Secret Wars MALMÖ - Q-finals 1&2

On 3rd of October we kicked off the Secret Wars 2008 Malmö tournament at the secret sausage skin factory location...and it was a smashing success!

A good 500 people turned up to see Box Rock Man vs. Ossian and Code26 vs. Fridelic and they were treated to explicit artwork, a judging controversy, crazy beatboxing and a damn good party!

Box Rock Man vs. Ossian 0-3

B-R Man tried a very novel approach to the Secret Wars battle format, using written text (lyrics) as a major part of his piece. Ossian counterpunched with a straight up caricature. Judges (Terry Guy & Adam Blomgren) and the audience scored the contest an unanimous win for Ossian.

Code26 vs. Fridelic 0-1

Code26 used some inside info to attack the fact that Fridelic studies architecture with a massive Code26-Robot smashing buildings. Fridlic played along with the set theme and drew herself as "miss turning torso" snareing Code26 with some very surrealistic artwork.
To everyone's surprise the two judges decided that both their votes were blanks!?!?!
This left it all down to the crowd's vote and the vocal support for Fridelic was superior.
More on this very controversial battle will follow, stay tuned to this space!

Big thanks to everyone that attended! It was a very good night.
Massive shout out to the artists, beatboxer Reeps One, the host Jimi Crayon, the three DJ's (Rob Love - Romme - Simón), Filip, Sonny, the judges, Rock-a-Spot, Dick, Edding and Reebok!!

Big Love
See You All on the 24th October - Quarterfinals 3 & 4!

Hur kan ni påstå att ni arrangerar en seriös tävling när domarna inte gör det dom är där för?
En tävlande från Malmö möter en utomstående tävlande från Göteborg, domarna röstar blankt så att publikens röst avgör vilket omformar tävlingen till en popularitetstävling där den som har mest vänner i publiken vinner.
Ni kunde lika gärna ha singlat slant om vem som gick vidare. Pinsamt...
