I heard it several dozen times back in the mid-90s, and it was OK, but it hasn't aged well. I even saw them live, in 1994, at Newcastle Riverside. They were OK but the support band Drugstore were better and more fun.

Geez, i wonder which list Copey's gonna go for? :lol:

Well, kudos to you A for getting this far. Getting rid of that Cabaret nonsense was the best thing you could do, and replacing it with a Kuti and Ayers cut was a good idea, a nice track from both that gets a bit over-shadowed by their more well-known stuff. But the core of your list is still too narrow and samey for me, though there are of course great songs that i've loved there.
B has more of a reach here, really. It not only knows what all the right moves are, it knows how to make them too. At least for now. :)

The game's up for A this time. Up against a top quality list.

Just B despite the excellent Eno inclusion in the other list.
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

Weel I scrolled down list A thinking B needs to be absolutely dire not to get this vote, but it wasn't - R Dean Taylor and Terry Jacks were enough.

Never thought I'd vote for a list containing X, but B has a lot going for it.

I've gone back and forth on this one. The Fela/Ayers track is my favourite thing on either list (massive hipster that I am), but B's vibe is generally more my thing and I don't think I'll ever get bored of that Broadcast tune. Hmm. If it were a bit closer then I might spend more time thinking about this, but A looks to have its work cut out this round so I'll give it the symapthy nod.
