    The Ashes A-Z of Bands

    With the Ashes coming up I thought it might be a good idea to put together an A-Z of Aussie & English bands, with only one in each letter category. Some will speak for themselves others will require explanation...

    A. AC/DC
    B. The Beatles (The easiest two are the first two!)
    C. Cream
    D. Deep Purple
    E. The Easybeats
    F. Farnham, John
    G. Genesis
    H. Hoodoo Gurus
    I. INXS
    J. Jam, The
    K. Kinks, The
    L. Led Zepplin
    M. Minouge, Kylie
    N. New Order
    O. Oasis
    P. The Police
    Q. Queen
    R. Rolling Stones, The
    S. Skyhooks
    T. 10CC
    U. UB40
    V. Verve, The
    W. Who, The
    X. XTC
    Y. Yothu Yindi
    Z. Zoot, The (Couldn't think of many Zs, but The Zoot did a great cover of Elenor Rigby)

    Had some trouble with U, V & X so some help is required. Now open to discussion and debate...

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    The Verve have been added. Can't believe I forgot them. I loved their debut album when it came out!

    That all depends, I'm not too sure on whether Kylie writes here own songs or not, but she is probably more well known than the Oils.
