Mad Mackerel's Best of 2011.For the second of our ‘guest’ top ten posts we are pleased to welcome the finger-choppin’ Banner to the roster with his first contribution to the end of year best of lists.

It’s been a great year musically and especially as this year I became a dad. I’d like to thank Doctor Roddy and Chris T Popper for their steady supply of CDs this year and especially for little Max’s mega mix from which I’ve selected some of my top ten tunes.  I would like to have written a bit more about the songs but unfortunately I tried to remove my finger with an axe earlier this week.

So here they are:

    Peachy work my axe wielding friend. got some great tunes in there, most of them in the wrong order but still, great songs.

    Some cracking tunes here mate. Really like your number one and number three. Why not start your own band? You could call it the Dennis Hopper Thumb Choppers. Nice one.
