Side Music Magazine asked me to pic my fave gigs, single, album,
venue etc of 2017. Only I got a bit over excited and did it wrong. And
now B Side is no more. But my list is...
"You're gonna wake up one morning and KNOW what
side of the bed you've been lying on..."
Seeing as it seems to be 'the thing' to make lists at this time of
year, here are mine compiled with little thought and even less order.
