Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Psychedlicy folky sort of pop stuff next from Sussex's nom, Texan band, Midlake.

Only the four albums as far as I can see, and a few EPs so better get your noms in quick :-)

As ever, noms to be in by 10pm on Sunday evening, remember your youtube link, and if there is an artist you want featured before this game dies a death, go add them on to the list (no rounds or anything like that now, we are gonna be wild and reckless).

Continue to sizzle in the sun gang, in this weather, I recommend a healthy daily intake of fresh Somerset scrumpy.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Nine noms it is then, and surprisingly, nothing from Sussex himself, hope he's OK, has anyone heard from him?

The show goes on - 3 votes each, voting closes 10 pm on Thursday. There is a gig on that night that I might go to, see how I feel on the day.

The playlist:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

And the noms:

Roscoe
Head Home
Young Bride
Van Occupanther
Aurora Gone
The Old and the Young
Balloon Maker
Am I Going Insane
Children Of The Grounds

My initial feeling is, will I be able to stay awake to the end of the playlist? Let's see what happens :-)

Lez | 7490 comments Sussex has buggered off on hol today, so this has probably slipped his mind !


message 15: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5785 comments He'll won't be able to get his AFL tips in either then...a rare chance for a few of us to catch up then! :-D


message 16: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments Good point!


message 17: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Duke, I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, but if you have the chance to get the tip in, I say go for it.

;-)

Duke’s talking about Val’s Aussie Rules footie punting. tech is currently top of the table and Sussex is second.


message 19: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments yeah, yeah! he's checked into the 'can't take the heat' clinic for exhaustion, caused by trying to keep up with the king of the punts (that's PUNTS, people!) :)

Sorted!! 😂


message 31: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Well if it wasn't for Tim's late votes there, we would be busy right now strengthening the podium.

As it is, a clear result! The winner, that master of all things whimsical, Tech, with Young Bride. The silver this week goes to Sj with Roscoe, and squeezing into third spot, the Duke, with The Old and the Young .
Well played gents, think I need a lie down after all this excitement :-)

Phew! :)

Congrats to Tech.....again! And to Steve....and lil ol me! :)


message 33: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments well, i've always been their no.1 fan!

i'll need to lie down after all that excrement! :)


message 34: by theDuke (last edited Jul 12, 2018 03:24PM) (new)

theDuke | 5785 comments I sometimes wonder why our dear Tech even bothers to participate in these music games...if it's not early punk and rasta music, he hates it!! :)


message 35: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments I suppose it's quite praiseworthy that he bothers, even if he only listens to a few, when he knows he probably won't like anything. ;-)


message 36: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments because, duke, i won, that's why! (cue echoing maniacal laughter)!
no, it shouldn't matter if i like midlake (or whoever) or not - the game is there to be played, i choose to play it! i don't play to hear new music, if i did i'd be very frustrated (i'll be honest and say i haven't bought one scrap of music on the back of mibbe 5 years of playing) - do i get a buzz from gently ribbing the content of these games? probably, but you gots to have the shight to balance the sugar!
not all early punk is good
not all reggae is good
not all reggae is rastafarian music
hate's a strong word. i don't have time to actually hate music - i hate facists, racists, paedos, bullies and ub40 (i'll make an exception for ub40.......and pink floyd........and jethro tull .......and yes.....and.....) :)

theDuke | 5785 comments You play how you want to Techy..as you've pointed out..you do seem do well at these games!

How about The Police? You gotta like them surely?! "ROOOOOOXXXXX....AAANNNE, Yoo dun have to put on de red liiiight!!!" :-)

But I agree with you on UB40..can't stand red red soddin' wine!

Pink Floyd however will always stand up as one the greats, sorry!
