Evlkeith's Festive 50 2012 (10-1)

It's the moment the whole world has been waiting for: the final ten entries in this year's Festive 50. You'll feel like you've eaten a whole Ferrero Rocher pyramid after this lot.

10. Fall Of The All American - The Nerve Agents - Revelation Records Crash Course
I bought the album based on the strength of this great song. Shame the rest is pretty useless.

9. Killer - Obits - Moody, Standard And Poor
You can't beat a bit of Rick Froberg. Long may he continue making top pop tunes.

8. The Woods - Portugal. The Man - The Satanic Satanist
Some top slinky pop here from those cheeky lovers of random punctuation.

7. I Remember Your Scars - The Hepburns - Trojan Hearse
Top musical moment of this year: discovering that The Hepburns had continuing making music and had loads of albums that I could purchase in a buying frenzy.

6. Off Your Face - My Bloody Valentine - EP's 1988-1991
I'd heard loads of these before so I was limited to what I could choose from, but this is a cracker.

5. Black Bubblegum - The Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works
This is from a great album, I think I may be purchasing some more Dillinger next year...

4. Dead Don King - The Hepburns - The Last Thing I Saw Before I Said Goodbye
Hooray! More Hepburns goodness. I thought that this was about a dead donkey until I read the title. How I laughed.

3. Electric Girl - she - Electric Girl
Another stunning album and 'she' is yet again on top form. There are so many that I could have chosen but I plumped for the title track. Play loud.

2. Audition - Yourcodenameis:Milo - Ignoto
Album of the year in my book, despite the ropey middle tracks. Play loud.

1. Raped By Ape - Rocket from the Crypt - All Systems Go 2
An historic moment. This is the first time a group has received the coveted number one spot ('Come See, Come Saw' was a previous numero uno). It doesn't have the greatest start but when it kicks off, the ending builds and builds to a stunning climax. I hate songs that have the word monkey in the title. It seems that ape songs don't suffer a similar affliction. Play very loud.
