Bob Vylan led the field right up to the last two nominations, closely followed by Bob Dylan! There are artists here you won’t find on any other End of Year lists. New and old side by side. In the Top 20 more than half the acts are female or include female members. Enjoy.”

1. ‘I Am Moron’ by THE LOVELY EGGS (Lancaster, UK)
“LTW favourites The Lovely Eggs return on top form with album number six. Psych
punk at its height, again produced by Flaming Lips magician David Fridmann.”

2. ‘We Live Here’ by BOB VYLAN
A groundbreaking album that slammed right into 2020 full of rage, anger and messages

3. ‘A National Disgrace’ by DEAD SHEERAN
“Dead Sheeran is the dogs bollocks. The one album which makes you laugh at the impotence of the collective rage and feeling of desperation in the UK in 2020. He doesn’t have answers, he doesn’t even know the fuckin’ question. But he is some kind of accidental genius and a vital antidote to the misery of 2020.”LTW

An absolute masterclass of songwriting once again.”

5. ‘Made Of Rain’ by THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS

back to the glory days. No One is just a stunning piece of songwriting.”

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS – Self-Titled Debut Longplayer Turns 40 Today…

7 March 2020

Today 40 years ago, on 7 March 1980, London’s legendary new wave/post punk
band THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS, led by singer/songwriter Richard Butler released
their self-titled debut LP. The band broke up in 1992, but returned in 2000 and
are still going strong. Their new, 8ht album called ‘MADE OF RAIN’ will hit the
streets on May 1. More info here. .

AllMusic wrote: “Emerging from the incipient post-punk London scene with a healthy
fascination for late-’70s Bowie (and in turn, for his own attraction to Krautrock), the
then-sextet kicked up a slightly monochromatic but still attractive storm on their debut.
Richard Butler’s Thin-White-Duke-after-smoking vocal rasp has a surprising appeal,
serving up a wry, slightly detached series of lyrics on life.”
