We’ve posted nearly a billion tunes this year and they were all great to begin with, so whittling that down to the best odd 100 or so was never going to be an easy task, it is with great pleasure (at re-listening to everything again and again) and pain (at having to exclude some great tracks) that we begin to give you our “Best Of 2017”. It’s a ying-yang experience if you will. 10 chapters in all, culminating in myself & Gerry giving you our Top 10 tracks of the year around New Year. Thanks to everyone who has contributed music and art this year, thanks to everyone who has listened but most of all thanks to our local off-license who have provided us with case after case of knock-off whiskey and contraband cigarettes! So without further ado, ladies & gentlemen I give you SWIT Best Of 2017 Chapter 1.
