    Match-Cut Band/Performer Consensus - list and schedule

    OK, so start naming bands and/or performers you'd like to see under MC scrutiny.

    Personally, I think they should have at least 5 albums, but if others disagree that's totally fine.

    I'll put together a list and schedule after about a week of nominations.

    LIST and SCHEDULE (On going)
    Band
    dates Total Score Best Album Worst Album
    Radiohead 11/03 - 11/09 7.6 OK Computer Pablo Honey
    U2 11/10 - 11/16 7.1 Achtung Baby How To Dismantle...
    The Cure 11/17 - 11/23 8.06 Disintegration NA (not enough votes)
    Brian Eno 11/24 - 11/30 8.07 The Pearl Another Green World (lol...this is so weird)
    Beach Boys 12/01 - 12/07 8.67 Pet Sounds Surf's Up (LLLOOLL!!!) Only two albums had enough votes to count
    Nine Inch Nails 12/08 - 12/14 6.79 Downward Spiral The Slip
    TV On the Radio 12/15 - 12/21
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs 12/22 - 12/28

    I'm sure 4 albums is fine.

    Just want to make sure there are enough to make it interesting and worthwhile.

    I was thinking about the album thing too when I first was thinking of doing this and couldn't quite decide. I'd almost say on a week where we have groups with only four we could do two in the same week. Like do Rage and Yeah Yeahs the same week. But that might also be too much.

    Ben Folds (Five)
    Talking Heads
    Ween

    As time goes on we can throw in a bunch of the usual bands.

    Beck might be interesting.

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds too, if enough people are fans.

These oxen couldn't be transported to anywhere else, so we had to built the entire studio around them. A scene that lasted twenty-something seconds took us a year and a half to prepare."

    OK - I think we have enough bands/performers now to get started.

    A couple of questions:

    1. 1 week per to vote?
    2. For bands like Sugar Cubes/Bork; Pixies/Frank Black - do together, or separate?
    3. Should we keep the completed tally in this thread, and then each band/performer will have their own thread for voting/discussion?
    4. Official releases - LPs and EPs only? How long is an EP? In the '90s, tons of European bands would release a single with 3 B-sides, thus making it an EP. Do these count?

    For some special albums, we might exceptions. For instance - The Beach Boys, SMilE. Bootlegged for years, finally released and completed by Parks and Wilson. I'm going to include the 2004 Wilson release in the B-Boys voting, since it started as a B-Boys album.

    What about famous bootlegs? No? Again, I'm thinking Beach Boys with albums liked Land Locked.

    I think including famous Bootlegs might be a good idea.

    As we get to the performers that I don't know as much about (and there are a lot), I'll leave these exceptions and lists up to the super fans.

    Or, should we only go by official discography at something like All Music? That could get a little boring.

    I've got the schedule up for the rest of 2014: Star with U2, ending with Pink Floyd. That's pretty cool - two of the biggest bands in the world for their time, both having new albums in 2014. Ending the year with Pink Floyd, after they release their final album (next week!) is awesome.

    I just thought it might be a way to flesh out certain threads and cover albums that might otherwise go untouched. But whatever you decide is fine by me.

    You know I think in the regards of bootlegs, EPs, Live albums and such we can vote for them, but it would be more based on if people actually listened. I'm sure there are some good beach boys bootlegs but will they actually get votes? So I'd say go for it.

    Also agreed about some of the mixing things. Like putting Damon Albarn's new album with Blur and maybe Gorillaz as well unless they get their own week.

    I'll shut down Radiohead on the 9th. Davis if you wanna link Radiohead to the top of this thread that would be awesome.

    Also looks like I should listen to my first U2 album today.

    I've never listened to a U2 album because every song of theirs I've heard has been pretty much the worst thing ever but I figured why not so I just checked and it looks like almost all their albums are on Amazon Prime Music.

    I made it 4 songs into Joshua Tree before I had to turn it off. Not for me.
