No selecta 
Full details of the selections of Peter Hook and Bez in the Observer Music Monthly poll of '100 critics, industry figures and pop stars' are unavailable. However, some light is shed on the latter's choices on the OMM website. Each pollster was asked for "a list of the 10 records they consider the best of British, excluding compilations".

It continues: "Not every pop star heeded this last rule and Bez from the Happy Mondays gave us a list in which 6 of the 10 acts involved are not British. For reasons that remain obscure, he felt unable to revise his selection, but in this instance and elsewhere, invalid choices have been excluded from our calculations".
