Hello Jason...excellent stuff as ever...

#6. 'Duel' - Propaganda

#10. 'Listen To Your Father'
Feargal was born in the province (Northern Ireland) which, depending on your viewpoint, doesn't actually make him 'Irish'...but that's just a pedantic point...

#11. 'Another Lover' - Giant Steps
I would tell you who they were originally known as, but that's my limit!

I actually didn't know there was a difference.  I always heard Feargal was Irish.  Guess not

You got 2.5 correct answers, which means you still have .5 of a guess left :)

Hi again...

#33. 'Cry' - Waterfront

...and at long last...

#41. used to be known (in some shape or form) as The Quick
They only had one minor-ish it ('Rhythm Of The Jungle') over here, but they apparently provided the 'inspiration' for Go West (if the sleeve notes of one of their records is to be believed...)
