____________________________________________________
Evening all,

We now move onto Lez's theme: 'Bands/solo artists from Sheffield'.

For anybody needing a few pointers, here's a list of qualifiable choices, as provided by Mr B & Lez, but I suspect there are many more:

ABC
Arctic Monkeys
Baby Bird
Dave Berry
Jarvis Cocker
Joe Cocker
Comsat Angels
Cabaret Voltaire
Def Leppard
Grease Band
Paul Carrrack
Richard Hawley
Heaven 17
Human League
Last Shadow Puppets
Longpigs
Pulp
Reverend and the Makers

And Tim has this wiki link (check for accuracy though!): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...

Noms and links in the usual fashion, by the usual time, please, thanks! :)

I'll shall be closing R10 noms in a couple of weeks time, as we are beginning to run low, so please if you haven't nom'd a theme yet for this group, please do so, thanks.

Ciao for now!

theDuke | 5784 comments Well...a quick nom, that I might change, but love this track:

With A Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker
Walk Like A Panther - All Seeing Eye feat. Tony Christie

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeFyD...

If this isn't acceptable on account of Mr Christie, then i'll find something else.

I was a student in the early eighties, so Sheffield was the centre of the musical world...

Lez | 7490 comments Duke, it’s All Seeing I. Tony Christie is fine - lived in Sheffield all his life!
I’d never heard of All Seeing I or Paul Carrack till now.

Gordon, I lived and worked in Sheffield all of the ‘70s and ‘80s but had no idea it was the centre of the musical world. I seem to have lived in a bubble for long periods of time. :-(

Jolly good, I didn't realise that Mr Christie was also Yorkshire born & bred too.

More Paul Carrack. "The song thought to be of a woman cheating on her boyfriend, but not such. Actually the song is about the band finding out that their bass player was playing with another group, and intended to leave ACE for this group. Once they found out of the bass player moonlighting behind their backs, the bass player had a change of heart, and decided to remained with ACE."

theDuke | 5784 comments Rightyhoo then, almost forgot....so who won what?

In 1st place: Babies - Pulp - scored 25 points, so this week's winner is...…….Lez! Well done Lez Lee! :)

& first of the runner ups: The Black Hit Of Space - The Human League - scored 23 points, nominated by Tech Sergeant.

*Edited 28/08/18*

And the best of the rest, yet another tie: Your Enemy Cannot Harm You by Chicken Legs Weaver, nominated by Derek, & Temptation by Heaven 17, nominated by Fishy Jim - both scored 20 points apiece. Nominally, max pint dictates that Jim would've secured 3rd place, but as I've f**ked it up (again!), and I can't be arsed to do countbacks anymore, so both Derek & Jim get to share the 3rd step on the podium...hope you don't mind snug encounters chaps! :-)

Congrats to you three, especially Lez.

And finally, we have a wooden spooner…..quite possibly one of the oddest tracks I've heard in a while...and i'm no stranger to peculiar songs myself, but this one was perhaps in a league of it's own! Hard luck to 'Dogmeat by Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink', which scored a nul point..so here's your wooden spoon Tim!

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments probably, derek, but sometimes the lines between blur and plup become, well, blurred! i can always identify suede, because when i hear them i think "aw f%£&, it's suede!" :) sorry, les! :)

Fishy_Jim  | 970 comments And the best of the rest, in 3rd place, Your Enemy Cannot Harm You - Chicken Legs Weaver - 20 points, nominated by Derek."

Referee, Part 2! Are my noms invisible or something?
I think you'll find that Heaven 17 also had 20 points and that it had 3 maximums to Chicken Legs Weaver's 1.
To quote Douglas Adams: Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you!

theDuke | 5784 comments Aw smeggin' 'ell! Sorry Jim, I obviously missed your nom's score, sorry about that. I can't be arsed to do countbacks anymore, so let's just call yours & Derek's joint 3rd placers..if you can stand to stand with Derek on the podium!

I'm getting brand new specs in a few days, which will finally put a close to the last 6 months of vision improvements I've been going through. At the moment, due to astigmatism in my left eye, it's not as good as the right eye, so it's been hard to concentrate on seeing clearly. My right eye is almost perfect, but left eye is still blurry, due to the fact that I've a rugby ball shaped eye in the left socket! Right eye is apparently round. Anyway, a couple of new specs on Wednesday will hoping restore my vision to the best it can ever be. Thank feck too, cos I keep getting headaches on the left side...damned astigmatisms!

Anyhoo..have now edited the results.

My humblest apologies Jim! :)
