Damn, no time for anything other than a 15 sec snatch of each ...

2. Lambchop?

6. obv a cover of Virginia Plain, but no idea who by.

7. sounds like Robert Wyatt, although ...

8. does too.

9. presumably Aries, but no idea on song.

10. The Leo choice, but again, beyond me.

Pathetic, I know, but I gave away so many points last week, I'll scrabble for any I can get back!

I'd like to take back what I said about Snow Patrol being rubbish. I just listened to Chasing Cars and was very moved by it. It was, however, the Donk remix.

Shoey said...

Congrats, Blimpy! The Shoeteens want you to 'Spill that remix. Some good tunes on the latest SP too. We'll make you a Bedwetter fan yet. Will sort out the pointage later - off for a few brews first.

My poor aching head makes that DsD 5, Shane 10 so far.

Japanther said...

Fantastic news Blimpy! Congrats! Fingers crossed eh? When are the results announced?

ToffeeBoy said...

@ blimpy - it's in the bag! How could you not win???

@ shoey - track 6 is Robert Wyatt's Little Red Robin Hood Hit The Road from the album Rock Bottom. The track features the voice of Ivor Cutler. Not sure what the zodiac connection is though ...

saneshane said...

theres a mix of windowlicker in there- Aphex Twin (gemini)

but I can't find any Mountain goats for capricorn

and it'll be Mark Stewart - Scorpio.

I'm done.

saneshane said...

Mr. Crabby.

Shoey said...

Are you talking to me or GF? Oh, that was an answer, my bad.

nilpferd said...

best of luck, Blimpy!!

Shoey, I did listen but, not surprisingly, have never heard any of these tracks before. I did quite like numbers 4 and 5 though, be interesting to see what they turn out to be.

Shoey said...

Nilp, kind of you not to say you didn't like 10 of them.

Shoegazer said...

Bah, Yahoo player doesn't seem to be working. anyhow pts update TB 1, DsD 5, Shane 17

Abahachi said...

At the risk of making a complete fool of myself... Virginia = Virgin = Virgo? Otherwise, not the faintest beginnings of a clue about any of this.

ShivSidecar said...

"Virginia Plain" is by either SpizzOil, SpizzEnergi or Athletico Spizz '80. I claim one one-hundred-and-eighth of a point.

Shoey said...

Thanks for playing all - will stick the answers up later.
