Spacepig Pig | 1371 comments Next up, Fishy Jim's latest nom, North Sea Radio Orchestra. I know zilcho about the band so, shamelessly stolen from Wiki: 'The ensemble is notable for its post-modern fusion of Romantic music and later twentieth century forms, and for its bridging of the worlds of contemporary classical music, British folk music, London art rock and poetry'. There we go then, hoity toity stuff methinks.

As far as I can work out, 5 albums to choose from, no idea how youtube does for links but I'm sure you'll all find one for your chosen song.

Noms close 10 pm Sunday so best get searching. Just a note on the voting for this one, Come next Thursday, I will be off in Holland getting zapped out of my brains at the Roadburn festival, so the Duke has offered to stand in and close it all down and hand over the winnings. Thanks a mill for that Duke.

theDuke | 5577 comments No worries Spacepig...i may call on you next month for a favour returned..as i hope to be going to see a band in Cardiff, on a Weds eve in mid May. But for now, happy to step in and keep the music flowing! :)

Voting ends at 10 pm on Thursday when deputy Duke will step in and hand out the winner's prizes. Possible we may have a slight switch around of the running order for the next couple of noms, but we'll leave that to the Duke.

Have a great week and I'll catch up when I get back from Roadburn.

theDuke | 5577 comments Okee doke then, here be me wearing the DJ headphones for tonight...and it's time on the musical marine ensemble that is British Sea Radio.

And wouldn't you know it..we've got a tie for 1st place!

After a countback, i can announce the winner of this round with 3 times max points, it's Mitte Der Welt, so congratulations to SussexWelsh..you get the top spot on the podium.

Narrowingly missing out on the gold, is Val's choice The British Road, reaping 1 max point, so she gets to stand in the middle, &..finally the round's nominator, who got his nom Move Eastward, Happy Earth, just in the wee nick of time, takes the final step on the podium, having scored one point fewer on 8.

Not a bad group, a bit different to the usual bag. I didn't like all of them, but 3 or 4 were quite listenable.
