Part and parcel of being opinionated music lovers is that we go and experience lots of music in its natural habitat – on a stage – and then we decide how good it was. Some spectacles are so powerful that they evoke emotions strong enough to form memories through the drunkenness. It’s a rarity but that’s why some here have to name several before deciding upon their Favourite Gig of 2013. There is zero reason for you to be reading this but if you’ve read this far, you’ll get at least halfway down before clicking the cross.

It’s been nearly a decade since the heydays of London’s Household Name Records, and though a question mark may loom over the label’s legacy, it’s certainly been a long time since the UK has held its native punk bands with the same affinity as their stateside cousins. Though Our Time Down Here bear little resemblance to the likes of Capdown, Lightyear or Five Knuckle, they’re as easily accessible, as staunchly independent and they appear to be waving the same ragged flag for British punk rock.

We’ve shown you what Raz and Hugh’s albums of the year are, but they’re not the only ones responsible for the Thrash Hits Top 20 Albums of 2011. Oh no. We’ve got a whole load of contributors – writers, photographers, and miscellaneous behind-the-scenes types – that help keep Thrash Hits running smoothly, and the albums they loved the most from 2011 matter just as much as those favoured by the boss men.
