Curated Group #7 in this tournament is on the theme of WORK, and comes from Sarah C. Heaven 17 are slaves to the grind; Tetsuya Kimoro gives a more optimistic spin; the Ramones embrace flexible working and Sparks quiet quit. Two will find themselves unemployed next round…

RESULTS: It’s one into the ANCIENT poll (Heaven 17!) and one into the MODERN poll (Sparks!)

Here’s our 6th curated group, from Twitter’s own @spimtobley, and the theme is SISTER ACTS – four groups made up of sisters. Not only is there a wild genre mix here, it’s a pretty globe-spanning bunch too – the Lijadu Sisters from Nigeria, Ireland’s Nolans, and from America there’s 702 (Nevada) and P.S.Eliot (Alabama).

RESULTS: The sisters who progress are The Nolans and 702 – both into the ANCIENT Poll Round 1.

Qualifier C6! Curated by Spimtobley

LIJADU SISTERS - "Come On Home" (YouTube)

THE NOLANS - "Attention To Me" (YouTube)

702 - "Where My Girls At" (YouTube)
