What are your personal best and worst musical memories of the last twelve months?

I've not purchased that many records that have actually been released this year, but I've discovered lots and bought several in 'hindsight'.

Kikagaku Moyo played a great gig in Drum, in the Summer and I bought their 2016 album 'House In The Tall Grass' album.

BTW They were supported by our very own Earthling Fred and his excellent, wigged out - and slightly dark and haunted Earthling Society.

Jane Weaver also played a cracking gig, at the same venue - and i picked up her new 2017 'Modern Kosmology' album.

'Assault 2' by Scissorgun. Really flipping' good!!

I've also seen top gigs by (in no particular order) Heliocentrics, Gorillaz, Tony Allen, Pictish Trail, Camille O'Sulivan and Adam Ant.

On the psych festival circuit, where i've been keeping myself occupied most Summer weekends, i must also report bands of note; Zofff, The Frankleys, Beastfish, Deltanaut, Magic Bus, Doozer McDooze and Strange Folk. All of these bands, whilst not as well known as those above are well worth investigating, imo. I've bought or swapped CDs by many of them.

As a player of no fixed band, I've had the great honour to have jammed with some utter crackers, too. I must give heads up to Silver Trees, Monkeytrial, vert:x, Shankara Andy Bole, and Mark Robson.

Good records (not necessarily made in 2017) were also bought by Tony Allen, Heliocentrics, Hawkwind, T.REX, Bjork...

I've probably forgotten and omitted a few, so might return and edit this post. What have been your highlights?
