I’m hoping by now that everyone is familiar with the way it’s all unfolding. If not, the postings over the most recent two Sundays should explain things in the detail you’re looking for.
Last week’s match-ups proved to be hugely disappointing for the TV folk, as all four results were never really in doubt and there wasn’t much in the way of tension. Having said that, viewers stayed with the games all the way to the end, with 47 sets of votes requiring to be tallied.
First up, the results from last week:-
Match 5 : Edwyn Collins 35 Uncle Tupelo 7
Match 6 : Bryan Ferry 31 Hot Chip 11
Match 7 : Chuck Prophet 11 The Jam 33
Match 8 : Joy Division 41 Pop Will Eat Itself 4
I have a feeling, however, that this week’s match-ups might offer a bit more in the way of intrigue:-
Television (1st in Group C) v The Jazz Butcher (8th in Group A)
mp3: Television – Friction v mp3 : The Jazz Butcher – Southern Mark Smith
Belle and Sebastian (4th in Group B) v John McGeoch* (5th in Group D)
mp3: Belle and Sebastian – This Is Just A Modern Rock Song v mp3 : Siouxsie & The Banshees – Happy House
(*John McGeoch’s ICA was a compilation of tracks he played on)
The Beatles (2nd in Group D) v Queens of the Stone Age (7th in Group C)
mp3: The Beatles – Ask Me Why v mp3: Queens of The Stone Age – Little Sister
Buddy Holly (3rd in Group A) v Black Box Recorder (6th in Group B)
mp3: Buddy Holly – Everyday v mp3: Black Box Recorder – England Made Me
As ever, thanks for taking part. Voting closes at midnight (UK time) next Friday, which is the 23rd of September.
