I've been writing for The Rockpit for five years now and this year they've given me my own list! So I wanted to do something a little differently: this year I wanted to give you an alternative Top 20 of albums that were primarily either self-financed, crowd-funded or independently released but I also added in some cool new releases from bands that seem to have dropped off our radars over the last feww years and who are still putting out quality material. There was some damned good independent music out there in 2016 so give them a chance and give your ears a treat!
