Hi fellas! :wavey: Welcome to the 1st MTF Favourite Bands Contest. The idea of this championship is to know which is MTF's favourite music artist, by having the most nominated in a 64 draw.

The dynamic is quite similar to the PopCon/ACC: the whole of MTF decides who is the most liked music artist around here.

[...]

Have fun! :music:
hey folks! We're starting the voting now. Two Qualy Rounds to complete the Main Draw of 64 musicians. First, these fifteen matches. You have one day to vote... Deadline, for now, is Friday 00:00 GMT. Same way to vote as in ACC/PopCon, bold the one you want to vote.

Re: MTF Favourite Musicians Contest - Voting Thread

Fleetwood Mac - Slowdive go team Shoegaze
John Coltrane - Tears For Fears
The Temptations - Bruce Dickinson

Daft Punk - Rolling Stones draw from hell. Thanks a lot, Rigging Draw Machine. It would be outrageous if the Stones missed the MD.
Portishead - The Clash and another one. :sad:
dEUS - 2 Pac
Guano Apes - Velvet Underground

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - St Vincent poor Annie. Nick will deservedly win this one, one-sided as hell, one's a legend, the other's just making her way to the top. Still, go listen to "Strange Mercy" you lot.
Broken Social Scene - Genesis the original Canadian troupe.
Tricky - Mercury Rev
Ivan Rebroff - Arcade Fire sorry, Rebroff. There's no way we're losing this in QR1 :cool:

Lamb - The Kinks :eek:
Jethro Tull - Pedro the Lion
Muse - Tool for those first four albums. I think they're pretty much done (listened to the first two songs from the new album and... well, they're out of crazy stuff, just going through the motions now.). But it was a great ride, thanks for the memories (and introducing me to Rachmaninoff)

Re: MTF Favourite Musicians Contest - Voting Thread

ok, done. Results:

Fleetwood Mac 8 - 7 Slowdive
John Coltrane 9 - 6 Tears For Fears
The Temptations 7 - 4 Bruce Dickinson

Daft Punk 5 - 11 Rolling Stones
Portishead 6 - 10 The Clash
dEUS 5 - 6 2 Pac
Guano Apes 4 - 10 Velvet Underground

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 10 - 3 St Vincent
Broken Social Scene 3 - 8 Genesis
Tricky 5 - 3 Mercury Rev
Ivan Rebroff 2 - 10 Arcade Fire

Lamb 5 - 9 The Kinks
Jethro Tull 11 - 2 Pedro the Lion
Muse 4 - 10 Tool
U2 8 - 7 Aphex Twin

Some surprising results imo. I didn't think Muse would lose to Tool, and by such a margin... guess the last album really hurt them. Aphex Twin/Slowdive almost got the upset, but were just this close. The rest, expected.
