Written by Gaz E   
Wednesday, 24 December 2014 03:00

EPsLeather86For the first time ever, Uber Rock's hugely-anticipated End of Year lists contains an EPs of the Year rundown. There are a couple of reasons for this: 1.) EPs kept infiltrating the Albums of the Year lists, upsetting OCD sufferers, and 2.) with the music world ever-changing and bands looking to release more extended rather than long players we thought it was time to add a designated EP chart to our annual hot rockin' high five fest.....
