It's nice being at home again.

The rules:
1. Open a music player.
2. Go to 'all music'/'library'.
3. Hit shuffle/repeat/randomise.
4. Find photos of the first 10 artists/bands that come up [no repeats and no cheating].
5. Have people guess who the artists/bands are.

I broke some of these rules; there are 12 not 10 cos it looks nicer, and I ignored the Avalanches cos, well, who the fuck are they? How did they get into my record collection? Not mine, anyway.

I think I would have scored 4 of these. I think 9 of them are pretty achievable, and the other three are 'quite hard', especially the one who seems to have totally changed appearance.

Alanis Morissette, Chumbawamba, Belle & Sebastian
Afrocelts, The Magnetic Fields, Richard Thompson
James Keelaghan, Nick Cave, Eliza Carthy (+ Ratcatchers)
Andreas Vollenweider, Steve Earle, Christine Collister

I haven't the faintest. Most of the music I listen to today (ie:past 20 yrs) is ambient, 'tronica, jazz and classical and the albums for the most part don't have artist pics. I'm really out of touch with most music.

Number six is Richard Thompson, and I want to say that ten is Vollenweider, or something along those lines, but am not sure.

Allanis Morisette. Okay, there's Nick Cave and Richard Thompson (yeah, like you NEVER listen to him), is that Neil Young at bottom center? If it's not, I'll kick myself when you say who it is. Sorry, that's it without major research. I'm not as folkie oriented as you are, I think, so I'm not bothered by missing the harp guy (who does look familiar, though).

Harp guy isn't a folkie and that's not Neil Young. Others are right.

Aha! Steve Earle, no wonder he looked familiar (thank you, Tony). #2 looks familiar, but I didn't find them where I thought I would, so never mind.

8 might be Nick Cave (I'm not a fan but I know a woman who is). 7 I recognise but I have no idea why.

Nick Cave is right. 7 and 12 are the least well-known of this batch.

6 is Richard Thompson, 8 is Nick Cave and 11 is Steve Earle. The rest defet me for now.

2)Chumbawumba (I think)
6)Richard Thompson (*le sigh*)
8) Nick Cave
and when did Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (sp?) take up the harp??

The spelling's right (and that was my question, too).

Otherwise, nul points here - no surprise.

No, it's not, it's Chumbawamba.

yes, yes, yes, and he didn't as far as I know.

He's wearing a bloody beret again!


Nick cave and the bad seeds? Surely its "Adam Cave and the Pumpkin Seeds" as I heard an impatient woman complaining (about his lack of on-stagedness) on her mobile next to me _at his concert_. And no, she wasn't taking the piss - she was just clueless. Guess her boyfriend took her.

Number 7 is the only one I found dead easy
