Brighton Music Blog 2017 Top 25 – numbers 25-11

Making end of year lists is tough, especially for us. No, hear us out – this isn’t just some sob story. Most of the bands we write about are just starting out, so haven’t had albums out yet – should they be lower down the list or even omitted because they haven’t put out a long player? And conversely what about the bands who have released an album – surely they shouldn’t be higher in the list by default. And what about the more established bands – should we be including them at the expense of smaller bands? And how are we going to get around the fact that bands with more recent release or live dates are nearer the front of our mind than those who put records out at the start of the year? It’s a metaphorical minefield, so our list is rather arbitrary. It could easily have been twice as long, and as usual we’ve gone for bands rather than tracks or albums to get around it. Here’s numbers 25 through to 11:

25 : Lucky Soul

24 : Normanton Street

23 : Other States

22 : Prince Vaseline

21 : Tigercub

20 : The Hundredth Anniversary

19 : The New Faith

18 : Knightstown

17 : Clever Thing

16 : Wax Machine

15 : The Delta Bell

14 : Black Honey

13 : The Fiction Aisle / Black Bunny

12 : British Sea Power

11 : The Go! Team
