Cool Noise Best of 2006

Filed under: ramblings — @ 11:32 am Comments (3)

For my older sister’s Christmas present this year I made up a CD of some of my favourite tracks of the year. The reason I say ‘some’ is that I have to take someone else’s taste into consideration and can’t indulge myself completely.

Here is the track list:

Phideaux-You And Me Against A World Of Pain
Scaramanga Six – Vesuvius
Modern American Science – Aim Steady Fire
Revolution74 – Send Home All The Rockstars
SUB-ROSA – I’m Right, You’re Dead
OMR – Clean And Tidy
Num – Feathers In My Bed
Lo Ego – Suffered A Loss
Revolution74 – Not That Kind
Seven Years On – Nails
The Distants – Falling Apart
The Ghosts – Hoodoo Voodoo
The Reverse – In A Cage, Under The Ground
The Studiofix – The Latter Years

There are loads of omissions e.g. Pitch Black Dream where I still can’t single out just one track from a wonderful album. I also have broken the rules because it is meant to be one track per band and yet I couldn’t resist putting two Revolution74 songs on – they have impressed me so much.

Lastly, you may see I haven’t mentioned Fell City Girl in this list. Did I really not like them that much? In fact, I included the two Fell City Girl promos (February Snow and Swim) in the parcel as part of the present.


  1. No Karma Pilot?

  2. Not on a song compilation.

    Yes, if it was my 10 favourite albums from the year. If it was my favourite pieces of music then Resonance Association, Karma Pilot, and These Monsters would have been there.

    Of course, as I have suggested before, if you ever do a solo album of songs (like parts of Winter 2005) then I am likely to laud that to the heavens.
