So... is what your saying is... if the two of them play electronically instead of acoustically ... is it a band ? :cool:

You mean like Air, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, MGMT... ?

or how about The Dresden Dolls or Blood Red Shoes?

I guess for me a band is every musical collective that can be seen as one entity. If it's two (already otherwise active) musicians coming together to do a musical project together, then that's a duo for me :)

but again, that's just my personal view :)

3rd nominations will be accepted for the next couple of days. We're behind on the amount of nominations, not even 30 yet and voting needs to get under way. I was originally hoping to have the results by the 4th, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

You know what, it's not a huge deal, certainly not enough to generate this huge discussion. I apologize, it never occurred to me that it would become a big deal. Like Tim said the semantics of it are silly, and unnecessary. Please, nominate The White Stripes, or whichever artists that you feel fit the category. Who am I to say you can't nominate this or that. Shoot, if you know of a decent freaking one man band, go for it, it's fine. :D

The only reason I clarified it at all was to differentiate between bands & vocal groups etc. The instruments are the key point for me, so let's just say as long as somebody plays some sort of instrument it's a band & acceptable. Ok? Good. carry on please. ;)
