There is little that interests me in either list but I vowed I wouldn't abstain.

Tough not to but.....

a...Scores 53
b...Scores 47

Its A, on a scientific basis, but still skeptical of some choices.

Two fine lists, but B picks up a real head of steam near the end- from Husker Du's "Diane" to Horace Andy's "Skylarking," it's most certainly (as they say), alll good.

B, along with A in the other match, would be a dream final of what's left (though I was robbed).
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

I've voted against A in the past because of a few odd tracks I dislike. In the context of a longer list though I can overlook those and I have to admit overall it's very good, probably my favourite left in the competition.

A90 - 88B

A should win - just - on paper, but it's so close, I'm looking at how I feel about the lists as a whole, and B feels more adventurous, more varied and 'me', despite a sorry lack of newer stuff, ie I feel if I knew all the tracks on both lists, B would win be a few points.

so sorry A, but I'm going B

A's a great list, about as great as you can get while basing things on 80s and 90s indy and a few great tracks from elsewhere. It would make a great mix tape.

But i can't really find anything to dislike on B except maybe the Joni track and it has a handful of my all time top 10 tracks on it.

Had to really weight this out. Tough one, but B gets my vote.

A has made the most perfect 5 song addition in the history of the BCB Cup.

B. A has more surprises, but B just has the better songs.

* think think think *

I'm not overly feeling either, but my record in BCB cups should put me firmly in place
