Happy New Year

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:

Songs in the Key of Life

Use Your Illusion

Court and Spark

Loveless (ahem)

Notorious Byrd Brothers

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.
