message 1: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1402 comments A wee bit late getting started but we should be fine. Let's meet theDuke's latest nom, US new wave(?) band, the B-52's

I can't say that I know that much about them apart from one or two major hits but I am sure you all know them well enough.

Wiki lists 7 albums to choose from, no doubt there are others lurking around somewhere.

Noms as ever close at 10pm on Sunday. Sunday? Hmmmm. I am scheduled to be working till 8pm, but local youngsters creating a huge sensation in the metal world at the moment, God Alone have an album release gig that night. I feel a bout of flu coming on :-)

Spacepig Pig | 1402 comments All over then, and out of the fracas, a winner emerges, step forward - Tim, as Planet Claire holds off the opposition. Second place is shared between Brass neck and Gordon with their noms of Rock Lobster and Give Me Back My Man. And squeezing on to the bottom step of the podium, Collette with Love Shack.

Good to see Derek pop in for a visit, welcome back any time with a nom of your own.

theDuke | 5605 comments A predictable result, but a good one..Planet Claire is the best song they ever did me thinks.
