Channel Islands live music poll for Asylum

In all ages, asylum, guernsey, jersey, music on April 5, 2012 at 20:11

We recently carried out an unscientific private poll to find which live music acts a few friends would like to see chosen from the set of musicians and bands either connected with or situated on a Channel Island. Here we’re asking anyone who wants to offer recommendations or opinions.

Acts can be groups or solo performers. Artists needn’t be based in C.I. but should be currently or at least theoretically contactable, able and willing to play gigs in Jersey at reasonably short notice – think about a month.

The Gaa Gaas (44)
Parker and The Flowing Wow (42)

The numbers above represent popularity of bands in mentions or votes. Asylum is inviting bands that top the poll to work with us on a show in Jersey.

UPDATE 16:29 30/04/2012: On Saturday 5 May 2012 the poll will be closed and the top five bands in our chart that are available will be invited to perform at the show. We hope to announce the final line-up for the show on Ryan Morrison’s BBC Introducing in Jersey radio show on Saturday 5 May 2012.

Some commenters have said they are concerned about a few people’s multiple votes for the same band. To tackle this problem, we will be removing any votes of this kind that come from the same IP address. See reply by likeallstars, 30 April 2012 3pm, in the comments thread below for a more detailed response to this issue.

We are counting mentions in comments on this blog post, also on the Asylum Live Facebook page and suggestions that we receive in tweets to @asylumlive

UPDATE 21:18 30/04/2012: We have recounted the votes, removing 57 duplicate votes for bands sent from the same IP addresses. A database of all IPs is maintained for this poll, and any similar ‘spam’ votes will not be counted from now on. We keep available the option to post here anonymously, because we believe it is the right of every web user to be anonymous if they want to be.
