Spacepig Pig | 1371 comments So, another one that I know practically nothing about, which may be understandable as Wiki tells me that although they have had success in their native Australia, they have yet to make much of an impact elsewhere, let's see if this round changes that :-)

If Wiki is correct, and who am I to doubt it, there have only been two albums and a handful of singles, so make sure to get your noms in early to avoid the rush.

Usual rule, noms in by 10 pm Sunday evening, remember to post a link to your song and finish off the game by coming back to vote before next Thursday night.

My first weekend with no gigs for quite a while, so I might get the garden tidied up, unless it rains of course. Does anyone know any effective rain dances?

Spacepig Pig | 1371 comments The participation rate has dropped a little bit over the last few weeks. Come on, try and show some support until your own fave comes around.

Eight it is though for Gang of Youths, meaning it's the 3 point scoring system again.

As ever, voting closes 10 pm Thursday evening, no late votes counted.

Here's the playlist:

Have a great week folks, see you back here Thursday night.

theDuke | 5577 comments I think some folks maybe busy doing other things of late..themes managed 13 noms for the last round.....but i'm sure it'll pick up again, when Sussex, Lez, and whomever else is currently 'away', are back again.

Excuse me Duke, I am here and participating. I even put in a Swans nomination via Spacepig while I was away at the EOTR. :-)

Val H. | 13433 comments Sorry Duke, I thought I'd refreshed the page before voting.

However, I think your weary brain has assigned your votes wrongly.

Hope it's correct now.

Spacepig Pig | 1371 comments One point deducted from each of Sera's scores due to the fact that we only have the 3 point scoring system.

Spacepig Pig | 1371 comments And there we have it, 9 voters for the 9 noms, good to see.

No doubts about the winner this week, Tech is back on top with Let Me Down Easy. Five points behind, but still nabbing the silver, SussexWelsh's nom, Do Not Let Your Spirit Wane. And we have a bronze for Tim with Restraint And Release.

A few nods of approval there for Val's latest nom, can't see them ever making their way into my collection though, sorry Val


message 26: by Val (new)

Val H. | 13433 comments Thanks to all who nominated and voted. I'm not their biggest fan but I try to nominate Australian performers who may not be well known in the northern hemisphere so that we're all trying something (perhaps) new and (perhaps) different. A good result methinks!


message 27: by Collette (new)

Collette | 4164 comments Unlike a few of the other artists lately, I really enjoyed this one. Already saved both albums into my Spotify library. Cheers Val. 😁

didn't get round to voting, but it wouldn't have altered the result - i'd have still won, and isn't that the most important thing?

With you it's not so much the winning as the talking fart? …. damn predictive text!
