A isn't fooling anyone by moving its Q Special Issue alt-classics around. Mind you, most lists would have to get up pretty early to get one over on B, a handy list indeed.

A should be credited for broadening their selection, which actually has the effect of making some of their more obvious picks much fresher. It's taken three rounds to get there, but it's now looking a good cup list.
It ends there though for me as B has very close taste to me ( it's obvious to me who it is) and doesn't disappoint me here. It's all really good and in particular you get the Keith seal of approval for picking a really engaging Sun Ra track (not always easy to do!) and for reminding me how great Footsteps In The Dark is.

So for me it comes down to Joy Division and the Fall vs X?

X is a riskier choice....and today I like risk. X it is.

Funnily enough I was listening to the Poppy Family the other day after watching a vintage porn clip soundtracked by There's No Blood In Bone. Now if B had picked that I would have thought it was fate but they pick something weaker unfortunately. I like B but it's a bit brown and shit like Pentangle and the Dillards ain't gonna rock my world and it's all very tasteful - it needs some Van Halen. Still, that Sun Ra tune was actually listenable.

A is actually opening up but sadly not in directions I really want to go. So, for the Isleys track I'm going with....

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

B by a smidge, both worthy, though. I think you might be wise to take Goatboy's advice here, of course we're a couple of early exit flunkies.

'Two Librans' and 'Baby's On Fire' have both given me enormous pleasure over many, many listens. The rest - I dunno. Fucking Fela Kuti again with his supposedly amazing 'beat'. Yeah, yeah.

So yet again this one goes to

Remember that anecdote about the kid at school called 'dog tosser'?

Well, Echobelly was your 'dog tosser' moment.

Sorry man.

It was one song. I've never mentioned them before and I'd never hold them up as a great band. But that one song - it really is special.

I'd ask you to listen again but as you're all too busy guffawing and slapping each other on the back....
