Both are all over the shop, but B is more my thing.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

An easy B despite the Dead Boys.

A was smart to ditch the theme, and I like the Belafonte, but one of the duller Buzzcocks songs and the 'real' Iron Maiden isn't enough to rescue it.

If you set up a theme, for me you have to have the balls to keep it going. B ain't much better but, on principle:-

i do get that, although i think petula rounding out the list the first time may've been the tip-off that the list was gonna ditch the theme. you are kinda stuck either way as a listmaker, i guess. damned if you do, damned if you don't. *i* would've preferred to see the theme keep running, becuz i actually liked the music from the doppelgangers. however, in the first round i voted for both of these lists, and i do think the music is stronger on B. (cheers to A, though, for all the doppelgangery turn ons.)

If I was a little offhand about B (while voting for it, I may add), I'll take it back. Its shaping up to be a terrific list. Corkers tonight!

Didn't think you'd get this far, did you, A? :)

Well, both of these are the clichéd 'mixed bags' for me, but B clearly has more that I really like and a couple I love.
That Stovall Sisters is mighty fine, was considering it for a previous JB&S Cup if I remember right. Good work.

I enjoyed the Felt and particularly The Stovall Sisters additions.

B. On the grounds that A was shit, can't stick to a theme, picked a cack Buzzcocks tune, and beat me in the first round. And B has Neu!
