I'm guessing this is the return of AtomicBono.

Returning from where? A far off moon, perhaps?

LM, just to make sure: are collaborations counted as having a different artist? In other words, can one use, for example, a Wilco track and a Billy Bragg + Wilco track?

Remember when Zoots resurfaced under an alter for DI IX and then flamed out again shortly thereafter?


That was fun.

Yep, they're counted as separate artists. I remember one year when Irishteen had Morrissey on his list 3-4 times because of that rule.

Wait until you see Wilco, Billy Bragg + Wilco, Jeff Tweedy solo, Golden Smog, Loose Fur and Uncle Tupelo show up in my list.

And you could even add the father/son outfit Tweedy to that, too!

It's Desert Island X, not Desert Island VW.

Honestly we could probably even remove the rule entirely. Is there really a big deal if somebody wants to use a great quality soundboard recording of their favourite live performance (or shoot themselves in the foot by using shit audience audio)? I think the main reasons for that rule were 1. in the first DI to avoid people just using shit-tonnes of U2 bootlegs, 2. because bootlegs may not have official runtimes, and 3. to add a bit of a challenge. The first reason is irrelevant now, do we really care about the second, and now I feel that allowing people to use what they like to create the best list trumps the third.

I mean, I'd love to use One Tree Hill, 26 December 1989. It's not officially released, not even in the sense of some previous tenuous inclusions (unreleased mixes of songs a band uploaded to an official social media account), but it would probably fit more seamlessly in a list than many official live releases because it's such a pristine soundboard recording.
