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.
