Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Next up, Tim's latest suggestions, old time UK rockers Wishbone Ash. Formed way back in 69, they are still on the go in at least two forms that I know of. There are an absolute bucket-load of albums to choose from so go an choose wisely.

As ever, noms close 10 pm Sunday. I've had a few crazy weekends on the trot, but now, a short rest period before it all kicks off gain. That means I may have a chance to get the noms closed on time - no guarantees though :-)

PS, Tech may not be conventionally 'enthusiastic' but there's no denying there's a bilious passion in his rantings.


message 15: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments A respectable enough 12 noms for the Ash then, giving us 4 votes each again.

Voting to close at 10 pm Thursday, but at that point of time, I will be off getting my head mashed by Bell Witch, so assuming I pull through, I will close when I get home.

Noms are here:

The King Will Come

Phoenix

And here's the playlist:

One of the first bands I saw live, when they supported Gillan in 1982. Blowin' Free was the first song I requested on the radio, a BBC local station. The guy played the song, but right at the end of his show so it got chopped after the solo. Grrr!

Lez | 7490 comments Anyone remember BOF on the old ‘zon? He was a big Wishbone fan and used to organize the annual convention.

Lez | 7490 comments Hell’s teeth! I’m sorry. I changed my scores as I was writing them and a grand cock-up ensued. Good job there’s someone with more than half a brain checking up. ;-)


message 30: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments No idea who that someone with half a brain would be Lez.

So, the die is cast - I am not sure that any new fans have been won, but I thought there were some really good tracks there.

The winner, again way out ahead, the Duke, with Phoenix. Heading off the pack to grab the silver, it's Sj with Ballad of The Beacon. And the bronze this week gets split between SussexWelsh, David and Val.

theDuke | 5677 comments Woohoo! And i picked that one on a whim too! But apologies for not getting around to voting Tim, was going to do it today, but i've been out all day, only just got back. Nevermind.

He's still around on the Facebook group

message 34: by Tech XXIII (new)

I know a person who expended much energy into loathing of one band or another (not Wishbone Ash) who now has box sets of their albums. You'll come round in the end, tech! 😉😉😉

Depends on whether your mind opens through life or remains stuck in a rigid rut (and some folks' ruts are more like concrete lined chasms) I guess? Do you get much light down there Tech? ;¬)

SussexWelsh | 5316 comments Oh blast. Missed another vote. Sorry :-(

Tech XXIII  | 6578 comments "Do you get much light down there Tech?"

as you well know, the light pours out of me! so yeah, enough to see what i'm doing 'n'that!

in fact, i have decided to retire from prog/rock baiting. it's not big and it's not clever, and i'm probably even boring myself with it now. look at how i'm refraining from commenting on sussex's good fortune there. not a word! :)
