Two strong lists. Both of them well-chosen and -mixed. Such a shame that they had to be drawn against one another. Ultimately I think A is closer to my own taste, although oddly enough it's the Beefheart of the new three that I liked most, rather than the Swell Maps (not my favourite from them) or the generic Franklin.

It's still got Alec Eiffel, and nothing on their opponent's list can beat that. Pixies at their finest.

Well, several of you have gone into raptures about a track by the simpering twats of Cock-eyed Rabble, and no has mentioned at all that the same list has also added The Greatest Single Ever Made (albeit in a youTube that fails to capture its true majesty) to the only ddo-wop left in the competition and a great Laura Nyro track. S/he could add on Bowie B-sides, Bjork, Sigur Ros, Hey Jude, Mull of Kintyre, late period Stevie Wonder, Steamy Window and I will still vote for it.
