NAO Project Time.

88% | 3

Righto my dear NAO, it's that time again. time for another frustrating, yet oh-so-addictive project for MelMel ala the ultimate book quiz. Ok the deal with this is, there's supposed to be 72 band names concealed within this picture. Now i've managed to find about 50 of them, but am stuck on the other 22. So, get to work NAO! I promise you, it's more addictive than you think.

So that I son't spoil the fun for you all, i'll post the bands i've found in small dribs and drabs.

Get cracking y'all!

Bands-small.jpg

you'll find that null has nicely provided you with a larger image here

So to get you started we have...

Queen shooting The Sex Pistols at Prince with Matchbox 20 just infront of The Scissor Sisters. also you'll find a Crowded House in the top right corner.

Good luck!

null throws in his two cents...

Hmmm...

That girl on the right next to the Blurry man is Alice in Chains.

The guy next to the Matchbox 20 is Smashing Pumpkins.

There's a Whitesnake crawling up the traffic lights just below the Le(a)d Zeppelin.

In the centre of the picture The Cars are about to be smashed by Rolling Stones. In front of the left stone an Iron Maiden is crossing the street.

Heyy, this is kinda fun :-) I'll stop here so everybody gets their turn. I wonder if the bands you recognise first tell you something about your musical preferences/upbringing?

Re: NAO Project Time.

Guns'n'Roses is pretty obvious
Beach Boys (the two boys with surf boards)
Deep Purple (the purple house)
Seal? (the poster on the wall on the left side)
Hole (null guessed that)

I'll let it by this, so that the others can guess, too ;)

Re: NAO Project Time.

I see The Pixies on the left side, floating above a White Zombie near the posters of two Dead Kennedies overlooking an employee of The Postal Service. There are Men At Work on top of the building on the right (the one with the Black Flag). Down the road, near the Rolling Stones, you can see The Police. I'm not positive, but is the woman with the Sex Pistols threatening King Crimson? If so, does that make the woman threatening him Queen?

I think that would be the Queen shooting Prince using Sex Pistols :P But then I think that everybody is entitled to his own interpretation :P In fact, that Black Flag to me looks like a flag with two White Stripes, so who knows :P

null has all the information you need...

Re: NAO Project Time.

Sorry, I'm gonna have to go to work again, it's just too much fun. :-)

Right under the white snake there's a Kissing couple. There are Cowboy Junkies next to the fruit/veggies stand with a Blind Melon and some Lemonheads on it. Also, there's a 50 Cent coin behind the Queen and what looks like a Cypress Hill in the background.

I'm not sure if that's a Phish in that bowl, and a Dinosaur Jr. behind the Queen?
The Yellowman at the corner shop is pretty obvious. The Nails behind the Prince might be Nine Inches long, and...

Re: NAO Project Time.

Could this be a Feargal Sharkie poster on the left side?

Also there is Madonna to the left in the shop window. (She's represented by the Virgin Mary in the painting).

Re: NAO Project Time.

Andromacha has been a little quicker today, what a pity. So, Madonna isn't new stuff. On the Main Street sign I saw something different, namely The Black Crowes, but I could be wrong then. Also we saw The White Stripes elsewhere, namely in the pedestrian crossings. I'm not sure if the white men on the left side could be The Manic Street Preachers. Yesterday we discussed about seeing Pavement everywhere on the ground.

null announces...

My last post here. :-)

According to Google, it appears that we're not the only ones brooding over this picture (surprise surprise!). Among other band lists I've found a cool server that appears to tell you whether a particular band is on that picture or not. Unfortunately you have to copy the (url-encoded) band name encoded into the URL and get an ugly machine-readable response. That's why I've taken the liberty of writing a script to tap that server's infinite knowledge and wisdom.
It basically works like this - you type in a band name and hit the Check button and it replies with "Sorry" or "You be the hero". (If at first you don't succeed, try adding/removing a "the" to/from the band name. It appears to find "The Cars" but not "Cars", and "Smashing Pumpkins" but not "The Smashing Pumpkins". It's not case sensitive tho.)
Good luck!

I see a number of Talking Heads on the televisions in the building on the left. Also, walking around in the street behind the Scissor Sisters is a Rat(t).
