No chance.

 

They weren't a band, they were an esamble of around 20 Cuban musicians put together for one record.

Well 2 records, since  A Toda Cuba Le Gusta by Afro-Cuban All Stars is the same line-up and producers (and in my humble opinion is even better). Plus live and compilation. But yes, not a band as such, but they toured as a Buena Vista Social Club.

Some fucking record though and arguably better than any album at least 20 of the selected bands have released. 

But they are still not a band (and the album includes covers of famous Cuban songs)

Written by some of the members, to be fair.

Right they aren't going in. They are great though. 

 

The Band are in. Ok 2 left. 

 

How many voted for Ladysmith Black Mambazo? More of a singing group though no? 

 

Dubliners? 

 

Did someone actually vote for Roxette or did I imagine that?

We can only hope. On top of bein shit they are a duo.

 

Still boggles the mind how Third World does not get in this.

I'm happy for them to go in. Did Mook mention them as well?

Why? 


Well they were not allowed in the UK one, and not in the US one, so you would think they were allowed in this one.

 

Its not like they are from Jupiter or Mars.
