i've been with B and its new additions keep me there easily (although i for one dig that wings track in A.)

Both of these lists are very close, but I'll go with A again for being a little more daring with the selections.

A would make for a very entertaining listen. B is just a bit too inconsistent at this stage.

Hits and misses on both, but I'm usually loking for more original choices, so if someone thinks they are going to wn with Blue Moon and Memphis Tennessee, well they may be proved rght but not with my vote

D'you know, this is a tough one. I've surprised myself with my leanings towards A. I really like the Ride and Wings picks

I love Mistadobalina!
I was bored with Ride before they were even out of the intro.
The Middle East – good.

Roxy Music – monstrously good.
That Roy Wood effort has death warmed up written all over it.

So pretty even on the new 5s.

A=12 B=14. B wins and will go through to the semis. Get me your next five ASAP please.

A was Ranking Ted. Sorry man.

Ah bollocks. After that horrific start, I'm surprised it ended so close. As I said before, B is one of my favourite lists (indeed, I can get behind 3 of 4 of the semi finalists), so no worries on that front. Although clearly I like mine better.

I much prefer when there's comments in the Cup, that's part of the fun. But, Jeez-o, if you haven't heard any of the tracks (and I hardly think I went full obscuranta), there's always the link, y'know?

Finally, well done Martha, an uncommonly well run Cup. Jobs yours, if you want it! :D

Thanks! You did well here. I was gone before the cup even began...This year was my worst showing to date. I was out in the prelims. Very disappointing...but I am having fun running this whole shebang. I might do it again.
