If there's a guy who might be involved in this thread who also started but did not finish the TV draft, they're asking if you're going to finish.  If not, Doug B would like to make your remaining picks.  You might wish to pop in there and let him know, or let me know here and I'll post for you there just in case you might not quite be feeling like yourself, if you know what I mean.

It's customary to boldface Doug B

I saw Spandau Ballet, reformed, putting on a show on some television channel beaming in a festival from Europe. They were surprisingly good. "True" still held weight about forty years later.

56.8 or 12 - Romeo Void - Never Say Never (First Wave)

One of the many annoying things about 2020 is the monotony.  My 2019 life wasn't exactly a thrill a minute but there was the occasional event to break things up a bit.  Now I don't go anywhere or do much of anything.  The most noteworthy thing that happened this month isn't all that exciting but it involves Romeo Void.

My longtime friend Tina finally moved out of the City and as any urban apartment dweller knows, that means emptying the junk out of the storage space.  I've known Tina for over 35 years and her partner Paul for about 10 but I never knew Paul used to be married to Deborah Iyall of Romeo Void.  They were getting rid of a bunch of stuff including a couple of his ex's paintings.  Somehow Mrs. Eephus ended up with custody of a couple of original Deborah Iyall landscapes. I have no idea what we're going to do with them but they haven't gone to our storage space yet.

The Kemp brothers have gone on to successful acting careers.

Each one of my three daughters has a special song during the time that they were born that I heard on the radio during my run(s) to the hospital (or in the delivery room).  This one is my daughter's Sara's song, I gave her this CD as part of her time capsule box she opened last year when she turned 21...

All cool, all cool, but can we have words about your lack of dust cover?

Lol, I have one, but don't use it.. I use the table a lot in the attic record and the backing cover connections are not the best so it winds up not staying up I just decide to leave the ones I use every day with no cover.

I'm a bit obsessed, I have 5 tables in the house, my family room is a beatles pro-ject iii table , I use that every day and also keep the cover off.

I just fixed the cartridge on the vintage Realstic Lab 400 table I found at a tag Sale last year for $65, I was using that in the Attic until the Shure cartridge I had on there stopped working on the Right Channel, so I moved the U-turn up there (which had given me a lot of trouble as well, but finally got it perfect by sending it back to U-turn for a new l/r connection).  I now use the Realstic in my basement  where I do keep the cover on it when not in use...

I have a Pioneer PL 41 vintage table I use daily in my home office, it has a built in cover, but I keep it up, lol.

I also have a vintage Technics table in my garage, that one I keep the cover on ;)

Cool stuff. Love this. I remember when Pro-ject was doing other Beatles tables, too. Like this one. Great stuff.

Round 57

3 Strange Days - School of Fish (90s on 9)

Uh oh. Now I'm gone done and corrected you. There is no 90s on 9 for Round 57. Perhaps you're thinking of a different round? I dunno. You have Round 56 for First Wave, so maybe you're on that day in your head...

fixed - yes I was confused. Deleted the First Wave and used the 90s song for Round 56.

Back to the show. I'm having just a time of it picking a song. I'll go with the title track to one of the better punk albums of 2016 from Toys That Kill. 

Round 57.xx

Category: Faction

Song: Sentimental Ward

Artist: Toys That Kill

A rousing sing along of utter nonsense, this song fits the punk bill well. I have no idea what he's saying at the end (is it a proper name?) but it sounds good.

Doesn't Doug owe like 40 here?

I owe a ton here, sorry all.  We were camping all of Thanksgiving week and the internet was spotty at best.  I'll try to catch up.  You can't really "search" the excel (or I don't know how) so if I make a pick someone has made let me know.

Ok I found one punk band doing something kind of interesting. Not many punk rock songs that are a tribute to the power and importance of art.

The Comes Alive! mix is 4 hours and 6 minutes.

Usually in the past GP drafts it's been a genre that I wasn't too familiar with that became my favorite mixes - ie power trios or power pop (i think that's what it was).   This draft it's the Comes Alive, Deep Cuts, and Lithium that are my faves.
