Two good lists here but too inconsistent to be great. A seems a little breezier, B seems a little more obvious in the choices of song (not a criticism ). The additions to both lists are faultless. A has half a dozen i'm not arsed about to B's five. A is magic from Donna Summer to the end, but has a scruffier run up to that but its this flow which has just won me over a bit more. I feel shitty for voting against Scott, Mission of Burma,Television,The Fall(their best i think),Television,Husker Du, Blondie,Byrds et al but

A even though it'll be knocked out next

Well done A, that's a top list and one I've endorsed so far, (before this round, of course). There's a heaps of good stuff on it, including several bands / songs I'd happily have in my list. It's also got a wider variety of genres and eras, whereas I took a more "stick with what I know best" approach. Good luck for the semi-final, A.

While I've been knocked out, I can, however, take great satisfaction in having knocked out both of the previous champs and strong list from Diamond Dog. This year's Cup has been heaps of fun, thanks Griff.
