Both quite patchy..I'll go b here, but it seems to be weakening as it adds more tracks.

B gets my vote, but these are very erratic lists which seem to be getting worse as they go further.

Some head-scratchers in both, but it's mainly a tough call because both have plenty I love. Mind you, the popularity of Sisters of Mercy this year is fairly bewildering. Big kudos to A for picking both Altan and Doll by Doll, but I think B is just a touch more consistent in the end.

Damnations!

A has the Ruts and Altan AND some Momus (I always wished that was called I was a moist intellectual) BUT B has got one of my favourite song and videos ever in the shape of the magnificent Mercy Seat by Ultra Vivid Scene.

I will need to deliberately deliberate further.

Best match up tonight. A has the better, more interesting individual picks but goes off in a few directions that don't interest me much. B is more consistent but without the surprise 'yes!' factor that some of A's best picks have. I do like its pop approach though, in the most chin-strokey Cup I can recall. Will come back to this.

Go ahead, B
You got it goin' ON
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

My two remaining favs pitted are pitted against each other....FUCK. I wanted to see both of these lists go on (and on and on)

It comes down to....


I Should Have Known Better - Wire
Dominion/Mother Russia - Sisters Of Mercy
I Believe In You - Talk Talk
This Big Hush - Shriekback
Praire Rose - Roxy Music
When I Dream - Teardrop Explodes

VS.

Dream Academy - Life In A Northern Town
The Waterboys - A Girl Called Johnny
The Velvet Underground - What Goes On
Simple Minds - Glittering Prize
New Order - Temptation
Roxy Music - If There Is Something (Live at the Apollo)

AAAAAAAARGGGH.

Why can't these two be pitted against ANY OTHER LISTS????
Honest to fuck I hate most of the other lists remaining in the cup.
Damn.

I will abstain for now -- and add both tracklistings to a you tube playlist so I can groove to them as I pack the kitchen and dining room tonight.... Then if I can decide at that stage, I'll vote.

B's okay. A is slightly less okay.
