Heaven or Hell 3

A complete whitewash last week with the Waco Brothers routing Jonathan Wilson by 5 votes to nil
Ernie Goggins went as far as describing Walking on Hell's Roof (Looking at the Flowers) as one of the greatest records in the world ever
I'm not sure that I would go that far but it would have got my vote to.

This week is is London for heaven and Leeds for hell. Something wrong there surely.
In the heaven corner we have The Psychedelic Furs with Heaven from their 1984 album Mirror Moves.
They are up against against Gang of Four with To Hell With Poverty a single from 1981.
Somewhat disappointingly it doesn't contain the lines
To Hell with Poverty
Put another pea in the soup

I'm expecting another clear winner this week. Will anyone prove me wrong?

The Psychedelic Furs - Heaven

Gang of Four - To Hell With Poverty


  1. I'll be a contrarian and go for the Furs

    1. And here's me thinking we were heading for another whitewash

  2. Ooh difficult one, but I'll go to hell with the Gang of Four too.

  3. Ooh, I'm stuck in purgatory this week. I really like both of these bands... I'll go with hell by a whisker.

  4. I'll side with Ernie. I should vote Leeds as it's pretty local gof me, but the Furs take it for me. Maybe I'm getting too old for screeching guitars and shouting.

    1. I suspect that's what's happening to me as well

  5. Heaven for me. And....can I have a go at this....???

  6. Expecting a Sheffielder to vote for Leeds is like imagining Greece and Cyprus giving their 12 points to some country other than each other in the Eurovision Song Contest. It ain't gonna happen so it's the Furs for me!
