Well, this was certainly the first time I'd ever voted for Half Man Half
Biscuit. Vatican Broadside had a pretty broad appeal!

I was surprised that the Aislers Set didn't get in, and it would have been
nice to have seen some SI Futures in there as well, but what the heck...
I was also v surprised that Last Nite was the highest placed Strokes song.

On a related note, does anyone else prefer the version of "Eighties Fan"
available at the (very fine, doffs cap) Radio Plus site
(http://www.radio.plus.com/festive.html) to the Stuart Murdoch produced
version? If anyone knows where I can get the "Japan only Rare UK Bird EP"
from which the original is taken, do let me know!
