I was thinking about making a massive indie band battle here, it might bring fun and give us a chance to talk about all the bands we love.
The game will use a voting system, just the same as the Nick's Jeff Lewis world cup.
Let me know if you like the idea or not, might be less fun if only two people want to play it.
Also start dropping band names, only indie bands.
If enought people like it, i'll make a proper temporary section in the forum.

How are we defining indie? In the technical sense of music from independent record labels, or in the wider sense meaning all alternative music?
