Polyvinyl Craftsmen Most Played 2018

Mark E. Smith left us in January so we did a full tribute show which meant there was only ever going to be one winner of our end of year tally up.

The Fall and a couple of other Mark E. spin-offs head the poll with a grand total of 43 plays.

In second spot we have John Dwyer's various bands with 20 plays.

Third place goes to Parquet Courts/Fergus & Geronimo with 19 spins.

In fourth we have Greg Cartwright with 16.

With 11 plays each we have The Wave Pictures/Surfing Magazines and Holly Golightly in joint fifth.

Sharing sixth position are Shannon and the Clams and Ben Wallers, each were played 10 times.

And we have a four-way tie in seventh with Billy Childish, Jack Oblivian, Devo and Ian Svenonius' various guises. 9 plays for each of them.

See you in 2019 x
