____________________________________________________

Morning all...a bit later than usual, apols for that....so let's get to it then. This week it's Rob's turn with his first theme;

'Songs with US state names in the title - let's hear your Californias, Hawaiis, Idahos etc.'

Straightforward then, so let's be havin' ya noms! :)

Noms in by the usual time, Weds 10pm, thanks.

RSD is now over, I picked up some more stuff online, when the left overs went up, including an interesting EP by a British psychedelic punk band, Those Lovely Eggs. Never heard of them before...nor have I come across the music genre psyche/punk. Looking forward to giving that a spin, when I get it. Also picked up a Tangerine Dream Zeit LP & a ltd reissue of Durutti Column's Another Setting.

Thinking of doing the same thing as Spacepig, and ditching this 'rounds' system and just let folks nom a theme whenever. It worked over on Zon, when there were more participating nominators, but is it really needed anymore on here? Yay or Nay? Your feedback will be most appreciated! :-)

Right..on with the music...& I would say to you all, have a lovely May Day BH folks, but apparently this year it falls on the 7th of May!

Anyhoo, have a lovely week folks! :)

TheFoe | 2160 comments Morning Duke. 😀 I'm actually against you dropping the theme rounds as there would be nothing stopping people from adding theme after theme. I think if you were to have a time limit on each round, as to when we have to suggest a theme, this would be more efficient whilst remaining fair. Just a thought.


message 3: by theDuke (last edited Apr 30, 2018 12:59AM) (new)

theDuke | 5785 comments Morning Nick..yes is there is that..but I was thinking that we would be sensible enough to space our noms out & not just dominate the list with loads of noms!

It's just an idea..but the time limit thing could work too.


message 4: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15764 comments I agree with Nick - rounds let everyone have a turn. You (we) could always say "Round 10 is opening on May 1 and nominations will close on May ??? - one nomination per poster per round".


message 5: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15764 comments So many great tracks to choose from and I can think of many that would earn votes from posters but I'm going to stay true to myself and nominate an artist I love singing a beautiful arrangement (well I think so anyway).

I like Nina and actually have a 3 disc box set (£5 from Oxfam)
Could even get a point, depending on the competition. 😀

Well..look at that! The final votes from Fishy Jim...just pushed Sonic Youth's New Hampshire, by a nose in front, sitting pretty on a high 31 points..which means this week's winner is.....Helen!
Very well done Helen. :-)

Which means, for 2nd week running...yours truly takes the middle step on the podium, with my completely arbitrary nomination...Headin' for the Texas Border by Flamin' Groovies...so i'm chuffed with that...cos I just googled songs with US state names in the title...and picked that one...so thanks for all those that voted for it!

And...there is a tie for 3rd place, 2 classics both on 23 points; Hotel California by The Eagles, nominated by Jemma & Mississippi Goddam by Nina Simone, nominated by Mr Brass Neck.

As it's a glorious sunny hot (for once!) Bank Holiday weekend & that I'm too chilled out to do countbacks..i'm going to be magnanimous and award shared 3rd placing to Jemma & Mr Neck!

And I'm pleased to see, that despite many not making to double figures, at least all noms escaped the ignominy of a null point...so no wooden spoons this week... hurrah! :)
