Thanks! I must admit that I didn't expect to get this far. And the BCB Cup has been going on for so long now it's hard to really surprise anyone. But basically I tried to make my list a sample of my own listening patterns- a mix of old faves and new ones. Some of my favorite acts missed out because they were too obvious or more accurately I plain forgot to include them!

Congrats also to Mike Boom, and thanks Martha for organizing it. It's been fun and the banter and argument it inspires always lightens up the boards. Thanks to everyone who voted for me too. For the record, Jumper K's list was my favorite.

Well done, Profile man! Great job; you never please everyone in the Cup, so as long you please yourself, that's the main thing. Your list is very you, so no doubt you did that.

Commiserations to Boom, well played; and many thanks to Martha for all the work!

The fange will be back at the pointy end next year - count on it, people. :twisted:

Well done TWP, there wasn't much between the final two lists, and the fact I voted against yours probably confirms you as a worthy winner. Thanks to martha for putting the effort in.

Now what do I whinge and bitch about as being dull and predictable, is it back to life again?

Thanks Martha!

And hearty congrats to TWP- my favourite list from the get-go. The addition of the Robyn and Prince tracks partway through guaranteed my continued vote. I hope the success and lavish prizes don't go to your head...... :D
