Container Drivers FTW!

I will take high octane snare-fueled ass-grabbery over dirgy split-sided snozz any day of the week, month or year.

Containers clatter. Winter numbs.

Clear choice here.

Goho, just out of curiosity, which of these was the seeded one? It seems a tough match for the containers and their drivers . . . though hopefully their speed-fueled strength will allow them to beat out somnolent Icelandic reflections.

TCD was the one seeded here. (366 v. 356 votes accumulated by Winter.)

I was especially pleased to see these two drawn together, as they were ranked 4 & 5 (in terms of comp. votes accumulated) after The Round Of 16.

A fitting match-up, I think!

Before the Brighton gig, a stranger sat next to me in a pub asked which song should win the cup & (not having thought about it) I said Winter, but today I'm into CD.

Apart from Mister Rode and Lay of the Land, Winter is the best Fall song ever. Fact!

Especially when you consider Winter got an absolute stinker of a draw in the Round Of 256 (v. Elastic Man) which may well have cost it the 20-or-so votes that prevents it being seeded here. (And, if it wins here, a possible seeding in the semis.)

Much as I love "Winter" I don't really want it to repeat in the Cup.

It's too good to vote against here, though, and I love "Container Drivers," too.

It's Container Drivers for me.

I like Winter but it doesn't get my juices flowing.

I think winter is now my pick of this final 8, meaning that Middle Mass would have been I suppose!

This is getting a bit serious now. :o

I've loved Winter throughout, but I'm going for Container Drivers simply for that amazing Peel Session 3, anything off of that could have won. :wub:

Obvs the Peel version of Winter was special too. :(

Both undeniably great. Neither of them quite the very best for me. Winter, by a fraction.

Container Drivers just about edges it for me here - so I'll go for that I reckon...
