with these. I couldn’t get hold of nearly as much music as I wanted this year, but I think I’ve increasingly nailed the process of finding …

It’s been a while between baths, I’ve been busy, easily distracted and as ever perennially slack. Time to get off the horse and back on the donkey… semi regular posts may resume alongside a ton of other partly thought out and realised projects.
To whit a listicle, cause its easy fun

Breakfast on the deck on my days off, bacon and eggs, RNZ, cats hanging out, a stunning view of the estuary
The regular don’t go back going back to acid house, new beat, late 80’s dance (now classics), bleep and noise

Some sites start their best of’s in November. Some like to leave it to January. Mick, to his credit, came through with some picks in January. I’m fitting to top them all by finally revealing some of my favourite records.

Makes a change from Peking Duk I suppose

Soon afterward, they were joined by Peter Stampfel and Steve Weber of the Holy Modal Rounders. Kupferberg named the band from a euphemism for fuck used in Norman Mailer‘s novel The Naked and the Dead.
The band is known for its comedic, even …
