Hello Hello Hello!
That was the second last episode of the year and its time for reviews, tops and other summary-type-of-bullshit. I?m a nerd that way! I like doing lists and tops of my favorite releases in the end of the year.
Since I started doing this show 5 years ago, always last two episodes of the year were Best Of the Year Vancouver Edition and overall Best Of The Year episode. I feel that?s it?s important to have a separate show just for local releases, because all those local scenes around the world are the basis of the overall punk rock scene on this planet. And it?s so easy to celebrate local scene in Vancouver, because we have such a strong and diverse scene in this city.
Alright, enought bullshit! Here?s the episode. There are three blocks of songs from my favorite local releases of the year and in the end of the episode I played hits from my three favorite local releases of the year. Success!
