Memphis v Nashville 5
A victory for the Indigo Girls with Nashville last week partly on their own merits put also partly as a protest vote against Marc Cohen and the ubiquitous Walking in Memphis.
That means that we are back to all square with the score now being Memphis 2 Nashville 2.
I originally said it would be the first to 5 but I'm going to try and string it out to first to 10.This may depend of whether I have enough material particularly from the Nashville camp.
This week we go from mainstream AOR to something a lot more left field.
This week in the Memphis corner we have the mighty Pixies with Letter to Memphis from their wonderful Trompe Le Monde.
Black Francis and the gang are up against Mojo Nixon and Jello Biafra with Let's Go Burn Ole Nashville Down. A song from their album Prairie Home Invasion although I have it from the glorious Cowpunks compilation
A trickier one this week but I am going for Mojo and Jello as they are having fun whereas the Pixies are far too earnest and serious for my liking. Others, of course, may choose to disagree.
Next week some songs courtesy of the Original Surfer of the Zeitgeist.
