Best of 2015

We are not one to break traditions, so we all sat down in the beginning of this year with piles of records, cd’s and digital playlists to make our annual Top 10. So many great albums to chose from, and so many good memories. Driving into Germany for our show in Hameln while enjoying some wintersun (not the band) and the new Millencolin album, suprised by how catchy it was and how easily we could sing along. Put us right in a good mood. And of course the glorious return of Good Riddance, including an awesome performance on last year’s Groezrock. We’re not a happy band, but at that moment all five of us stood there smiling. Shortly after we all enjoyed some beers at the Make Do And Mend performance, seriously impressed. The list is endless.

As usual we added up all our individual lists to create that one big Note to Amy yearlist. And just like every year, there’s five guys in our band with different tastes, lots of overlaps, and strange choices. We all enjoy the occasional bit of punkrock obviously, but certainly are no strangers to other genres. Remember our album of the year 2011? (Benighted – Asylum Cave). You can see our individual lists at the bottom – there might be some interesting records in there for some of you.

This year the list contains music that you will find on our iPods and that you’ll find us playing in our van when on our way to shows (not on the way back. Then we stick to Bad Religion or Iron Maiden’s “Life After Death”). For the first time every tho, not a single record shows up on all five individual lists. Good Riddance shows up on four lists (somebody should slap Eelco for not putting it on there), and Wiegedood, Make Do And Mend and Der Weg Einer Freiheit make three lists.

We’ve created a Spotify playlist so you can listen to it as well, and maybe you’ll find some new bands that you haven’t heard of. Kick back, grab a beer, coffee or fruitjuice and put it on. You might need to keep your remote control handy, as you might want to skip over a few bits.

Enjoy!
