For the first installment of 2012, the show has grown to a previously unheard of length. Cracking the three-and-a-half-hour mark is due in no uncertain terms to the addition of the Hammer Of Retribution World Tour; six bands from the tiny countries of Europe, totalling 45 minutes, has replaced what might have been only three or four when I used to do Shut It! in the previous shows. As the tour sets off properly round the world, expect to hear all manner of weird and wonderful bands from the most bizarre places that you’d never thought would have produced even a single band suitable for the show without me drifting off into showcasing the “world ethnic peace music” section of HMV that can probably now be found at politically correct shops like Holland & Barrett.

Otherwise, the tribute to David Gold that I might otherwise have put on the Brucie Bonus show has ended up in this one, as the departed Canuck opens the first show of a year he will never get to see. We’ll have the first of four monthly sections of Paul Houlton’s Recommendations Corner, which will go to show exactly what can happen if you all get off your various arses and send me requests – Paul sent so many that I’ve had to spread them out; also, don’t forget the mandatory Covered, and as is traditional for a January show, I look back to other years that end with a two. My choices may be surprising.

Don’t forget to visit, use that contact form, and spend quality time listening to bands you might never have heard of before.
