The Nico, James Brown and Knight Brothers selections were what got my pulse racing in this round. B's classics saw it through last time but up against someone with a really interesting, exploratory list, it stalls.

A.

:lol:

Don't you hate it when you're B and someone says something like this?

Incidentally, have Snarfyguy and I ever voted the same way in one of these competitions?


I'm flattered that you idolize me like this. All I can say is don't be discouraged; it's never "too late" to develop good taste. :D

a....

Comanche - Link Wray
Not as addictive or attacking as "Rumble", but then what is. It sure does bite though, particularly in the final coda. +3

Public Image - PiL
The persecution complex gets its own record. Lydon rails, whines and sneers at the listening charging them with not listening to a word he said. Then again, the words here are secondary to Wobble's relentless bottom-end. Keith Levene's swandiving guitar and the sense that what didn't kill them can only set them free. Amazing, and U2 liked the sound so many they bought the company. Well, parts of it.

+4

These Days - Nico
A riposte as a haunting lament, Nico's vocal is as monotone as ever, but the music makes it warm, the glacier that's beginning to melt. Used to great effect in Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums, who understood the generosity behind its blank stare. +4

I Don't Want to Discuss It - Little Richard
If only because Little Richard has already made his point clear, just within the force of his singing.
+4


The Payback - James Brown
Relentlessly sampled, for sure. But it's the echo behind the funk, the notes that are held on long enough for the chorus to twist them, the sense of grimiy hollowness. Still, compared to "Cold Sweat", this is child's play, the aurual equivalent of a fixed fight in an open ring. Rap music wouldn't be the same without it. +4


Mystic Eyes - Them

Back when Van really was the man, this is amped, sexy, and ultimately incoherent. A Different kind of myticism than what he dealt in later on, but an altogether sexier kind. Relentless. +4



B has some of my favourites (Dusty, Aretha, Miles Davis, "Substitute", the Kinks) but this seems to have a real narrative to it. I'd really like to hear it, if that makes sense.

A

Matt's vote is a few minutes outside the deadline, but I'm minded to to count it & call it 18-18
