And so to the fifth qualifying group of 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 12 March 2011, and here are the results. 463 votes were cast, and we had an incredibly tight battle for the second automatic qualification slot, with Steel Hearts seeing off Tour Jacket by just 3 votes. And so the stark lights of the hall came on, and we filtered out into the night…

Qualified for last 32

1. Friday Night And The Gates Are Low (17.5%)
2. Even Men With Steel Hearts (15.3%)

In the race for the fastest losers:

3. Tour Jacket With Detachable Sleeves (14.7%)
4. Sponsoring The Moshpits (9.1%)
5=. Fear My Wraith and
Sensitive Outsider (8.4%)

After the break, much to discuss back in the Channel 5 Studio, from where we haven’t been doing the commentary, honestly.
