Best Of Jan 2012 - News & Featured ReleasesView Our Best Of Jan 2012 Chart

A few monstrous albums for us, in the traditionally quiet month of January.  But none quite so monstrous as 'A Flash Flood Of Colour' from Enter Shikari, who played a superb album release show for us at The Hippodrome.  Tribes was our second biggest album of the month and that also tied in with a release show, this time at New Slang.  Albums from very Banquet-y bands Pulled Apart By Horses and The Maccabees received some high budget videos and there was plenty more, as chose by the Banquet boys and girls below!

Not sure if we'll have as many people in one crazy show in the rest of 2012 as we did at Enter Shikari.  The boys from Everything Sucks captured the day well.  Tribes at New Slang was a biggie, but we also had some incredible gigs from La Dispute, Tall Ships and Afficionado.
