Is A some kind of fucking joke? Has Boom banged his head and woke up thinking it’s the 2009 final again? I know lists have a tendency to get more conservative as they go on but c'mon to fuck. A is very much classic BCB canon stuff but the next five are really taking the piss. I mean, blatant. I wonder how such a principled BCB cup voter like Fish will vote when faced with such obviousness.

B isn’t that much better in its cynicism. It’s very much alt BCB canon. Buffalo Stance is the kind of knowing hipster 80s choice that makes me want to puke and it’s been done before too. That King Kapisi is wretched. And the fucking Cramps. What the fuck is it with this lot? How can people keep picking them and nobody ever says anything? I’ve probably seen more Cramps over the years than Bo Diddley. Cunts. There are other Can songs, you know?

I feel both have jumped the shark frankly but I’m going to vote for B. Just cos it’s a little bit more out there and because it has State of Independence which is one of my favourite records.

I did.

I'm really getting tired of "Buffalo Stance" being trotted out year after fricking year.

It was The Cramps I was referring to although Buffalo Stance is another one of those old cup picks

Yeah, there comes a point, right. And i say this as someone who LOVES 'Buffalo Stance', 'She's About A Mover', and several other old chestnuts that get picked year after year.
