Hate to be the party pooper guys but really ? I'm feeling B way more. Everything I didn;t know I clicked on turned out to be pretty good and the Rosetta Tharpe may be a classic clip but it's still one of the greatest things ever.

These are both pretty good, so it's fine margins here. A has slightly more missteps than B - the Suede and Stranglers picks are hardly their A game and I'm not in the constituency for Stabbing Westward. 2 to 6 is a good run though. Not feeling the LA Salami track but otherwise B has nice stuff.

A despite the Suede.
You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.

A has a good run of songs from 2 to 6, and that's enough for this stage.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

That Stabbing Westward pick is bold and I think it's the sort of stuff we should see more of, A is a mighty fine list.

1. Suede - Lazy - Evoking the Byrds in an English way
2. Allah-Las - Busman's Holiday - I like this...bookmark these guys
3. Blondie - The Hardest Part - Debbie isn't lip syncing very well. Keeps taking the mic away from her face.
4. Captain Beefheart - Call On Me - I love his old, more commercial stuff.
5. Steve Wynn - Nothing But the Shell 
6. The Left Banke - I've Got Something On My Mind 
7. Stabbing Westward - Save Yourself - I like a little industrial now and then.
8. The Stranglers - Dreamtime - Sweet keyboard break.
9. Best Coast - Feeling OK - Nice pop track. I didn't listen to all of it. I got the gist.
10. Destroyer - 3000 Flowers -



List B:
Secos e Molhados - Sangue Latino -
Bobbie Gentry - He Made a Woman Out of Me - She's been a breakout star of this year's cup. Rightly so.
Sister Rosetta Thorpe - Didn't It Rain - Great! And of course, the odd white person is clapping on one and three.
Jackson C. Frank : Blues Run The Game - Great track.
Jim O'Rourke - Women Of The World - Maybe a great message. But the women in power these days aren't any better than the men. Theresa May, Betsy DeVos, etc. Does this need to be almost 9 minutes, though?
Dengue Fever - 1000 Tears of a Tarantula - I LIKE THIS A LOT!
Cat Power - Wild Is The Wind - Cat Power is showing up a lot too. I like her, but others have done this song better.
The Whyte Boots -- Nightmare - A novelty parody song? Okay.
Kan Wakan - I Would - Kinda Twin Peaksy, innit?
L.A. Salami - The City Nowadays - Cool.

Two pretty good lists, but I like more of B.
