May 4th, 2007 (02:30 pm)

Introducing the 25 bands battling it out in the return of the Nur Ein. 25 bands enter, 1 band survives. NUR EIN!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Merisan:
Merisan is the duo of Erin and Sam, of Loyalty Day and Tiny Robots. Their cool crisp sound earned them top honors in the Nur Ein's Round Zero and that may make them the favorites in the competition. They are coming off a streak of being a part of nine winning Songfight entries. Can they find the same type of success in the Nur Ein?
Sample: http://people.geneticmail.com/sam/merisan/merisan_letmein.mp3

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Puce:
He's got the look. He's got the talent. But does he have the formula to win the Nur Ein? He already has six solo songfight wins and has proven himself in several song skirmishes. He may be a newcomer to the Nur Ein but his second place standing in Round Zero shows that he is a definite contender.
Sample: http://www.forkbomb.ca/songs/demos/puce_lmi.mp3

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Abominominous:
Phil Redmon is another newcomer to the Nur Ein but he is a proven songfighter with 5 wins and 43 entries under his belt and that's just his solo work. He is also an accomplished webcomic artist. But will the daily grind and the Nur Ein be too much for him, or will his powerhouse rock style overwhelm the competition?
Sample: http://www.tartpop.com/tunes/abominominous-let_me_in.mp3

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Balance Lost/ Balance Regained
On their own, Furry Pedro has amassed several songfights with Those Meddling Kids and Carpetburn while Melvin has 8 solo wins. Will this international team up be the right combination for Nur Ein success? Their 4th place rank in Round Zero suggests they could be a team to be reckoned with.
Sample: http://www.lightningmp3.com/live/82024_balancelostbalanceregained_letmein.mp3

Paco del Stinko:
Paco is feuled by competition. In February, Paco completed the difficult trifecta of the FAWM, the RPM and the AAD. Will he be able to add the Nur Ein to his list of victories or will the Nur Ein be the one to stop him in his tracks?
Sample: http://www.nubsy.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/05/pacodelstinko_lmi.mp3

Jim Tyrrell:
One of the few returning Nur Ein combatants, Jim made it all the way to the 5th round in the first Nur Ein. He scored 6th place in the Round Zero pre-competition.Can he finally find his way to the top? Or will Jim continue to get close to the win and falter when its within his reach?
Sample: http://www.jimtyrrell.net/nurein2/jimtyrrell_letmein.mp3

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
The BeWells:
In the first Nur Ein, the time challenge crushed him, taking him out the competition in the 3rd round. Will he be able to turn things around this time? He had a strong showing in Round Zero. Will this be his time?
Sample: http://thebewells.com/songs/bewells_ne2r0_lmi.mp3

Frankie Big Face:
A Songfight legend with years of experience in the fights. He's done Albumfights, Coverfights but he is a newcomer to the Nur Ein. Will he be able to conquer this new endeavour?

Billy's Little Trip
A relatively new songfighter, BLT is a band that has immersed themselves in the community wholeheartedly. They already have one win under their belt but is that enough to compete in the super competitive Nur Ein? They almost didn't make it to Round Zero...
Sample: http://www.lightningmp3.com/live/97028_blt_letmein.mp3

Thank Glenny For The Frisbee:
The collaboration of Thanks for the Frisbee and Glennny (of Zipline). They been in three songfights as a duo, while seperately they have amassed 2 wins and over 20 entries. But is their untested team going to be able to withstand the test of the Nur Ein?

The Bovine Recyclery:
Plat has wowed many with his creativity, taking on such challenges as the FAWM and making an album of Yahoo Answers but this is his first Nur Ein. He may have 4 wins as the Cow Exchange. But will the BoRe be up to the task?

WreckdoM:
WreckdoM nearly ran away with the win in last year's Nur Ein. Will this be their year? As one of Songfight's most prolific contributors, Wreckdom has experience in almost 100 fights. But they have had few trips to the winner's circle. Can they pull out the big victory?

Calfborg:
Last year, this member of the prolific Pumpkin Buzzard, made it all the way to the Nur Ein finals. With Leaf 62 not competiting and last year's winner Glenn Case now one of the jury members, Calfborg can be considered a favorite to take it all.

It was a hard fought battle but in the end, the man from Spokane, Washington was the only one left standing- winner of the first ever Nur Ein, Glenn Case!!!!

The final scores: Glenn Case- 24, Leaf- 22, Calfborg- 14

Glenn came in strong coming in 6th in the Pencil Me In battle. And continued to shine taking second place in Sleeper. With some help from his wife Rachael Layne, he came in third during El Balazo. But then he found himself at the edge of elimination, narrowly surviving the Like A Villain battle. He was only able to work his way to the middle of the pack during Don't Go To. It looked like the end was near for Glenn. But he came back, winning the Condescending Prick battle. And in the final battle Sore Winner, 5 out of the 10 people who voted gave Glenn top honors.

