    You should do lush but it's only a test of how well it does lush. That's all I'm saying. Obviously you're gonna play some lush, that's a given.

    Yo, Fireybum, is this in reference to the forthcoming Stoke bake-off, of bake-offs in general? If it's the latter, then this shouldn't be in Community Network

    How utterly dare you insult me like that

    It is specifically about the Stoke meeting although should give pointers for future events.

    Ok, I'll amend the thread title to reflect that. It's just that this section of the forum is strictly for arranged member bake-offs, rather than general discussion of bake-offs

    Ok, so i voted

    Yello - any track Great production and SQ (even though im really not that keen on them)
    Dire Straits - Private investigations, Lots of atmospheric noise. Shoes walking across a hardwood floor etc.
    Dave Brubeck - Take Five

    I do think a good Thin Lizzy track like "Rosalie" is needed. need to know if the phonostage can handle the grit in the guitar sound SO i'll substitute Dave for Thin Lizzy - Any Track
