Curatorfest Qualifier 9! CURATED by Andy R
Read and comment

This group is from Andy R and it’s one where either there’s no theme or – just as possible – I don’t know the theme. But who needs a theme when you have bangers from Mission Of Burma, REM, Aimee Mann and the Real McCoy slugging it out?

RESULTS: Mission of Burma and the Real McCoy dodge the hives to land in the ANCIENT poll.

Curatorfest Qualifier 5! CURATED by Andy H
Read and comment

Our fifth group comes from Andy R and it’s a broadly refugee-themed group for a poll raising money for refugee and international aid charities. 2016’s “Running (Refugee Song)” was written specially to bring awareness to the issue – it’s joined here by thematically linked tracks from Depeche Mode, R.E.M. and Tears For Fears, all of whom we last saw in our 1985 tournament!

RESULTS: A pretty clear win for Tears For Fears and REM sees both bands into the ANCIENT poll Round 1.
