Who's your favourite Tube busker?

If you can't have a shave in the toilet buskersI've never personally known someone who busks on the London Underground, even though I felt like I knew the much missed "if you can't have a shave in the toilet where can you have a shave" buskers. So it was with some delight last week, that a blogging friend of mine, Lloyd Davis, casually mentioned that he busked on the Tube. "What you're joking? Seriously you must tell me about it", I screamed.

Rather than grill him too much over dinner, I'm going to interview him and you can learn more about what it's like to busk from the horse's mouth very soon.

Anyway, you may have noticed some posters on the Tube launching a competition to find London's favourite busker. Lloyd explains: "The London Paper and Capital Radio who sponsor the London Licenced Buskers Scheme are having a data collection exercise Competition for your favourite Busker.....

First a warning. You’ll need to register (grrr…) here in order to enter, but you can opt out of getting too much crap from them. You’re all grown-ups and you can decide what to do with your personal data. I will understand if you feel this is too much to ask

Busk'ear Tube Map

There's a interactive map on the site and you can use a slider to remind yourself who busked when & where (or if you really want to plan a busking day out).

You have four weeks to vote for your favourites and can vote once a day. Feel free to leave a comment here about any buskers you love or particularly hate.
