A is mostly horrible. That Morphine effort stinks up the place and if I hear a worse song this Cup it'll be a fucking miracle.

of course it's

B

for adequate NO, Sabs and Suede choices

The staple standards of B versus the somewhat staple but much more exploratory efforts of A make a an absolute stone cold winner here for A.

I admire the speculative nature of Aover the staid nature of B every time.

Psychic TV, Residents and the Tshetesha boys versus what hallo Helsinki?

That anne briggs is an absolute beauty by the way.

Can't cope with most of B, though I love the Grace Jones (it's been used before, of course).

A has a couple missteps - Blancmange? :? - but gets bonus points for Anne Briggs, as well as picking among the few Psychic TV and Residents songs I actually like.

The Armstrong pick in B seems like a token "something different". A however is probably too eclectic. It's got Anne Briggs though so that's an

I really dig elements of B but it's best - Grace, Suede - seem a little leggy in Cup terms. I listened to the links on A and was pleasantly surprised by more than half of them. Hmmm. Difficult.

A, with apologies to B.

The Quirk is strong in these lists! It seems like both A and B had the blast shields down on their helmets when they were choosing their lists. :)

Seriously though, an interesting match to kick off. Both have a mix of stuff i like and don't like; it's like looking at a couple of random playlists from their ipods when they had them on shuffle.

In the end, i think B's highs are a bit more my thing (GJ, NO, Satch, Suede). The Staple Singers from A is always welcome round my place though, as is Godstar.

We're not going for obscurity much then....
Both have highs and lows like a Pyrenee-stage in the Tour De France with the rest stuff I can get along with. Usually I have a few songs determine which list I prefer but none sticks out really here...

On countback

Is Killing Joke gonna be the feature band in a Cup again?

I don't like anything on B

I really like that Ornella Vanoni track, though the Psychic TV and Residents tracks would have been enough.
