    Plus adding a guess or two.
    Toilet Lecrure = Loo Read = Lou Reed

    I'm pretty sure that Steal a bear's lair has something to do with ROB and DEN. But I don't know any bands called ROBDEN or any artist called ROB DEN. Maybe someone else knows.

    On UFO's I was thinking Flying Saucers. I looked it up and it seems there is a band from Bristol named that.
  • 7 is the 3 degrees

    4 is Bucks Fizz

    and guessing that 10 is Cher

    and 25 is Roxy Music

    but I have to say that my absolute favourite is Nuclear Pussy - but i wonder will it last for ever? ;)
  • I was gonna post originally when Jane first posted these up, but wasn't sure whether to or nto as I'm no good at these. The only one I thought of was 25. UFO. I can't actually think of the groups name, but they release that Michael Jackson song. It's something like Alien something or other. I forget exactly. Anyone know who I mean. They did the music video where the group members all dance along the path (sidewalk) and the paving slabs all light up when they're stepped on them. If I remember correctly, there is also a monkey in the video possibly with a nappie (Diper) on :confused:

    Come on people, help me out with this groups name will ya :(
  • The band your thinking of jason is Alien ant farm. And thats not the right answer
  • Really? Well I think that's just plain evil then. Well that's my participation on this thread well and truly stuffed :frown:
  • 21. Foo Fighters (UFO term from WWII)
  • i thought that the ufo one was jefferson starship... or just starship.
    toilet lecture must be talking heads
    distrubute evenly......cher?
  • I had forgot about this one, but I think I've figure the bear-house stealer out:

    Nick Cave: :w00t2:


    I've been looking all over for a band that fit no. 2. In my mind "Clam Jam" sounded spot on, but alas, nothing. (Unless you're looking for the slighly far fetched "PEARL JAM")
