January was a really strong month. But the highlight was Black Honey, Cabbage and Freak. Although my view of Cabbage has since changed, at the time, I thought they were the real deal. Black Honey, were excellent as always.
Best new band
At the time, it was Cabbage. But due to the issues later in the year, I’ve no plans to see them again.
