As always. Here’s mine. This was tough because I like so many of these acts. In the end I had to see where the most amount of affection was. These acts make music which resonates a little bit more than some of the others. It was hard…
For me it had to be Aphex Twin as my winner.

So tough to leave out Nick Cave. That was agonising. I need a(nother) long lie down.

Just cos it’s Sunday night and I am blanking out the prospect of work tomorrow, my top 5 in the Cup Winner’s Cup wouldn’t have made my own Top 5 (but probably might have been in my next 5).

The Sundays
Kate Bush
Twilight Sad
Radio Dept
