BONUS SERIES : THE ICA WORLD CUP : ROUND 1 (Part 2)

Going to kick things off with the results from Week 1:-

The Lemonheads 30 Spoon 11
The Indelicates 11 Kitchens of Distinction 28
Butcher Boy 28 The Magnetic Fields 8
The Feelies 17 Paul Quinn 21
Big Audio Dynamite 32 The Streets 9
Talk Talk 24 Death In Vegas 18
Sonic Youth 25 Billy Joel 14
PJ Harvey 25  Malcolm Ross 16
Associates 15 Edwyn Collins 26
LCD Soundsystem 5 New Order 36
The Cramps 32 Shit Robot 5
Deacon Blue 5 The Wedding Present 35
The Police 25 v Captain Beefheart 13
The Charlatans 26 The Mekons 14
Saint Etienne 28 v The Sugarplastic 10
Tilly and The Wall 5 Orange Juice 37

No real drama this week – only The Feelies/Paul Quinn match-up saw the tie see-sawing occasionally back and forth; all the other winners established early leads which they built on.  I think what it does show is that if a truly legendary song is aired, as in the case of Blue Monday, then even an opponent as strong, on paper, as LCD Soundsystem really are up against it.  The rules of this competition mean that New Order can’t be represented by that song again…which could be crucial if they make the latter stages.

Thanks to everyone who voted – and I really appreciated the occasional piece of commentary – it was interesting to see that some of the choices were very tough.  But guess what….it doesn’t get any easier, although in saying that, the really big match-ups are in weeks 3 and 4.  The 16 ties in week 2 may lack some of the glamour, but there’s plenty of intriguing match-ups and I can guarantee that some households, particularly in the south-west of the UK, will be bemoaning the random nature of the draw.

Deadline is Friday 26 January, midnight UK time. Once again, don’t feel you have to vote in all instances.

  2. Aw, man! How could you put my favorite Elvis song up against HMHB?!?

    Anyway…
    Gemma (because she loves me)
    Woodentops (G-B’s too sad for me)
    Smiths (with apologies to the Boston scene)
    Arab Strap (JC was wearing an AS t-shirt when I met him)
    Wire (for longevity)
    The Fall (for curmudgeonly longevity)
    Elvis (AAARRGHH!!)
    Blue Aeroplanes (because eloquence)
    Beach House (since they come from down the block)
    Magazine (wins on brilliance)
    Lambchop (Muffins were 1-hit wonders no matter what anyone thinks)
    EBTG (Libertines had it and lost it in 10 minutes)
    SBTRKT (because Kanye is a douche)
    Talking Heads (their importance to modern music still not fully recognized)
    Pavement (this isn’t a serious matchup, right?)
    Orwells (because they’re all younger than my son)

  3. Lightning Seeds
    Wooden Tops
    Mission of Burma
    A Certain Ratio
    Supergrass
    The Fall
    Elvis
    Prefab Sprout (and one of my all time faves by them)
    Beach House
    Prince
    Lamchop
    EBTG (seriously under-rated album)
    SBTRK
    Massive Attack
    Pavement
    Pete Wylie

  4. JC, what I haven’t understood so far about the concept of this all: who in your team chooses the songs?! Or is it some drunken derelict you randomly pick up in front of Nice ‘N’ Sleazy’s and then take home with you ??? Jesus Christ, what a bitter bunch of combinations at times! Aah, either way:

    – Gemma Ray
    – Woodentops (Blasphemy? Perhaps!)
    – Smiths (a goalless draw basically, both songs were no good at all. Where was ‘Revolver’?)
    – Arab Strap
    – Wire
    – Queens Of The Stone Age (note to myself: attention when having the next International Chancers meeting: Drew might spit in my beer when I’m on the lavy!)
    – Half Man Half Biscuit (they simply can’t lose, can they? Also I’m wearing their ‘Achtung Bono’ T-shirt at this very moment, so ….)
    – Blue Aeroplanes
    – British Sea Power
    – Magazine (no question about that, that’s for sure!)
    – Martha & The Muffins (a game which gives “the lesser of two evils” a new definition, but Martha was a minute shorter, so she wins!)
    – Everything But The Girl (my favorite song of theirs, and The Libertines were ace as well, a hard one!)
    – Kanye West (both tunes goddamn awful, would someone give this derelict m.a. a good smacking, please?!)
    – Talking Heads (won by miles!)
    – Pavement
    – Orwells (sorry Pete, but ‘Remember’ is not your finest moment, it must be said!)

  5. Hey Dirk

    It was all explained in the first posting launching the World Cup.

    A coin is tossed. Heads means side A from the ICA, tails means Side B.

    A dice is then rolled for the number of the song on whatever side of the ICA is involved.

    And no song can be used twice in the competition…..all designed to add to the randomness of the game!!!!!!

    GBs (reading the book now),
    Smiths,
    Arab Strap (minor surprise down the Indie Disco),

    Prefab Sprout,
    BSM,
    Magazine,
    Lambchop,
    EBtG despite a strong turnout by the Libs,
    Kanye,
    THeads,

    Woodentops
    The Smiths
    ACR (5-0, Jex Kerr bags a hat trick)
    Wire
    The Fall
    HMHB (in their Dukla Prague inspired away kit)
    Blue Aeroplanes
    BSP
    Prince (Surprisingly good in the air for such a little lad)
    Lambchop
    EBTG
    SBTKRT
    Talking Heads (but only just, extra time and all that)
    Pavement
    Pete Wylie (penalties, sudden death- actually that could have been a Prince joke now I think about it)

  11. Gemma Ray
    Go Betweens
    Smiths
    Supergrass (purely based on the song choice. Hate having to vote against Wire…)
    QotSA
    HMHB
    Blue Aeroplanes
    British Sea Power
    Magazine
    Martha
    Talking Heads

    Half Man Half Biscuit (on penalties)
    Blue Aeroplanes

    Talking Heads
    Pete Wylie

  13. The Go-Betweens
    The Smiths
    Prefab Sprout
    Beach House
    Prince (despite being short, was and will be one of the greatest ever)
    Martha & the Muffins (agree, one hit wonders – but what a song!)
    EBTG
    Massive Attack

  14. Gemma
    Go -Betweens (but points off for Aussie rules)
    Smiths
    Arab Strap

    HMHB (next round can’t clash with the Tranmere game)
    Prefab Sprout
    Beach House
    Magazine
    Lambchop (Martha to one dimensional – just that one big win)
    EBTG (by a distance)
    Match abandoned

  16. After a day of listening on and off in between doing various things:

    Gemma Ray (Ian Broudie loses out due to a lacklustre tune – “Pure” or “Sense” would have walked it).
    Go-Betweens
    Smiths
    A Certain Ratio
    Supergrass
    Fall
    Elvis Costello
    Blue Aeroplanes (close one)
    British Sea Power (good BH tune loses out to my favourite from BSP)
    Magazine (confirmed when it popped up on random play driving back from my mother’s!)
    Martha & The Muffins (marginally the better of two indifferent efforts in this tie)
    Libertines
    SBTRKT (purely by the virtue of being slightly less irritating than Kanye)
    Talking Heads
    Twilight Sad (another close one)
    Pete Wylie

    Relishing the prospect of difficult choices to come…

  17. It takes ages to get through these, so I’ve done the purple ones and may or may not come back and do the green ones…

    Gemma Ray
    The Smiths
    Supergrass

  20. You know what, JC? Little Loser has EXACTLY THE SAME COIN in his magic box … I lose every bloody time!!!

  21. Lightning Seeds
    Go-Betweens – horrible choice as Plenty is a great song from a great band, but GBs unbeatable here
    Smiths
    Arab Strap (Although they will regret playing their joker so early)
    Supergrass
    The Fall
    HMHB
    Blue Aeroplanes – nearly any other combination of songs would have let to a different result
    British Sea Power
    Magazine – Another difficult one
    Dont care
    Libertines
    Joe Dolce
    Massive Attack
    Pavement
    Wylie

  22. Phew. Couple of tough ones here: most notably Elvis vs. HMHB. Ironically, the fact that HMHB drew a football-related track swung it for Elvis. Bloody football. 😉

    The Smiths
    Arab Strap
    Supergrass
    The Fall

    British Sea Power
    Magazine
    Lambchop

    Quite a bit of foul weather so a couple of matches never made it onto the pitch.

  24. Rain and cold conditions plagued most matches this week:

  25. lightning seeds (match abandoned when Gemma Ray failed to come out for the second half –ie I disliked it so much i switched it off)
    go betweens
    smiths
    ACR (this one decided on which i’d rather listen to again – i’ve heard The First Big Weekend so many times and it’s clearly the better song but maybe I listened to it too much back in the day)
    supergrass
    the fall
    HMHB (each and every goal a hotly disputed penalty)
    Blue Aeroplanes
    British Sea Power (goal of the round with Waving Flags)

    everything but the girl
    kanye

    0-0
    Massive Attack
    Pavement
    Orwells

  27. Lightning Seeds (both songs always appear too slow – the Italians of the 80s perhaps?)
    The Woodentops (bit of a shock for me but bad performance by Go Bs)
    The Smiths
    Arab Strap
    Supergrass (They have definately peaked too early but every other song would probably have seen them lose here anyway!)
    Queens of the Stone Age (sorry just think this is a better song)
    Half Man Half Biscuit (playing like the Peruvians in 1978 – especially their mad keeper)
    Blue Aeroplanes (What were PS thinking playing like this!)
    Beach House
    Magazine (I bet there was ructions in the tunnel after this one – just like their gigs back in the late 70s when Simple Minds often appeared with them)
    Martha and the Muffins
    The Libertines
    Kanye West (cant believe how much I didnt like this game)
    Massive Attack
    Pavement ( i always feel like I am missing something with Twi Sad – I just dont like them, same irrationality as I have for Chelsea possibly?)

    Lightning Seeds
    Woodentops – although was disappointed when I saw them recently
    Smiths
    A Certain Ratio
    Wire – without whom we wouldn’t have Elastica
    The Fall – it’s the Fall no more to say (and Josh Homme is a bit of a knob at times)
    Half man Half Biscuit – for Breaking news
    Prefab Sprout
    British Sea Power – everyday
    Prince
    Martha and the Muffins
    Libertines
    Sbtrkt

  31. Hi Neil

    Sorry you missed out on the earlier stuff.

    Everyone is free to vote as they please, but ideally it should be on the song. For instance, in the last round, most readers of this little corner of the internet would likely have said Sonic Youth were more enjoyable to listen to than Billy Joel, but in the match-up, the SY song was a bit of a stinker while Billy’s effort gained a lot of gruding admiration.

    In this round, someone who is a huge fan actually went against The Go-Betweens as they aren’t fond of the song that was to be considered against the brilliance of ‘Plenty’ by The Woodentops.

    You’re free to change any of your votes if you like.

  32. Jules…..your wonderfully acidic sense of humour continually cracks me me up!

    The Lambchop v Martha contest feels as if it will go all the way to the wire….and if it’s a tie, I have the casting vote!!
