The marvellous website, Toppermost.co.uk, run by (who I like to think is) my good friend Merric Davidson has documented the most representative, best, favourite ten tracks of various acts…
Here are some of mine: most done very quickly (or I’d never get them done), all done of bands or acts I love, all wrong, of course… Hope you enjoy.
