    Your turn bud.
    Not to nitpick, but isn't there a little acoustic guitar in The Flow? (during the 4-beat drum part before Cy's falsetto vocals.)

    OK, under the assumption that I answered correctly, here is a new question:

    What are the full names of each member of The Fixx (at least the four main members.) Extra credit for full names of any bass player.

    Space around me"

    okay here's my attempts:

    Cyril John Curnin {know that one is right}
    Jamie West Oram {don't think there's an extra}
    Rupert Peter James Greenall {mmmmm possibly}
    Adam Thomas Woods {that's a guess}
    Gary Brian Tibbs {know that one is right}

    Very close! Just about all of them are right! Here's what I have:

    Cyril John Curnin
    Peter John Greenall
    James Fletcher West-Oram
    Adam Terence Woods

    And for the bass men:
    Daniel Kingsmill Brown
    Alfred John Agius
    Gary Brian Tibbs

    I don't have a middle name for Charley Barrett or Chris Tait. But it is at least "Charles Barrett."

    Probable not.

    The electric guitar was dubbed and also chorused (these techniques are often used for acoustic guitars as well). Kinda tricky if you're not an experienced analytical listener. The 'attack' of the strums is characteristic for an electric guitar.

    Lotsa ppl can't tell the difference.

    Well, I know we saw it in the "Are We Ourselves" video, but I have no idea of its name or location.

    Always imagined it to be Jodrell Bank in the UK that was in the Are We Ourselves video, but the pics of the dish at JD don't match the photo above, so ..........PASS.

    No need to pass Stu, you are correct, that pic above is from the Jodrell Bank observatory, but, the observatory has more than one dish, that shot is of the Mark II Dish, sorry if I was throwing a slight curve there but I thought the concept of a dish alone would be enough for someone to answer correctly, so yes the video was shot at Jordell Bank, located in Macclesfield, Cheshire, about 20 miles south of Manchester.

    Unfortunately I dont have the AWO video anymore so I cant even try to narrow down exactly which dish at Jodrell is in the shot where the boys run across that field, maybe this shot of the Lovell dish, which I believe may be the larger dish in the array, is the one, maybe someone who has the video can confirm or unconfirm that for us?



    good going Stu, pass or not i think its your turn again..................................

    Ha, right then, not your usual kind of question, this is something to make you think and puzzle a while, in the anagram below, are the titles of 3 Fixx songs, not albums, songs, every letter is used.

    A THREADBARE VERSE OF SILKS

    1. ??
    2. ??
    3. ??

    sorry folks, just felt devious, but will give a small hint to get you started, one of the tracks is on Want That Life, one on Elemental and the other ......well....you'll have to figure that one out.
