Welcome to Round 2 Division 11 of Battle of the Prog Bands!  This time, our two contenders are Can and Faust.  Vote for your favorite, and the band with the most votes will move onto Round 3.  Please do not vote unless you have listened to at least one album by both bands.
 
Here is the tournament thus far:

I really love both bands, so this isn't an easy choice.  I didn't like either of them at first, but after aquiring a taste for the experimental through other bands, they both impressed more and more with each listen.  I'll go with Can, but I'll also give a very honorable mention to Faust.

I love both, but will tie it up with a vote for Faust.

I've never heard of Fuast either. Faust, on the other hand, makes pretty nifty collages of sound and noise. Alas, I prefer the hypnotic grooves of The Can.

Well, sorry.

Also, I think you'll find the correct grammar should be "Faust, on the other hand, make pretty nifty collages of sound and noise"

Yeah. Two can play at that game.

Well the Salty one likes both bands quite a lot...Faust needs some help too, but then again Can made Tago Mago.  Faust IV may very well be a strong 5-star album too, but not quite as strong as Tago Mago is, so I must vote for Can!

I'd use makes, as in the band makes.

Definitely is make, as in "the band make"

You see the word band is one unit so it's singular.

Yes, so wouldn't that be "it makes" rather than "they make"? This is terrible if I'm getting this wrong since I'm a copy-editor; however, my grammar program helps with such things when working.

I said definitely but I'm not sure now.

I'm a unit but you wouldn't say "Ian make"Confused

Think I'll bow out of this one. I know nothing.LOL

But surely, since a band is just a group of people, it would be as in "they make".

It's like, if you're talking about a company, for example Apple, they're a group of people, so it would be 'make'. But if you were talking about a machine which made moterbikes or something, it would be 'it makes'.

Also, sorry for completely derailing the thread, lol.
