Not a great deal wrong with B but A is that bit better. Shame, they're both big hitters.

Fine lists - best match-up of the night, I think.

There's not really anything on A I don't like (there are six I don't know) and I like the fact they've gone for 'obvious' choices by Kinks, Sonic Youth, Teardrops, and X-Ray Spex. These songs are tough little fuckers that can keep souls rocking for decades.

'Blank Generation' can't hold a candle to 'Love Comes In Spurts', of course, and there's much better by Rod.


Three of B's new three ('Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo', 'New Gold Dream', and 'The Devil Is Dope') are about as good as anything ever gets, and there are smashing Byrds, Damned, Felt, Bowie, Stranglers, Tim B and Isleys' songs too. But why 'The Changeling'? and choosing Lloyd Cole (ooh! poetry!) and Dylan causes me to think twice.

I'll come back to this.

There's good stuff on A but I think B is taking a journey, and my vote, this time.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Despite A having 2 of my favourite songs