Stage 1 was tough? Stage 2 was hellish? Want to get into Stage 4 without a fight? Then go for immunity:

IMMUNITY TRIVIA QUESTION:
Which band's album is this? Image hosting by Photobucket

From the ashes of this band came a well hyped band, which led to two more hyped up bands. But this band didn't break-up. The band ended when two of their members died. You need a hint? Think afro.


Be the first to send your answer to nurein.sidefight@gmail.com and you will be immune until stage 4.

{Update}
We finally have a winner. Deshead has earned himself immunity.

Let's work our way to the answer:

The two bands with the greek/roman reference names are The Mars Volta and Sparta. (2 much hyped bands)

They both came from the band At the Drive-In (another much hyped band).

Now in my clue, I said think Afro. And who has a better white boy 'fro than ATDI and Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala? And before ATDI, he was in a band called....The Fall on Deaf Ears. The band only recorded 6 songs before two of the members- Sarah Reiser and Laura Beard died in a car accident in 1996. Post Parlo records released the songs and that's the album in the picture.

The answer: The Fall on Deaf Ears.
The immunity winner: Deshead.

IMMUNITY TRIVIA QUESTION:
Who is this man? Image hosting by Photobucket

An interesting figure in the annals of music history, this man's face isn't well known but his story is one of rock & roll's most infamous. Here's two hints to his identity- Under My Thumb and Northern California.


Be the first to send your answer to nurein.sidefight@gmail.com and you will be immune until stage 2.

UPDATE:
Answers poured in from all-over but in the end, the winner was Jim Tyrrell, earning immunity (beating out Glenn Case by mere seconds).

The correct answer was Meredith Hunter. He was one of 4 people who died at the Rolling Stones' Altamont concert. His death being the most notable as he was stabbed to death in front of the stage by the Hells Angels while The Stones were playing "Under My Thumb".

Title: "Pencil Me In"
Due Date: March 15th at 1PM EST
Challenge: The song must include handclaps
Send a link to your completed song to nurein.sidefight@gmail.com

THE BATTLE IS ON!!! NUR EIN!!!!

Not ready for the battle? Looking for a way out? Wanna sneak into Stage 2 without making a song? Then go for immunity:

IMMUNITY TRIVIA QUESTION:
Who was the first lesbian to score a number one hit on Billboard's Top 100 in the Rock & Roll Era (1955-) and what was the song?


Be the first to send your answer to nurein.sidefight@gmail.com and you will be immune until stage 2.

[UPDATE]
KEN has earned immunity! Good work.

The correct answer was Lesley Gore. Her song "It's My Party" was a #1 hit in 1963. But she didn't reveal her sexual preference (though it wasn't exactly a secret) until late in her career.

It's Ken's party and he can sit back and wait until Stage 2. All the rest of you can cry cause you missed your chance at immunity. The battle continues. NUR EIN!!!!

Rules of the Nur Ein

March 9th, 2006 (01:29 pm)

As stated on Songfight.org:

* 25 Bands enter into the Nur Ein but in the end, there can be only one winner.

* Each fight will take eight days to complete and will be a challenge of skill, creativity and a battle against time.

* On Day 1, a song title will be named (as chosen by the jury). It will not be a songfight title as the sidefight will run on its own timeframe.

* With every title, there will be non-optional challenge attached. An example would be something like 'the lyrics must include a civil war reference' or 'the lyrics cannot make any reference to love' or 'all chords, no single notes', etc. You get the idea.

* The bands will have 5 days to complete the challenge song.

* There will also be an obscenely hard music trivia challenge. The first person to come up with the right answer wins immunity and goes onto the next round of the Nur Ein without having to make a song. This is good for those with time problems.

* Songs will be self-hosted (if you don't have space, ask me or J$).

* After the deadline, the songs will be strung into a podcast or hosted stream (a la last year's SF Radio) that can be enjoyed, while the Jury deliberates.

* Reviews and loud talking is encouraged but the jury will not be swayed (except by large bribes).

* On the 8th day, the jury will make their decision and some fighters will be eliminated. Here's the elimination breakdown:
Stage 1: 25 bands- 5 eliminations
Stage 2: 20 bands- 5 eliminations
Stage 3: 15 bands- 4 eliminations
Stage 4: 11 bands- 4 eliminations
Stage 5: 7 bands- 3 eliminations
Stage 6: 4 bands- 2 eliminations
Stage 7: 2 bands- the vote of the exiles chooses the winner.
NUR EIN!

* The band with the jury's favorite song gets an exemption.

* If the songs are of exceptional quality, we can adjust the amount of eliminations to add extra rounds.

*On that 8th day, after the eliminations are made, the new challenge title is released and the next stage begins.
