Please come and join us. And it's worth re-emphasising you don't need to be in the competition to vote.

Even if you don't want to vote, you will discover some great (and not so great) music.

Is there a Round 1 match 1?
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

You might be pleasantly surprised Frank. I'd say it's the highest standard yet -lots to discover.

One Gun Club track does not tempt me to further investigstion G. A miserable first round full of exactly the sort of dross I envisaged. A new low.

Vote for me!
I'd vote for you.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I'm really disappointed by the lack of interest, voting or comments from the board this year. It looks like we're seeing the death of a great BCB tradition that has given a lot of pleasure over the years. Such a shame.

I was thinking about this last night. I voted for round 2, but votes used to generate five or more pages. Now it's barely two.

People used to come back for this event. Now, even current members can't be bothered.

But wait, hear that?

It's the BCB death knell ringing.

There are certain traditions on here that go beyond the regular chit chat and this shows how much this place has gone down from its inception of us all coming here as music lovers, and highly judgemental music lovers.

On the other hand, I was kinda hoping that since BCB has been self-weeded out, my list might do better. Unfortunately, Penk, who hates power pop, and Martha, who hates the Beastie Boys, pop up like ugly, seasonal weeds in the verdant valley of beauty that was my this year's list.

I think the issue (for me at least) is that the "route to the cup" is quite predictable. In order to really win ties, you need to play the consensus game.
