That Lee Dorsey song is fucking A! First happy discovery of the Cup!

Thank you


(B is really nothing special at all, sorry)

There's a stately earnestness about list B that makes it cohesive, so kudos for that. I am more swayed by the loose-limbedness of its opponent though.

Now here's a first - two very good lists at the same time. Very, very close but I'm going to give the nod to B here 'cause I like that it's straying from BCB normalcy a bit. Though it would be an easier decision if they'd used a better Broken Bells track.

I like B - nice Broken Bells, lovely Toussaint, something from my fave FC LP - but love A. It would win for Reuben Wilson's 'ICB' all by itself, but the rest is top-notch too. Great work.

Easy. A is my favourite list so far. Love the La's cut in particular. Sorry, B.

B goes for it, but A is a real contender, I suspect.

A is fine and is certain to win here and would have gotten my vote if this was tight (which it might turn out be who knows)(not really) but I have to reward a list that picks Songdog even if I'm not that fussed about anything else.

List A seems uniformly dull to me, it's like a Mojo editor's dream or something.

List B is pretty patchy, and I'm not sure anything's actually enjoyable beyond Fairport Convention, but at least there's a bit of life about it.

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 is one of the best lists yet. Particularly liked the slice of David Holmes. Outside of the rather obvious Fairport pick B has little to offer, Bellowhead are a band I always struggle with - such a great sound and such boring music. And that Songdog track is stinking the match up.

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
