    If you wanna keep it ultra anonymous - everyone could post me their CDrs and then I could burn them onto one or two cds and Pepsi challenge them at the next Brillo meet.

    Because of my exposure to the tracks, I could voluntarily abstain from voting, I don't mind, it's gonna be killer anyways!

    However, if my suggestion seems quite insane, we'll just Pepsi challenge whatever is brought along, just be discreet and lay the Cds label down by the decks - we'll then shuffle and start scoring!

    Man, do you reckon this is what the EU is like when making decisions?

      What I'ld add to that Nick is that we should be Pepsi challenging 3 tracks offered by one individual, as per the OG suggestion.

      So whoever is participating, will have one of his selections placed on the final comp.

        I'm not able to burn my tracks on to CDR. Can we send you a tape Nick?

            Okay, we can Pepsi challenge in batches of three. I'll super careful to list the batches as A1, A2, A3 - B1, B2 etc...

            Or do you think we should rate them as a whole, and let the best tunes get through by their merit alone...

            either way is kind of democratically inclusive...

            Any thoughts?

              I think we should be choosing 1 track from 3 presented per person.

              Firstly, this was the direction that Bigdaddydan brought to the table, and just seems to make the most sense.

              Secondly, someone could potentially have all 3 of their tracks included on the comp if we go on merit alone. If we're stumping up a specific fee per person to pay for this, I think each contributor should have one track on the comp.

              Thirdly, I'ld be really surprised if all of us didn't like at least one of the tracks presented by one person. There's just too much tuneage out there, Vulture fellas!

              When all the tracks are in, then as you mentioned Nick, we sit down and compile it to a specific order.

                i'm with greg on this one. one guaranteed track per entrant.

                the idea is to encourage as many people to get involved as possible, regardless of how many records you have.

                if (very unlikely) someone submits all 3 tracks that don't fit with the rest of the comp, then they get another chance to go away and find some more based on what they've heard from the other selections.

                nick, i'll sort out the CDR then ring you and arrange to hook up maybe over a beer later this week?

                  Cool! let's do that...

                  Now does everyone want to post me the CDs, tapes and minidiscs? Plenty of time before the 16th...

                  Like I said, least this way it remains as anonymous as possible and ensures that it doesn't matter if someone forgets their CDr, seeing as most are coming straight from work, I'd imagine that scenario entirely possible when you're dreary eyed and about to commute to another Monday at the office...!

                  Ed, Greg and anyone else who will miss June's Brillo can simply listen to the CD at the next meet, make their vote and finalise the shortlist... easy peasy!

                    oh yeah, i meant to ask you all your opinion on this:

                    by UK music, do we mean:
                    - UK-only pressings?
                    - music composed/recorded by UK musicians?
                    - music recorded at a UK studio?

                    just want to be clear about the boundaries for pickin' choons...

                        I've been interpreting this as 'Music made in the UK' - barring Library music, cos it's just too big a hot bed of potatoes.

                        Not a 'UK pressing' of a specific title released in another country.

                        There's plenty to be getting on with between those goalposts - if anybody feels we could open the posts a little wider (ie include UK pressings) then holla asap.

                        Nick - I think I'll have my 3 down later on tonight so should be able to mail these to you before the weekend.

                          Coolio Greg!

                          I agree with the goalposts (or maybe we should call this 'the roadmap' to keep up with current affairs)

                          Especially since this project should be quintessentially British, I personally will be eager to hear anything sung with a strong regional accent...

                              Where did we get to genre-wise ? Anything goes or are there limits ? Poodle haired South Wales glam metal ?

                                I wouldn't worry too much about that... the genre is Brillo!
