    *FINAL* Battle of the current bands II

    Been a couple of years since the last one.

    Will just copy and paste Brumby's opening post from there for the rules:

    Any definition of a "current band" is going to be fairly arbitrary, so (unless anyone has violent objections) I'll define one as a band (i.e. no solo artists) who have released an album of new material in the last five years & haven't announced a split. By this definition the reformed Pixies or Crowded House aren't eligible as they've yet to commit any new stuff to vinyl, but (if you were so minded) the equally-reformed Take That would be, as they have released an album of new songs.

    I've no hard & fast ideas about how many bands should be entered (32, 48 or 64 seem the most likely, dependant on uptake) before battle is joined, but to secure a place any band must be seconded to avoid those of you with the more whacky tastes in music entering unworthy groups. Nominate as many as you like, but I'll impose an initial limit of 8 secondings so no-one can hog the nominations that way.

    I'm gonna shock everyone with these nominations:

    Guns N' Roses
    Motley Crue
    Oasis


    GNR & Crue were ineligible last time (Crue hadn't released a whole album since 2000, and Axl was still arguing with lawyers and little tiny studio buttons) but both released albums last year. I don't expect either to win, but they are my nominations.

    Interestingly given the stick I get for liking the, oasis were runners-up last time out

    Second Sigur Ros.

    Nominate Burial and The Hold Steady. Wait, does Burial count, considering that it's (probably) just one dude?

    Crowded House released Time On Earth in 2007, so are eligible this time around, ftr.

    In fact I'll nominate them:

    Crowded House.
