Fabtious felicitations ya funky funsters! :)

Into round 4 we go....roll 'em up then....and let's see if the ladies can knock us blokes off the podium for a change, eh?!

Let's be 'aving them then, in the typical fasion please, as per usual, much obliged.

Noms for this round closes 10pm Friday 10th Jan, and voting ends
Monday 13th. We'll be back to the normal days after round 5.

I'm gunna have think what to offer up this time....but i've plenty to choose from, for once.

Finally......as usual...i tend to ask this every year, but i mentioned in round one, that if folks wanted to do further rounds after R6...then we can do so, if the demand is there. However..i have realised that very first Themes round of 2020, will be the return of the wildcard round. We could use that as an unofficial round to offer up one more Co2019 nom to it, if folks want to..as i think i'll may do that myself.

I've already added 3 more new albums to my ever growing list of albums to get, just from the first 3 rounds...keep it up..and soon you'll have me declaring bankruptcy! lol!

On a final note.....what's happened to Spacepig of late? He did very well in the summer cream of rounds, but hasn't nom'd anything for these rounds yet? A man who spends vast amounts of his spare time, going to concert after concert in his native country of Ireland..and yet has nothing to nominate for the latest Cream of rounds? *As Victor Meldrew* "I don't believe it!" He must have a song or two up his sleeve! C'mon matey..gives us something to pulverise our brains with please! :)

Anyhoo.....see yous all on Friday then.

Val H. | 13923 comments I will kick off with a young Aussie who, as I mentioned on another thread, is something of rock royalty locally. His father, Chris Wilson, was a stalwart of Aussie blues up until his death last year. His mother is Sarah Carroll, also a noted singer-songwriter here.

Can someone check the link for me? There is a live version available but I think the recorded one is better.

Much to like here - and it's going to cost me! Apologies to Belle & Sebastian and Bloke Music.

Anthony Reynolds - 4 (bought the album from Rocket Girl - £15)
Renee Wahl and the Sworn Secrets - 3 (would buy the album but eBay is too expensive, Zon says "not available", Discogs has never heard of it and her own website wants every last ounce of your details before it will tell you what shipping costs are - so, on the back burner for now)
Lost Ragas - 2 (been meaning to buy this for ages; will do)
Marc Almond & Ian Anderson - 1

Ian doesn't sing, so not sure why the hatred, haha! Obviously Marc wanted flute, but flute as Ian plays it, which you'd be unlikely to get from some random session guy.

Are these s/h sellers not available to you? Would it be feasible for me to get one (about £5) and send to you?

If so, I've got Val's address, save you messing about with emails. Can't do it myself as I can't get out to post things and have to get someone to do it for me.

Hi Brass. Now that we have our own Zon in Oz, it seems we are barred from using any other nationality. I tried to purchase the first two listed in marketplace and got the dreaded message - "Unable to post to Australia". I'm fairly sure this is Amazon's restriction, not the sellers'. I appreciate your offer and am happy to take you up on it. Do you have a PayPal account I could pay you with once you know the cost of postage? You can contact me at valelynnatgmaildotcom.

Thanks for your help Lez. Hopefully Brass can contact me as I've indicated above but good to know we have you as reserve.

theDuke | 5607 comments Tardy is my middle name at the moment! I feel asleep watching the snooker. I'm still asking myself...why was watching the snooker?!

Anyway.....another round has ended, time to divvy up the metal medallion once again.....

...and yours truely picks up a gold one, for 'Into The Abyss' by Valley Of The Sun. 2 points fewer on 15, 'Have You Heard From Her Lately?' by Anthony Reynolds finishes in 2nd place, so the silver gong goes to Sera; and finally, 'Don't Light My Fire' by Otoboke Beaver, awards KJS the bronze gong.

Congrats to the winners....and thank you those who voted for mine. And there's no wooden spooners this week either..wicked! :)
