A is weird and wiggly... even lightheartedly goofy... real interesting list. I'd listen to that. (but then again, I just listened to Steppenwolf 7 :P ).
You'd pay big bucks to know what you really think.

Because it doesn't have the Archies.

List A is another with a lot of bands I like but very few killer tunes, a 10 for Devo and 34 points, the guy is obviously an 80s fan, but a different sort of 80s fan.

B racks up a lot of points without ever really making me go wow, again some good groups with what I consider to be poor choices, the Pogues for starters. But 63 points and 10s for Ig, Shipbuilding and the Beat, and only one Nul Point, so must be doing something right.

I've got nothing against the Archies and the Devo track is particularly good. A please.

Sugar, Sugar - The Archies
I Say Nothing - Voice Of The Beehive
Do The Du - A Certain Ratio
Tiny Sticks - ESG
Mongoloid - Devo
Precious - Pretenders
Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely - Hüsker Dü
Aurora Borealis - Meat Puppets
New Town - Life Without Buildings
Point That Thing Somewhere Else - The Clean


I don't really know where I stand with either list, but the Meat Puppets at their most tantalizingly woozy, one of the Clean's finest, Devo at their most demented, along with nice picks from the mighty ESG and a solid if not classic Huskers track round this off at a pinch. I don't know whether they're having a laugh or not with the Archies, but I like their gall all the same!

Both good, and imaginative, with a couple of stellar selections and duds apiece, but A is just that little bit better for me.

A seems very drab to me. My imagination is set ten times more on fire by 'Rainy Night in Soho' (the right Pogues choice) than almost the entire list A put together.

So B.

I dunno. I can't decide. B's greats (Stooges and Pogues) are neutered by the appalling Costello and JAMC.

I might come back.


Interesting.

A has nothing at all to recommend it whereas the 2 tracks you mention (Costello & JAMC) sell me on b
