Congratulations to RATM

With great apologies to my cousin's 18-year-old son who was backing Joe from the X Factor... damn good news regarding Rage Against the Machine's Xmas number 1. And one in the eye for the cynical wallet-hoarders who have pretty much destroyed chart pop (which wasn't in that good a condition in the first place, it has to be said, although in general the music scene is probably as good as it's ever been - a lot of good stuff around this year, and indeed every year.)

I'll certainly be going to Rage's free UK concert next year.

Would you care to elucidate on 2009's good musical stuff iyho? I am deprived from exposure to all and any new musics and could do with a primer to broaden one's mp3playa palate.

The only quality recent newmusics i came across in the year were the Portishead album, a couple of Silvery tracks, Knifeworld's Buried Alive (Tales of Crushing Defeat & Keith John Adams' Personal Songs, although some of these could well have been released the previous year.
