Shall we do this in the same vein as @BMS1’s monthly threads? So basically…set a deadline for all nominations to be made. Then from that date…we all vote for 3 from the list and then add up the votes to find a winner. Don’t mind doing the counting.

Anyway, my nominations:

Slowdive - Slowdive
Laura Marling - Semper Femina
Forest Swords - Compassion
Richard Dawson - Peasant
Idles - Brutalism

Also that Slowdive album is surprising it wasn’t listed.

I wish they’d reveal the list of all the bands that submitted their records/paid the £200 fee. Would be interesting to deduce who didn’t submit records.

Usually, it was a big DiS thing

This can just be another voting thread
