Unfortunately, it isn't actually that hard to predict. Crs members are like sheep.

Any species is close to extinction if it doesn't breed.

I think that's a being a bit hard on the CRS members mate. I know there is a lot of conservative attitudes going about but in much of prog (and indeed all music), tenure is nine tenths of the law. People know the established bands like IQ, Pendragon, etc and they believe that supporting them in any way possible is what a fan does.

The newer bands are always going to struggle against that tide and bands like us wankers can be seen as young upstarts when you compare how long we've been around compared to other outfits.

Of course I am being harse.  I am actually a shareholder in the organisation and I believe that it is far important that the awards exist than who actually wins them. 

Obviously Pendie and IQ have more chance to do well as more people will have heard their album because they have earned their following.

Andy Faulkener and I were discussing some of the voting patterns a few weeks back.  One of his suggestions was that after someone wins an award 5 times (well pick a number) they are enshrined in a hall of fame and become ineligible for any more wins.

I hope that for the "unsung hero" award that any previous winner is automatically ineligible.  This is one award that should be spread around.

Now that's a good idea.

We don't want any harseness around these parts.

Especially as I've never heard of any of them.

I had a similar thought the other day. I think it would open the awards up a bit.

If there were ever a CRS AGM, I suppose I would be able to propose this.
