Can we really have a list winning the cup with that Klark Kent novelty abomination in it?
Looks like it...

Mind you that's 'Wichita Lineman' compared to the Rockpile and Fred Frith tracks!

B is really inconsistent but it's quite a bit of fun and does have some top little picks. A is solid and reliable and just a bit grey.

I certainly don't do the Googa thing of one artist automatically disqualifying a list, but I've said it before, there's a list of artists on a BCB cup list that tend to push me towards the opponent. Not artists I hate as such but compared to the rest of BCB I remain underwhelmed by the whole Bowie/VU/Roxy thing and I just think Really is that the best you've got. B not without fault but does enough.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

Counted this one twice, and I'm happy to call this: A 23, B 27. Terrific battle this - A shot out into a big early lead, but B staged a strong comeback to take it! Bad luck to A, who put up a good fight here; this was Brassneck! Five more songs from B, please!

Ach! Hard luck brassneck, it was my fave list of those left in the competition. Still, a good effort all the same to get this far.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.
