Favourite albums from the first half of '08

It's been quite a while since I last posted anything on here. Without having a radio show anymore, there's not as much music info for me to pass along.

One new development though, is that the London Underground is hosting a new weekly event called Shake Appeal. It happens every Tuesday night and so far it has been great. Myself and Johnny Law are the DJ's, and we're still featuring super-cheap import beer specials. You can find more information here:

Also, lately a lot of people have been asking me for a list of my favourite new albums. So, here's the stuff from the first half of 2008 that I've enjoyed most, in no particular order...
