M+N Readers Poll 2012 Open For Voting

News posted Wednesday, December 12 2012 at 04:00 PM.
Related: Readers Poll.

You’ve had our opinions hurled at you all year, now’s your turn to answer back. The seventh annual M+N Readers Poll is officially open for 2012.

You can now cast your vote in the usual categories – Best Album, Best New-ish Act, Best Comeback and Best Live Band – but for the first time readers will also be able to weigh in on the worst break-up of the year. As always, there’s an “other” box if you feel a band that recorded a limited-run cassette-only masterpiece is grossly unrepresented. And for the first time ever we’ve opened up the albums poll to New Zealand acts we’ve championed throughout the year.

To vote, simply click here and follow the prompts. Voting closes next Tuesday, December 18, with the results announced on M+N that same week. VOTING IS NOW CLOSED

Happy voting, The team at M+N

  1. Thanks for voting in the Mess+Noise 2011 Readers Poll

LOL

LIARS? really?

i was wondering what the first whinge was going to be


seahunt  said about 2 years ago:

Get in there Short Stack


SnoopDoug  said about 2 years ago:

Is there a category for ''best whinge in a festival review thread''?

That'd be a tough fought battle.


ImBored  said about 2 years ago:

Just voted and then realised that Drowning Horse were not included anywhere.

Youse cunts can fuck yourselves.


Bowie  said about 2 years ago:

Didn't vote. Hurtful. Dead.


monkeyman  said about 2 years ago:

What? No best controversy? Categories seem a bit light on this year...

Anyway had to add in YIS as biggest loss, Saint Jude as best newish band and the mighty Midnight Woolf as best live act- it's great to have the option to choose your own, too many good bands to list I guess (although the best albums category was quite comprehensive).


redeyerobbie  said about 2 years ago:

What? No best controversy?

Gave it straight to teenage Mothers


mswahili  said about 2 years ago:

Couple of fairly obvious omissions:

Spinning Rooms and DEAD in best album

The Aesthetics, DEAD, Deaf Wish, Bits of Shit, ZOND in best live acts

Yes I know you can add your own made-up bands in the box at the bottom, but some of these have been covered in M+N articles. And the others should've been.


Pibulus  said about 2 years ago:

MESA COSA


flukazoid  said about 2 years ago:

Wish Snakeface was in the albums list. I know it wasn't submitted, and therefore not reviewed, but just... yeah... anyway, I'll include it when I vote.


unvisible  said about 2 years ago:

It's OK guys, you can just vote for Grinspoon instead of your overlooked favourite band.


josejones  said about 2 years ago:

If there's enough consensus in the ''other'' boxes we'll add to the main list.

These things are a bitch to put together and of course there are going to be omissions.

And have YIS really broken up? I didn't get the press release...


FrankieTeardrop  said about 2 years ago:

The Spinning Rooms album is a very obvious omission, especially considering that it is probably one of the most original, fully formed and mindblowing rock albums released anywhere in the world this year. Sure, that's just my opinion, but I'm putting it out there.


FrankieTeardrop  said about 2 years ago:

ZOND and Deaf Wish for best live acts, fo' shure.


NotMorrissey  said about 2 years ago:

Thanks for the tip on The Spinning Rooms, good shit. I really should actually listen to more local music... Tell me all the bands I should be seeing!


FrankieTeardrop  said about 2 years ago:

Another overlooked album is 'Dancing On Sinking Sands' by The Bulls (Linda and Bean from The Dacios). And The Dacios are an obvious 'best live band' contender, as is Kim Salmon (in any of his many guises).


Gorn  said about 2 years ago:

DEAF WISH best live band.

Would probably put Liars in my top 5 albums of the year, but didn't vote for them here. Definitely shouldn't be considered an Australian band.

Seconded. They were ace at Harvest, but too much of an aberration seeing their name here.


unvisible  said about 2 years ago:

nothing on that list diserve anything at all.


josejones  said about 2 years ago:

ok, so by extension you won't read another word about Nick Cave, The Dirty Three, AC/DC, Dead Can Dance and The Death Set here.

I have no problems with that at all.


josejones  said about 2 years ago:

knew someone would post that!


Adrian-Ronalds  said about 2 years ago:

I want an article on that chick who plays with the Michael Jackson.


GOD  said about 2 years ago:

jennifer batten is australian?


Adrian-Ronalds  said about 2 years ago:

Nick Cave, The Dirty Three, AC/DC, Dead Can Dance and The Death Set all formed in Australia.

Liars have an Australian member and were formed in NY and have sucked for a long time.

Michael Jackson is from Adelaide but made moved at a very early age to Los Angles to peruse their menu.


astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

I think 'played' is what you meant. Actually, 'played guitar with' might be less leading. Anyway, she's ace.


Bowie  said about 2 years ago:

Red hot chilli peppers! Flea!


anonymous  said about 2 years ago:

voted, can't wait for the wiggles to win em all.


GOD  said about 2 years ago:

Chicks on Speed?


Adrian-Ronalds  said about 2 years ago:

Fieldy from KORN has had sex with Australians.


Bowie  said about 2 years ago:

We are a part of the British empire. So I vote for Coldplay.


Adrian-Ronalds  said about 2 years ago:

Can we vote for films?

Mad Max was filmed in Australia


Bowie  said about 2 years ago:

Evan dandified stones at rrr I vote for the lemonheads


seahunt  said about 2 years ago:

Can I submit ten votes for the one album? I want to vote for LIARS.


MalikVerlag  said about 2 years ago:

re liars, i support the idea expats aren't excommunicated, but it does seem a bit late attempt to grab at thin air.

out of interest, does angus have any local musical history we should check out?


oort  said about 2 years ago:

+1 for Spinning Rooms FrankieTeardrop, just heard this recently and it brings the sausage rolls.


King_Rat  said about 2 years ago:
