Congratulations, G. Well deserved victory. Just think, for the rest of your reign as BCB Cup champ no one will question your opinions or tastes. They might raise an eyebrow or two but deep down inside they'll know you're right, being the champion and all. It's a wonderful feeling knowing what you listen to is better than what everyone else is listening to.

Great stuff, well done, and thanks for being kind about my list earlier on, it was my first go. In fact you looked for the good consistently throughout this competition and your heart was clearly in your fine selections. Congratulations!

And here's the original of Witchi Tai To, as a mark of respect to you and to modernists everywhere.

Cheers! [raises glass]

Well played, Geraint.
Though your list is mostly NME-approved (and thus BCB-friendly), it does contain some oddities I'm surprised you even know about (like that Busters track for instance).

Cheers, sir!

What a colossal wanker though. Two colossal wankers, really. A dark day for BCB.

Well done G, a brilliant list and worthy winner. Though Bleeps got my vote for being so idiosyncratic. Your final 5 were brave picks, though they may have cost you the title.

Well done to both of you. And thanks to the organisers and vote counters.

Congratulations Geraint! Now you can go back to accidentally ruining your furniture in the name of DIY.

That's high praise.


A simple congratulations would have done the trick.

Well done, Moddie. I take some consolation from the fact that my list was knocked out by the eventual winner.

I was knocked out by a right pile of shite.

Well done the Modernist, a most worthy winner indeed and I'm happy that I was defeated by a list that is perhaps truer to BCB's own heart than my one.

I was very happy just to be playing in the final with a list that had Laibach, Frankie, Mr Flagio, ABBA and Corona in it to be honest. The various comments about the Frankie choice were enough to convince me that it was the right one to make.

Many thanks to everyone who voted for me through the competition.

Great lists by both guys. Congratulations, Geraint. It sure didn't pander to the populists, that's for sure. There were a couple touchstones for people to grab onto, on both lists, but both were really unpredictable and adventurous as you got deeper into them. Good job guys---too bad one had to win and one had to lose.

I liked the Laibach track and that's when I first started noticing your list. I originally thought to myself, "who would have the balls to pick Laibach?" and then when I saw you hadn't been eliminated yet I put two and two together. :lol:

You had one fucked-up list and I mean that in the most kindest and sincerest way. As you kept advancing, you must have been double checking the site address to make sure you were really on BCB.
