Panic & Carousels

The Panic & Carousels column for Narc Magazine was supposed to be regular – monthly, even – but by the end of 2015 it was dead in the water. Life, eh?

Panic & Carousels Narc Mix - Feb 2016

Anyway, all being well it should get back to at least  being fairly regular this year, and kicks off 2016 with a look back at 2015. You can take a look here. There’s reviews – or mentions, at least – for Workin Man Noise Unit, Early Mammal, Laura Cannell, Karen Gwyer, Kemper Norton, Supernormal and Tor Ist Das?, Woven Skull and The Cesarians, Shape Worship, Coil, This Heat, Harmonia. Mogwai, The Bug, Terminal Cheesecake, Denver Broncos UK, Oneida, Mamuthones, Capra Informis and Was Ist Das?‘ Noise In  The Woods compilation.

There’s also my Hickey-friendly end of year chart:
