All four matches look like foregone conclusions already….albeit some folk have found making the choices something of a tough ask.

The Lemonheads 6 v Prefab Sprout 21
Julian Cope 9 v The Housemartins 19
The Pixies 7 v Billy Bragg 19
Ride 25 v Asian Dub Foundation 3

Hopefully, there will be a bit more excitement in terms of close matches in the next round when we get down to the last 32.  Tune in on Saturday to find out………

This week’s half-time, as per the newly adopted practice, comes from the ICA of a singer or band knocked out in the last round by one of the above eight sides; this week offers soething quite gorgeous:-

mp3 : Gene – I Can’t Help Myself (Radio 1 Session – 18 May 1994)

Remember….if you haven’t vote yet, you have until 10pm this coming Friday.

  1. Sprouts, Cope, Pixies, and a band Riding their luck, as they would have lost to Will Bloke, Lemonheads or even Housemartins.

  2. Hey JC,

    Going with the flow this week.

    Prefab Sprout
    Billy Bragg



  3. Not that these will swing the results any, but I feel duty bound to exercise my democratic right.

    Lemonheads v Prefab Sprout – wasn’t familiar with either song, but enjoyed them both. PS production really dates it, so the Lemonheads edge through.

    Housemartins over Cope in second tie.

    Bragg strolls through v Pixies

    ADF’s energy beats Ride in the final match up.
