Nice Tribe pick, and there's a lot of good grooves to be had with A
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Tough one for me. There is stuff on both I really like and a good bit that was new to me.

Going to go B though - dug that Secret Powers tune and that Black Merda track still rocks. I never heard that John Cale track before - quite enjoyed that. So you get the vote despite that dire Ross Wilson track.

Love the Tribe tune though A.

I like A in patches but PItney and Cope aside it treads a fairly narrow path. Why is everyone afraid of POP MUSIC ?
B gives more variety and the Splitsville track is rather wonderful.

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

I like the Tribe Called Quest track.

A gets it.

This; indeed, this.

Anyway, for the Tribe and Air alone ( and only these ), A

List A
Vivien Goldman – Launderette - Next!
Arthur Russell - The Platform On The Ocean - :?

AFX - Analogue Bubblebath 1 - :|
Pop Levi - Blue Honey - 8-)
A Tribe Called Quest - I left my wallet in El Segundo (Independence Mix) - Next!
Spooners Crowd - 8-)
AIR - Ce Matin La - :D

Julian Cope - :lol:


List B:
Shack – Carousel - Hey, I remember this. It grew on me since the play-ins. :D
Black Merda – Cynthy Ruth - By now, this is an old friend. You may have gotten an ill-gotten benefit by being in the play-in round. 8-)
DustySpringfield – Another Night - Again, an unknown Bacharach become familar and known can only be :D
The Czars – Where The Boys Are - :cry: But it's a good cry.
Secret Powers – Tangerine - :mrgreen: I love you, man.
John Cale - E is Missing - You're scaring me. Don't blow this by getting pretentious, buddy! Please! :|
The Dirtbombs – King’s Lead Hat - :shock: What are you doing? Don't try to be funny! You've got this!
Splitsville – Caroline Knows - Whew! :ugeek: This is good. Stick with the gorgeous stuff and you're home free. I'm rooting for you!
Blue Rose Code - Whitechapel - :) Okay. Okay. Now bring it home.
Rasputin’s Stash – Freaks Prayer - It works. 8-) Now when you go on to the next round, and you will, bring some more of that good power pop.

Hoo boy, that was a lot of work! I don't mind having to listen to a lot of new stuff if it's rewarding, but this was mostly work. And some of the stuff I know from B is because it was in the play-in. Is that allowed?

So, basically this is Gene Pitney and ATCQ vs. The Dirtbombs and Blue Rose Code, with maybe Cale vs. Cope as the tie-breaker.

Awfully close, but I think it's A. Reserving rights to change my mind right up until the last minute.
