More really good lists!

I have to single out the one or two I don't like, to make it easier to choose.

A - I'm no fan of Tame Impala, and that Wire track bores me senseless. And 'I Feel Love' is - whatever anyone says - a true Cup cliche.

B - that Fluke thing is shite. And so's that Cinematic Orchestra thing.

I think

B

edges it

B seems to think that the Incredible String Band fronted by Davey Jones of the Monkees is a good idea.

I do not.

B is enjoyably quirky, but A still hits the 'stuff I like' zone more often.

I prefer the stronger personality of B,that version of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' is great.

A's good, B's better.

What is it about that fucking wire track?
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

A's mix of Sly, Tame Impala, Donna Summer and Wire is pretty damn solid.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
