Apologies- this is a bit late but it’s New Year’s Day and I didn’t think anyone would be too bothered if I didn’t have a post up by 8am. Better late than never.

On January 1st 2010 I published my first ever post which means Bagging Area is four years old today.

By far the most popular/read post here is my Lily Allen post (the one with the picture of her flashing her arse, which shows the power of Google images and an eye catching pic I suppose, cos I can’t imagine 37, 935 people have been looking for her cover version of Straight To Hell with Mick Jones).

A choice of songs for you today depending on the state of your head and hangover. First, The Creation, sharp and noisy 60s mods who wrote several key parts of the textbook…

Making Time

If that’s too much then how about some Steve Reich? Electric Counterpoint III

Happy New Year.
