|One who I was glad to see support for this year, but feel was mis-categorized is Serge Gainsbourg. As far as style and career timeline, I always thought of him more as a Performer canditade, and a damn strong one, too. I'd get behind him right away in that category.|

|Popol Huh would fit in performers perfectly since we have Can and Silver Apples in that category and they are both bands contemporaries.|

|I'm in agreement with all of the electronic acts being mentioned and I'm pretty open minded on the order that we tackle them. Probably best to come up with a consensus each round, which we seem to have with the Chems for next yeat.|

|Also, while reading moreso about the Belleville Three, I came across DJ Charles "The Electrifying Mojo" Johnson. In addition to helping "break" several artists into the Detroit radio market (i.e. Prince, Kraftwerk, the B-52's), he's been cited as an influence for the Belleville Three among other techno artists and disc jockeys. |
This guy may be another one to keep on the radar when thinking of non-performers.
Also, as a sidenote, I think Popol Vuh, whom we've discussed before, may fit best into the influences category and should also be a consideration.
