The GREAT Joe Strummer SURVIVOR Poll of 2019: Announcements/General Discussion/Results

Post by Flex » 25 Jun 2019, 11:23am

Polls will begin closing shortly, so if you haven't voted in Round 1 yet, go forth and do so!

I'm going to use this thread to post results as well as any other announcements, comments, etc. that don't fit into one of the specific threads. Feel free to utilize this thread to chastise me (or, better yet, yourselves) about how badly we're fucking up these decisions.

I've literally just heard it for the first time. The bass line and sound was quite nice, everything else was wank.
