Perhaps not though, Peter’s BCB credibility’s low enough without him topping another poll.

I'd never heard of Frightened Rabbit till this week :(

Still haven't heard anything by them.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

A body has been found sadly.

His family have been informed.

The dullest of the lot. It's depressing that such a trad, beardy band are winning the poll, especially when you consider the strengths of some of the alternatives.

At the time they were a blast, not really their fault that their sound became over-familiar.

What a sad state of affairs -

Orange Juice not in the lead, obviously they are the best candidates.

will I be found out if I take 5 aliases and support the good cause?
