I assume EC is being treated as a singer with a backing band  although that is more than a bit demeaning to Messrs Nieve and Thomas x 2.

Yea, I guess.

They are certainly a fabulous band and were integral to the sound - their sound - from the very beginning.

Same as Springsteen, his reputation was built on the E Street Band.

Yeah I love the original line up and have seen EC more times than I can recall,  and still wish they would all get together again,  but Bruce's book didnt help much.

I would have liked to see the Fall in the list. Lots of dross but the occasional gem and Mark E smith was an ‘interesting’ guy. 

They are and they probably wont get a vote in their tie.

Last time I saw The Fall Smith went off for a brew mid set, after turning the guitarists amp off.

 

Came back about ten/fifteen minutes later and kicked in to Mr Pharmacist.

 

Glorious.

I wasn't saying they wont get a vote based on them as a band. Their opponents will be pretty fucking formidable in this tournament I expect.

Although I'm guessing from your post that they've drawn Led Zeppelin....in which case, maybe not that many votes


If votes are cast for plagiarism cases brought against they’d romp home...
