The women's tournament is fucking shite, has to be said.

 

The likes of Mavis Staples going out to Lady Gaga doesn't help like but most of these ties really are a shit sandwich.

Speaking of hair, is Crystal Gayle in the tournament?

Yes, that’s right, they are sisters. I’m not sure who the oldest is, though.

Yeah, the last four or five ties have been pure shit. Difficult to pick a winner when you'd rather eat one of Ardja's breakfasts than listen to either artist.

They’re only shit if you’re not into the artists involved. 

Well, they're only shit if you think they're shit. Shirley?

So what are you saying, men are much better at making music?

Yes. That and there being fewer decent artists omitted in the male competition. I think the 64 was a fairly decent reflection of the best 64 male artists.

There was hardly any decent ties when I did the draw. A lot of the entrants only got a few votes so for the first round or two it's not going to be that exciting. I did say I only wants to have 32 in it from the start but people asked for more. 

 

You're only crying because someone you preferred has gone out. To call it shit is a bit unfair. Just realise Mook that not everyone likes the same music as you and that you might not be the oracle of sound that you think you are. 

 

In other words, shove it up your hoop.

Think that's a byproduct of going from people's original 7.

 

Think some better artists would have pushed these back if everyone had submitted an extra 3.

I don't think any of it is your fault Stig, I think 32 was probably about right.

 

I'm talking about the tournament in general, not anyone specific going out. I only have two Mavis Staple solo albums & one of them is patchy. Is there anyone on here who thinks the female tournament has been good?

Laurie Anderson was being interviewed on 6 music the other week. She makes mostly unlistenable indulgent shite in the name of art these days. Still better than the pouting droid though.

The men's tournament had Shaking fucking Stevens in the first round.

Unlike most here, it seems, I like both. Laurie Anderson had an exceptional string of albums in the 80s/90s where she bridged pop, poetry and the avant garde. Of course, I realize that’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but at least it’s original, which is more than can be said of most mentioned here. Lana del Rey’s latest, Norman Fucking Rockwell, is shockingly good, in a Once Upon a Time in Hollywood-way. I’d never bothered listening to her before that, but now I’m actually looking forward to what she does next.

Not great so far but will probably get once it narrows down

I think it's been fucking boring. It should get better though. 

 

I might just pick 32 artists for the last one (Non UK/US bands) myself. Saves me the hassle of writing everyones obscure nominations down that fucking nobody else gives a flying shite about.
