If this isn't variety - you're definitely the greatest denier! Part 5 Ud 03/11/13

“I don’t know about you Fred, but I’m glad I’ve got my rain mac as it’s no longer just a harmless drizzle, it’s now a torrential downpour.”

“Bob, this is truly peculiar.  With everybody shaking like a leaf and dripping like a damaged drainpipe, let battle, err penalties commence.”

The drama unfolds…

I know this may come as a bit of a Shock to you, but Fear Factory have become Obsolete.

The Man Who Loved Beer is a song by Lambchop.  I believe there may be millions of males who are guilty of this…

Therapy? are 30 Seconds away and 30 Seconds to Mars is a band.

I visited Metropolis and bought an edition of The Daily Planet because you got a free Forever Changes album by Love free inside.

All the kings horses and All the King’s Men couldn't put Wild Beasts back together again.

The Calling will change Our Lives.

Thinking Fellers Local Union 282 gave me excruciating Indigestion.

We Are Scientists display acts of Impatience.

The National make me Thirsty for more.

The Raveonettes are easy to Remember and We Were Promised Jetpacks are Hard to Remember.

Some people seem to like arguing, so much so they are said to be able to start an argument in an Empty Room.  Just don’t pick the wrong conversation with Arcade Fire.

Further to this, you can have more fun if you do this in an Empty House with Air.

Vida (I Want You) and Vida la Vida are songs by The Answer and Coldplay.

Low are just Pissing me off and Badly Drawn Boy is Pissing in the Wind.

The Beatles and Space owned a farm with Piggies and Sparklehorse kept a solitary Pig.

Neutral Milk Hotel kept a Two-Headed Boy and Weird Owl is related to a Two-Headed Brother.

You should listen to Two-Headed Boy, it’s a masterpiece.

Miserable weather can include hail, rain, snow or Sleet.  Guess what weather condition The Futureheads prefer.

The Kills added the final Nail in my Coffin.

The Pigeon Detectives state Everybody Wants Me.  Well, I didn’t want to be the first to say it…

Did you know that The Stranglers are certain that there’s never a frown with Golden Brown?

I attended a wedding but the bride hesitated when wedding vows were exchanged.  Placebo and Weezer were keen for her to say I Do.

When I go to the firing range, I want to shoot real man bullets and not Pink Bullets like The Shins.  Deftones literally turned heads when they produced a Pink Cellphone and Wire wave a Pink Flag.

“Ernest Hemingway once wrote ‘The world is a fine place and Worth Fighting For’.  I agree with the second part.”

Okay that’s a quote by Somerset (Morgan Freeman) in David Fincher’s brilliant Seven, but there's also a song from Paradise Lost buried in that quote...

Saint Michael, Saint Simon, Saint Patrick and Saint Christopher etc.  Now there’s a song in there by The Shins so which Saint doesn’t look immediately familiar?

The Bees say I Really Need Love but they are also Tired of Loving.

I bet working in a Factory is far more interesting under the Band of Horses.

On the other hand, Tindersticks also own a chain which is either heaven for lesbians or pose many difficult choices to men as they only employ Factory Girls.  The Rolling Stones knew a Factory Girl.   

Depeche Mode are among the most Corrupt artists in the music industry.

Death to our Friends and Death and all His Friends are songs by Sonic Youth and Coldplay respectively.

My Descent into Madness is playing a text adventure on an 8-bit retro relic or a general mind-numbing and spirit constricting experience.  I am not one to speculate but I hear that Eels have their own vision.

Car Fiction is a song by Echobelly and Pulp Fiction is a cult classic Tarantino film.  The Xx are a work of Fiction.

This is a Reminder, Mumford & Sons have a new album out soon.

Help I’m Alive.  Well Metric, I’m really ‘confused’ for you...

You can visit Jupiter if you’re in with The Futureheads.

I'm in no Mood for The Fiery Furnaces.  Tomorrow yes, but today, no.

You’ve heard of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and many other types of Day but have you heard of Lover’s Day?  I wanna be part of it but not before TV on the Radio.

Friends and loved ones keep telling me that if I keep listening to The Big Pink, you’re going to Lose Your Mind.  Wait a mo, hasn’t that already happened?

Hot Chip bought a lottery ticket and because their numbers were so close to be important, they asked somebody to check them Over and Over.  It didn’t change the result...

Chapel Club and Hot Water Music should keep the language down as these walls are Paper Thin.

As a massive video game fan, the following is deliciously bizarre.

SNK used the tagline, The Future Is Now for the truly seminal Neo Geo.  That’s great, but wait a minute, there’s something even more brilliant and has to be among the two most amazing coincidences ever…..

Yes I did say two.

This tagline is a song by The Offspring and the title of debut album from Non Phixion.

I’d like to think that they are both used in homage to SNK but it’s surely just a delightful mouth drop.

Is there another amazing reference out there that you could associate with a video game company? 

Possibly, but because it’s SNK and not Sony, Nintendo, etc - that’s what really makes it crazy.

No matter what Dry the River do, they will never leave their Family.

After talking to School of Seven Bells about a topic they share a great interest in, their answers didn’t make a great deal of sense.  It soon became obvious that they were still Half Asleep.

Instead of a barrel of laughs, We are Augustines are a Barrel of Leaves and The War on Drugs are a Barrel of Batteries.

What a Shiny band The Decemberists are.

Most people have used a Dyson Airblade as it's standard in most toilets.  Change Air Blade is 1999 Sammy arcade game.

Braindead and Brain Dead are two totally different films.

Dead Man’s Curve, Dead Man’s Cards and Dead Man’s Shoes are all films.

Apples and pairs is cockney rhyming slang for stairs.  Apples and Pairs is a song by Slow Club and unless you saw it written down, it'd be a total guess if it was this expression or a pair of fruits.

If something cannot be blamed on a machine, we say it’s Human Error.  We Were Promised Jetpacks are guilty of such mistakes.

With nobody being able to beat the opposing keeper, we have a rather dramatic turn of events.

Both sets of players are practically taking penalties in a swimming pool and the referee orders a pitch inspection.

After declaring that it would be more plausible to play water polo instead of football, the game is abandoned.

The crowd let out a raucous and celebratory cheer.

This game will be rearranged (undisclosed).

They think it’s all over, it isn't yet.
