A has four I love (Lee D, Blondie, REM and the Creation), five I like (Rod, La's, Gil, Ike and T, and Future Islands), and the rest are OK apart from the Kurt Vile, the Lush and that Damned pub-chucking-out singalong bollocks - none of which I hope to hear again as long as I live.

B has nine I love (Fall, Lou, Stones, Suede, Clash, T Rex, Ben E, Kinks and Can), four I like (Mongo, Ikettes, CCR, Little Richard), and the rest are OK I think (I can't be arsed to listen to that Isleys thing but I bet it's the usual overrated oleaginous 70s toss).

They are both pretty good lists but when they reach out for obscurity they mostly end up with mediocrity.* As we expected in this Cup.

so it's


*but thanks for the Lee Dorsey and the Ben E King - both new to me and both fuckin' A-grade

Love both of these.

B is just a tad more exceptional.

I like that 'Seasons', A! A fine list overall. But, i'm going with B.

I'm going for a grumpy bastard abstain. Nothing of interest here.

Decent lists but I think both contestants could've dug deeper, taken a few more chances.

Never understood the Earl Brutus thing, their only fans were music journalists. Deerhunter pass me by too.

B's slightly more me but I like the big flavours on both lists.

A did a nice job on the newest additions while B retreated a bit to safety.

Makes it closer, but B still built up enough good will - and A has the Brutus and REM and a few others - that it's still the one deserving of the win.

I think we ended up with two fine lists in the last round, so congratulations to both. The second list is just a little more consistent through and through, while the first list has a few that I actively dislike. I like pretty much all of B. (edit: except Suede. Fuck that band.)

Good Cup this year...thanks to Penk for organizing.

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

I think B is a splendid list, full of stuff that I'd gladly spend time with and featuring light and shade, the familiar and the obscure. Great stuff. However, I'm going for A for obvious reasons. Fuller comment will no doubt follow...


Oh yeah, and many thanks to the organiser - good work, Penk!
