As is the way round here, I did my favourites of 2006 review in a distinctly wonky fashion. I had a rather grand notion of doing some silly awards type thing, but forgot all the categories, hence the rather straight up favourite albums and tracks post.
You can find a very eloquently written and well chosen 2006 review at PopScene (especially the blog choices yo!) – For what it’s worth I reckon Discobelle and Fluokids can have a pillow fight over best music blog – Discobelle’s comments section has provided some choice humour over recent weeks especially.
Yeah so, I meant to say Dave Taylor was artist of the year – A man of many an alias and quality remixes in 2006 and has featured very heavily on Slutty Fringe since its inception. The whole ‘fidget house’ ting is kicking strong with new artists and labels popping up all over the place. It’s exciting times.
(Anyone who fancies posting me the One Week To Live issue with the fidget house feature that was out a few weeks back will get some goodies in return)

Slutty Fringe will return in 2007, there may be some more people contributing next year as it takes up alot of time to keep it this good heheh and man like tonypoland needs to work for dollars more. Fear not as there is stringent criteria in place for those that wish to write.
If you have any suggestions on how to improve Slutty Fringe please send such thoughts in written form to me. Have a splendid New Year!
