Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

That Shack track was surprisingly good, I'd pretty much dismissed them because they were scouse and liked by The NME, so presumed they were another chirpy jangle-pop band. It's much more Nick Drake than Las. Which is good. Quite a strong selection by A, I've never heard any of those particular tracks before, and although Black Merda didn't float my boat, gotta appreciate the effort of choosing less well known tracks.

When I first joined imdb, I'm pretty sure every other post was about Shuggie Otis, and I never bothered checking him out. That track hasn't done anything to persuade me I was wrong. Hey, who knew I wasn't that funky? The Jackets were ok though.

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

The Television track may be too easy but it's so damn good. I like the Jackets number though it's not doing anything new (those eyes damn near lost it though... sometimes the video can be harmful). And Shuggie is just wonderful.... so going B

Did enjoy the Black Merda tune though... going to look into them more. Shack as well... there may be more there.

I'll echo Fish's sentiments regarding Shack. In this match it stood out the most as the unexpected gem. Despite its strength I have to say I find list B a little more consistent through its duration, so B it is. The Shuggie Otis is also new to me and pretty good!

The Television track is good, and the Jackets was ok till she started "singing", but overall it's an A

I've never really listened to Shack before. I liked this one. The one mediocre track proves the difference between the lists here: not sure what the Jackets are doing in otherwise good-to-great company.

You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it.

I like this Shack track very much, but overall, B is better

Wish these two had their shit together; would've liked to hear more from both of them

B for Shuggie, but just barely.

The great psych soul face off ! In which I'm going for Black Merda despite loving that particular Shuggie track. In fact A had this sewn up before that as I found that Jackets track all but unlistenable.

Shack is a bit wet – Good Dusty pick though – Black Merda is overrated

The Jackets show signs of life so
