This game calls for perfect HONESTY


Alphabetically , first band name that comes to your mind.

(Obviously this will not be your favorite band - just first that mysteriously somehow
came to your mind.)

Here's mine:

Arzachel
Bull Angus
Cain
Dayde
Enid
Fruupp
Grobschnitt
Hawkwind
The Illusion
Jamme
Karthago
Lethe
Manfred Mann
Nektar
Open Mind
Polyfeen
Quintessence
Renaissance
Strawbs
Think
Uriah Heep
Van Halen (yikes. where this come from. I hate Halen)
Wally
Xaal
Yavanna
Zzebra



And then RATE YOURSELF: are you happy with the result?

With the exception of Van Halen, I'm sitting pretty comfortable with that list. 8/10.
(At least there were no total embarassments, for instance like saying "Bay City Rollers" for the letter "B".)

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

Rockin’ Berries popped into mind before the Rolling Stones? Ha! Mick’n’Keef would be dismayed....

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

Oh. the rating. I like most of the bands I listed so I’m good with an 8/10 as well. It definitely reflects that my formative years were the 1980’s. I remember Ram Jam from Don Kirshner’s “Rock Concert” which was the height of 70’s cheese, but I was recently reminded of them when I picked up Manfred Mann’s “Mighty Garvey” which has their take of “Black Betty.” So that explains Ram Jam on the list. And as silly as Abba are, I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit I watched an entire 70’s special with Abba, Andy Gibb and Olivia Newton John on Youtube the other day. Abba did pretty well live actually. They took their pop seriously. Gentle Giant also were great live, if the DVDs I have are representative. They could reproduce their sound on stage quite well. I don’t listen to all the bands on my list, but there are none that fill me with real revulsion. Some I just don’t have much interest in. I admire and respect the Fall more than I listen to them. They never really won me over, because they always seemed like a band you had to see live and live with (maybe in Manchester in the late 70’s) to really feel attached to. Although I know plenty of people who loved the Fall...

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

Interesting list Joe and I must admit I started thing 'why didnt I think of that band'

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

I remember doing this in my mind many years ago. I find if I do it now which I just did, most of the band seem to be the same. None later than about 1974.

Okay, that's without looking at any other replies... now I'm going to go back and read what you all came up with.

Re: This game calls for perfect HONESTY

Oh yeah... a rating...
I'm pretty okay with it - although I do prefer The Small Faces over Rod the Mod's version, but that is what popped up first (playing by the rules and all)

I too, give myself an eight out of ten (yay me!)
