Good to see the final making it to six pages, even if some of that was down to Huw and G having an argument about how close it was....

Anyway, I agreed with Huw's figures throughout, and though B rallied a bit, A always had the advantage. The final score:

A - 45; B - 40

Surely everyone's worked out now that A was Thesiger, who is hereby crowned your BCB Cup champion for 2012! Commiserations to John Coan, who ran a good race but has to settle for the runners-up spot.

I've stuck the crown in the post. There might be a bit of 'wear and tear' as I was quite fond of wearing it out.

Nice one Joe.

Now, what ceremonial duties is he obligated to perform?

Well done, Siger!


Unlucky Coan.

Oh, and a big thankyou to the masked man for organising and running it.

Well played. Congratulations!

And definitely big thanks to masked man. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun this season.

Congratulations Joe!

The result was close enough to keep it interesting.

Sorry for Coan but there's always next year.

I never worked out which was which - at first I thought A was Coan due to the Pixies pick, and B Thesiger due to the (possibly cupicidal) Lord Rockingham's XI. Then I thought that would be too easy an interpretation and there was a bit of exponential bluffery and reverse-angle psychology going on, on both sides.

Congratulations and well played, Thesiger.

Thanks for all the plaudits. And for the critical comments on the lists themselves. The cup is made all the more stimulating for the presence of posted feedback from voters, however caustic or congratulatory. I always enjoy TopCat G's informed comment, as well as the dissections from the likes of Penk, Copehead, Rank Bajin, Buddha, and many more. As always, Nick, Tym, The Fish, Trans-Chigley, The Baron, Yves and Martha shared their characteristically astute insights into what makes music great, and what is merely serviceable.

A pat on the back to Andrew for his patient and tireless administration and number crunching. He deserves an award of his own!

A special word too for Mr Coan, who posted a fantastic selection which pushed me all the way. And to TRGP whose fine playlist lost by a whisker in the semis. I was runner up in 2010 (Hats off to John K!) and my list, as many of you will have commented, was a careful interpolation around the BCB-friendlier regions of my collection. I think I judged correctly that your tolerance for folk, country, and classic pop-rock would not commend some of my core tastes. But everything I did field was - hand on heart - a genuine favourite of mine and is readily available off my CD shelves or is lodged in my computer or iPod.

At various points along the way I balked at posting several of the following (Just as well, I can hear you say)!
