Wall of Sound presents “2015 YEAR IN REVIEW” – by JERRICO’s Aiden King
We kick off December with our first of many, ‘2015 YEAR IN REVIEW’ slots, set to feature a host of Australian, a few international acts and our own contributors with their thoughts on 2015’s best albums, songs, gigs, music videos and what we can look forward to in 2016.
They’ll be the predictable in some cases but bizarre and may surprise in other cases! Always a fun read…enjoy!
Aiden King, the drummer of Melbourne band, JERICCO starts off the reviews with his personal thoughts on 2015’s best. Of course JERICCO themselves, made a huge impact, locally and nationally, playing several festivals and headlined their own national tour back in April/May in support of their album, Machine Made the Animal. Besides that, they also attended the hugely sucessful ‘Big Sound Live’ Music Conference in September and recently toured alongside New Zealand’s Villainy and other Melbourne locals, Sydonia.
