The picture below contains images representing 72 bands.

We've recognised about 45 in the office.

If anybody wants to do this alone,
do not read on, as the next post
contains the answers we have so far.
I just want to avoid somebody saying
"Scissor Sisters." Again!!

If you spot any, give a quick location description in brackets. Like Nils will when he edits his post. Hopefully. Where's Green Day?

I'm particularly perplexed by the big spoon, the 2 cowboys with girl and the coloured boards on the left. And also the significance of the calendar. Any ideas?

The calendar has one day marked in green - draw your own conclusions.

I'm wondering whether the two cowboys and the girl could be the Alabama 3, but I'm not too sure.

I have a vague feeling the inflatable sex doll and the vague bleeding thing is somehow supposed to be Bikini Kill, but I'm not sure.

Good work. Takes the total to 63.

Still no answer for the big spoon, the necklace thing (next to Reel Big Fish) and the Jaws(?) advert.

Why so big though? And they are a little obscure. I'msure you'll find a band called silver spoon.

I prefer my idea.

That'll do.

See. Cheating does pay.

edit: I had the Silver Spoon idea too. There must be a band called that. My google search just returned loads of stuff about sugar.

I'd love it to be right Nills, but I think that might be a little tenuous.

King Diamond? Tenuous again.

Could the Plastic Gorilla be A (as in A vs Monkey Kong?) Tenuous as well...

I'd say it was Streets because of the "Main" sign, rather than the fact that there are streets everywhere!

Thought it might be the Blues Brothers or something, but wasn't convinced they should be in it. Other ideas?

Is the bluish-indigo house in the background significant? It's an unusual colour. As is the pink sky, but I guess that's Pink... Is the window behind the bubblegum girl (what's she representing?) Deep Purple?
