I'm wondering whether to hold out for the Mallet, to finally have a chance of winning a tie.

Rare sensible question: Are soundcloud and bandcamp links acceptable? I'm tracking down some obscure stuff that I can't find on youtube.

Maarts, I don't think you should stand down if we have extra players.

You have done that too often in the past.

If need be take my place

Because I don't want to wait too long to start this. Love to have this wrapped up before Christmas so everyone can spend some time participating.

I am quite happy to stand aside, considering the great taste the likes of you and CW have, I really look forward to your picks.

My list is in, too. I've strangely gone against type, and instead of all the obscurities, have only picked big hitters.

Bound to get a drubbing.

Inevitable "D'oh!" for the track I should have included that I only remembered 5 minutes after I submitted my list.

I'm in.

With a new Cup like this it's almost impossible to foretell which way the voting will go on issues like well-known/obscure, old/new, etc. This makes it fun and interesting to me. Luckily, I can always fall back on my impeccable musical instincts :mrgreen: , plus the fact that I don't really give a toss and just pick what I like and think is great.
