As usual, we will begin with the results from last week:-
Match 17 : Go-Betweens 25 It’s Immaterial 9
Match 18 : Human League 30 The Twilight Sad 9
Match 19 : Stereolab 14 Neil Young 21
Match 20: Bananarama 14 Beastie Boys 20
For a short time, the final match was competitive, but the NYC crew eventually proved too strong. Neil Young held off something of a comeback from Stereolab, but as you can see from the final result, he scored a few late on. Personally, I’m disappointed, having championed The Twilight Sad so many times on the blog over the years, that they picked up so few votes. If VAR was part of the process, I might have found a way to remove most of the goals scored by the Human League.
This week’s intriguing(?) set of games…..
Suede (3rd in Group G) v Scritti Politti (6th in Group F)
Manic Street Preachers (2nd in Group E) v The National (7th in Group H)
Siouxsie & The Banshees (4th in Group F) v Amelia Fletcher (5th in Group E)
(Amelia Fletcher’s ICA was a compilation of songs by various bands she has been part of)
Lloyd Cole (1st in Group H) v The Delgados (8th in Group G)
As ever, thanks for taking part. Voting closes at midnight (UK time) next Friday, which is the 14th of October.
