That Crusaders track really gets my mirror ball spinning and it also has Charlotte Gainsbourg so

Well, this was fairly easy for A in the end:

A - 34; B - 25

I feel for B, as it was my favourite list in the tournament, and I was starting to believe it could go all the way. Bad luck, then, Rank Bajin; your taste is too cool for BCB! On the other hand, hearty congrats to A; you're in the final!

I was surprised this one wasn't more nip and tuck, a lot of votes seemd to go to A very quickly.
Well done to A though and unlucky Campbell. Yours was my favourite of the semi-finalists.

Ach well, so it's the end for the Behemoth. Best ever run for me, so no complaints. Of course, I prefer my list to my opponents but it Isa very good list, so fair enough. Well done Sir!

Many thanks to Andrew for his sterling organising efforts once again. Also, thanks to those who've made supportive comments. As Ive said elsewhere, these really elevate the Cup, so really well done Buddha!

Not quite but it was looking quite good for a while.

Unlucky Campbell, it could've went either way in this match - two great lists.
I was beginning to think we might have to do a guard of honour at the next Scottish JU.

Having read Matthew's comments on the other SF, I should say that my next 5 were definitely going to be cupicide choices - i.e. I was considering going for Beastie Boys (which'd mean I'd lose PB's vote for sure), Scott Walker (which is definitely Cup kryptonite) and probably some mid period R.E.M. I hadn't really thought all this through, mind you.

Anyway, good to see the EPRA had my back!

I think so but he was probably under duress. Or something.
