(Having flicked very quickly past Trev's answers to not spoil it for myself. I think there's a design fault here)
I don't know half of these, but I'm going to have a go at the few I think I ought to get.
SpoilerShow
2. Electric Honey
6. The Flying Pickets - 'Only You'
12. Betty and the Werewolves
14. I've got a feeling it's The Rubinoos (I know someone who was vastly into this record)
15. Something by The Orchids, but I can't remember what
Well, with a possible high score of 4 1/2 out of 15, I'm probably not the man to beat. Ah well, it kept me occupied for 5 minutes
Edit - If Trev's going to guess the Felt one, I might as well have a go as well
SpoilerShow
- 5? (10 seems a bit much, he was in Denim by the mid-nineties)
Edit again - Ahhhh (Spoiler time)

Too difficult maybe? Ah well, it's just to keep you from your work for a few minutes and do something more important.

Nah, I should've known a couple more. Think I got 5 or 6 right answers, though.

I'm pretty crap at quizzing, it seems.

I can't believe my answer to 14 was wrong. That was supposed to be my trump card.

Edit - looking at the Tigercats question, I ought to have got that anyway, it's bloody obvious. Arse.

I'm intrigued to know if your answer to question 11 is correct as, cryptically enough, the band you cite did not include their photograph on any of their original releases. (I've not seen the CD reissue).
*EDIT* Reading that back, I sound like Mr. Logic from Viz. Oops!

If I'd have been confident of more than two answers I might have had a go and would have correctly guessed No 1, but three is pretty crap isn't it.
