1. The Modernist
12. Goat Boy
16. Tapiocahead
46. Mike Boom
50. Matty Red Sox
57. BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEP
67. The Driver
95. Sgt Pepper

The Boomer is still slipstreaming along, I note. Respeck is also due to Cheeseface and The Driver, the Aphex/Quo block vote is bigger than I would have thought.

This will go down to the wire. And then Mike will win.

What's the prize, for the triumphant person? It must be something really tremendous, surely? :)

As at round 4 I haven't put a single Quo track in. probably why I've made it this far.

Mike Boom is some kind of cup genius. Is he the most consistently successful contestant since it started? Quite staggering.

I just hope that I don't get Boomed in the Quarters again this year. Although, last year I recognized his list, this year I can't really tell who anyone is anymore.

edited to say, nope, i just went and had a look. i think i've found mike's list.

I'm not going to vote against his list just because he's Mike Boom. I have no clue which one it is but if I happen to think it's a better list, he gets my vote.

I reckon I know it. I wouldn't fancy meeting it, but then there is only one, maybe two, lists I think I'd have a good chance of beating (neither of which are yours btw).

You know mine? Yeah, maybe it's easier to figure out this year.

As Jeff put it, I wouldn't vote against Mike's because it's Mike's, I'd vote against it if it was against a better list.

Booms list is fairly obvious as he tends to pick the same artists each year.

I wouldn't have known it before this round, but with just 8 left these things get easier to spot (mind you I could be completely wrong! :) ). I'm still not sure that I've managed to differentiate between Pepper and Goat Boy though.

I do think that the winner should at least get a lovely shiny sash to wear, in a Mr/Ms Universe stylee...

Um in position, you can't play me out da pocket
I'll take da dopest beat yougot and I'll rock-it
Like chocolate, even vanilla - chocolate, strawberry, saperella
Flavors are electric - try me - get a shock-a

And casket cover clips - dead women hips ya do da bump with - bones
Nutin but love bones
Lifestyles of the Live-en-dead
First ya live den ya dead - died trying ta clock what I said
Now I got a murder rap cause I bust ya cap with Flavor - pure

Come an ride da Flavor wave
In any year on any givin day
What a brova know - what do Flavor say
Why do dis record play dat way
Prime time merrily in da day
Right now dis radio station is busy - brainknowledgeably wizzy
Honey drippers, you say you got it
You ain't got no flavor and I can prove it

Onion an garlic french fried potatas
Make ya breath stink, breath fire
Makes any onion da best crier

I know it sounds crazy but it fits perfect
Peter perfect pimped a perfect Peter
Honey dripper - sucker sipper - big dipper - sucker dipper
Drippin suckers like its goin out-a-style

We're down to the semi-finalists now:

1. The Modernist
12. Goat Boy
46. Mike Boom
57. BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

Regarding the semi finals, I intend to hold these on Sunday. I already have one list, so if the rest of you can get your lists to me before then, that would be great. Then I'll hold the final on Wednesday and announce Mike Boom as the winner on Friday...

I'm glad there are no replays in this round. I'm having a long weekend in Nottingham, including one night of Dutch metal mayhem, so I can enjoy that with worrying about the cup. Marvellous!

Of course, I expected Mike Boom to be there and I'm not really surprised Goat Boy has had a good showing but the other two...... :shock:
