Fuckin' hell. I know one should be a good sport, but losing against a half-baked list such as this really hurts.
Cloth-eared gits, the lot of you (except Yves, Kaspar, Daddy Longlegs and - what a nice suprise - Nikki, obviously).
I mean, who in their eight mind would put 3 "Mother" songs in his first 10, among them the nadir of Gryphon's whole career - a Beatles cover that adds nothing but a handful of recorders to the original??? An unlistenable Cos track? The Apocalypso instead of the far superior Collapso? And later John McClaughlin (sic) and his pal Carlos in guru worship mode? Bloody Frankenstein???
Has anybody listened to the twin guitar tour-de-force by A.F.T.?
It blows Wishbone Ash clear out of the oven!
The Nick Mason track which is Carla Bley and Robert Wyatt playing at out-floyding the Floyd?
The lovely Fuchsia & Audience tracks?
No, it's gotta the Moody fuckin' Blues or Roy bleedin' Harper.
By the way, I would have gladly lost against Whodathunkit's list in round... in fact I abstained because I liked it so much.
Anyway, I'm not really
bitter, I never got that far in the normal cup!
And in case anyone wants to know, here's what I had lined-up to get sunk by the canonizers in the finals.
