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

A fine and playful sense of the humorous and absurd, and a delightful propensity for making psychedelic music that sounds like a child's bike with training wheels in comparison with other, darker bands. I didn't mention it, but they were also charmingly ramshackle at times. And Sensible is my second favourite Captain after Beefheart

Both lists are pretty consistent in quality and inconsistent in tone but while I think A would be a decent listen, I think B has more adventure and unpredictability to it, which I like.

I was B.

A, unless I can find some novel way of getting you disqualified, you will need to send me your final three by Sunday.
