First topic message reminder :

I'm going to put together a Music GOAT/World Cup in the coming weeks dependent upon interest on it.
Every day 4/5 random acts will be drawn together with the top two going through to the next round, eventually it will be whittled down to a final and the winner decided by you the v2 collective.
