The very first bcb cup tie

Postby The Modernist » 11 Sep 2018, 03:42

Makes for interesting reading today!

Toby wanted it to be a poll, there was a long argument about whether votes should be sent by pm (how boring would that have been!), Bhoywonder thought you should be able to choose tracks from both lists!
The first one was contested by Penk and Copehead. Penk might shudder at how conservative his list now looks, while Copehead will no doubt maintain his list was the best ever and it was all downhill from there.

Extremely conservative, yeah; though in all honesty, Copey hasn't changed his list style at all since then. :lol:

The lack of YT vids is eye-jarring now.

I suppose lists back then had to be quite conservative as picking a bunch of more obscure stuff without the aid of youtube would be a turn off for voters who need something familiar to get a feel for the list.

Voting by pm was a non-starter, glad that idea was quickly nipped in the bud

About 5 years before i joined.

Many people had come and gone by 2010 when i washed up here on BCB's shores, let alone 2005, but the BCB Cup (and the genre Cups too, really in lesser ways) has always held a special appeal for me as it invariably creates snapshots of what this place is about musically as well as personality-wise. It's about the music and the comments too, trying to find a common ground with other players while being true to our own tastes.

And having a bit of fucking fun while we're at it, you know.

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

Hasn't Dinosaur Jr's Freak Scene been picked in every cup since, too?
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.

Bleh, BCB basics. At least Penk has the excuse that he was only 12 at the time.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
