That is my all-time list, but given that I’ve not been writing for that long, it’s abit heavy on current writers. Or maybe the standard now is higher than ever before.

There are loads of young writers that I haven’t included (this includes, but is not limited to: Bamer, Azby, Born, Zokes, Poer… the list goes on) but are showing great potential. I think it’s important to recognise longevity though.

Some of the lists so far have been cringe-worthy. People are either nominating their friends or have absolutely no knowledge of older writers, or both. If you don’t recognise the veterans who pushed things forward in years gone by, you can have no perspective on where we are today. Today’s writers are, to quote Bernard of Chartres, “standing on the shoulders of giants”.

a reckon a top 20 is a fukin stupid idea

20 is loads, top 10 , probably top 5 even better

top 20 is basically sayin " all the writers i like "



may aswell get straight to it and start top 5 writers i hate

Does it need to be reasons regarding their work or can it be because they aren't a very nice person

Please expand as to who's list(s) are "cringe-worthy".

I will not single anyone out for critisism. They did not ask to be highlighted and I have no quarrel with them as individuals.

I would rather keep it that way.

i like how he is not scared of being labelled an 'artfag'. which i don't think he is, but i have seen people call him a few times before.
he's different, just look at his flickr....

plus, i really liked his stuff before his new artier stage, his dub, getting the train to central in 04/05 was like, "spot the ocoe!"

well well

old school.
dice
dose
mak1
enos, totally underated, pulled some key shit in the advancement of scottish bombing
kemo
pane, yes
real, for the pieces and general intro of technique to scotland
the old old school, car plan writers from when scotland had writers with no interweb no magazine, youll never hear of these dudes but they did it first and have kids that must be grown by now,

"mid" school
code and should be in old school too
akme
theme
lap
certx
pube
che
anark
generally those who contributed to the higher standard of bombing back then, ie daze moms etc, the dudes who had full filld in shit, writers who had shit not just in spots but those who youd turn a corner and go "fuck a fillin, there?"

new kids
bamer
arak(just get some fills, fella can and should)
taio a wee bit
resm(whatever anyone says i drive all over and the boy gets it done, best up and comer)
borno, just fill it in!


also not the best or the whatever but writers that i saw going at it

cjd crew
ecb crew(some).....!
syfo
tune
ejek, still there....

writers i dont like or think are over hyped

smug, the cooncil writer, nay style of his own
gazmac
estum, good but theres no serious bombing
sketch
grub, just no!
azby
elf
lyken

well, i dont feel the need to comment to often but the the salmon is en marinade the dog is asleep and the lady is in the bath so....
