It’s the seventh qualifying group in The Lux Familiar Cup – in which readers of The Half Man Half Biscuit Lyrics Project choose their favourite songs of all time. Voting on this album closed on Sat 26 March 2011, and the results from this qualifying group are below. Some 479 votes were cast; not for the first time we had a runaway winner, but we also had one of the tightest-ever battles for second place and automatic qualification to the Round of 32. One for the studio team to get their teeth into, I suspect. It’s still possible for the plucky loser to qualify, but by no means guaranteed.
Qualified for last 32
1. A Country Practice (20.3%)
2. Secret Gig (11.5%)
In the race for the fastest losers:
3. Four Skinny Indie Kids (11.1%)
4. You’re Hard (10.2%)
5. Turn A Blind Eye (9.6%)
The voting may be over, but I’m sure the post-match analyses are only just beginning.
