Never heard of Bucks Fizz either, but after searching for it, it may not have anything in common
Buckshot LeFonque (band name) was an attempt by Branford Marsalis to mix jazz, soul, rock & hip-hop musics alltogether.
"Five fruits and vegetables a day? What a joke!
Personally, after the third watermelon, I'm full."
I started out coding, eventually had juniors join me, but from scratch, in VB6 (C# was not yet released), on South Africa's first online mortgage origination and real estate listing system. It became so successful that it was investigate by our Competition Commission as the was possible collusion with all the big banks to use only my system.
It was also my very first paid gig, and when I finished there, some two years later, I started work at bank, on their application that receives mortgage applications from my old system. Then I rewrote the app from VB6 into C#.
"'Do what thou wilt...' is to bid Stars to shine, Vines to bear grapes, Water to seek its level; man is the only being in Nature that has striven to set himself at odds with himself."
Even though I know I'm going to be flamed for this, one of the most memorable gigs was Nickelback, 2008 at RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin. Basically a mid-size tent on a parking lot, wonderful crowd, beer, and excellent rock.
Motorhead at the Odeon, Hammersmith, on the Bomber tour was pretty "Whoah!".
The lighting rig, shaped like a WWII bomber, looked terrific. When they played Bomber and the rig started diving, banking and turning, you just thought, "oh, yes!". Then the rig's nose landed, Lemmy climbed into it, and it started climbing and flying again while Lemmy continued paying the bass, curly cable hanging down to his amps. Health and Safety? Ha!.
I saw them a couple of times, the only full headline show i saw, had terrible sound. I still have an oversize pick signed by Phil. I am still in shock that he died.... I went to his grave in LA and saw the statue at the Rainbow.
