Silly poll part 178
 
I've always found it humorous how Caliban (which I can only find as a reference to Shakespear's The Tempest) was used in both song titles with dashes by the same band, by strikingly different eras. After recently acquiring the recently remastered Softs and giving a proper listen to Ban Ban I felt a poll was needed. So vote away!
 
I'm also curious to see if this goes along era lines (meaning people who prefer early/mid SM like Neo Grides more and vica versa).

I'm probably going to have to re-listen to give my answer. I was listening to "Neo-Caliban Grides" not too long ago from their live "Heavy Friends" album and loved the fuzz that Hopper added to it.

^ Nice review of that album btw.
 
As for me, I think I'm going to have to vote vote Ban Ban. I like Neo Grides on the Grides album, but the studio version of Ban Ban is just so majestic feeling and almost beautiful in parts. Great saxophone work as well. (If I only knew Ban Ban from the British Tour 75 album it would probably go the other way)
