2010's Top 10 Albums: #8 - Woodenbox With A Fistful Of Fivers

Before the release of their debut album Home and the Wild Hunt, I'd seen Woodenbox With A Fistful Of Fivers more times than I can remember, and could I find any tracks online??  Could I buggery!  So, it was safe to say that this was one of my most anticipated albums of the year... and it didn't disappoint!  You know the drill by now, here's two tracks to show you why they're in my top 10...

 
Fistful Of Fivers
Hang The Noose

The album can be bought from Amazon MP3, iTunes, or physical copies from Norman Records.  If you need more convincing then, once again, there's some live radio sessions here, or here from good ol' Mr. Peenko, including a cracking cover of Lady Gaga!

Here's a few upcoming gigs I pieced together from their MySpace and twitter pages...

10th Dec - Westgarth Social Club, Middlesbrough
11th Dec - Cluny 2, Newcastle
12th Dec - The Arches, Glasgow
18th Dec - O2 ABC, Glasgow (supporting The Silencers)
30th Jan - O2 ABC, Glasgow

If you can't make it to their "very special Christmas show" at Middlesbrough's Westgarth Social Club tonight, then stay tuned to their Facebook for a live stream!  They're on at 10pm with support from, among others, the great Washington Irving.
