Link (a BCB game!)

Postby The Modernist » 06 Dec 2017, 09:32

Link the following in as fewer moves as possible. Kind of like the Kevin Bacon game.
I don't have answers for these btw, it's just a bit of fun to see how we can do..
Choose as many or as few as you want.

Mike Nesmith - Martin Fry
Linda Ronstadt - Captain Sensible
Abba - Elliot Smith
Neneh Cherry - Neil Young
The Prodigy - The Kinks
Terry Callier- Bon Jovi

Some of these are pretty tough, but have a go!

Ooh, I was thinking about doing this. How close does the link have to be, I mean, is Sheffield a good enough link for Martin Fry to Jarvis Cocker (for example) or do they have to have worked/recorded together?

Just wait till I'm familiar enough to give you a cyber clip around the year, that man.

(Actually a Tricky/Ronstadt collaboration is one I'd want to listen to.)

Linda Ronstadt recorded Elvis Costello’s song, Alison. Costello included The Dammed’s Neat, Neat, Neat in early live shows with The Attractions. Captain Sensible played bass on the Damned’s recording of Neat, Neat, Neat.

The Prodigy’s song ’Diesel Power’ featured Kool Keith, who has often worked under his various names with producer Dan the Automator. Dan the A is part of Gorillaz with Damon Albarn, who performed a version of ’Waterloo Sunset’ together with Ray Davies live on Channel 4’s The White Room.

Nenah Cherry’s stepdad, Don Cherry, played on Carla Bley’s Escalator Over The Hill album, which also featured Linda Ronstadt. Linda sang back up on Neil Young’s Heatr Of Gold.

The musical Mamma Mia is based around the songs of Abba. The film version starred Stellan Skarsgård, who was also in Good Will Hunting. The soundtrack of that film featured the Oscar-nominated song ’Miss Misery’ - by Elliott Smith.

And, er, Terry Callier was reportedly the inspiration for Tommy in ’Livin’ on a Prayer’.

You're just being silly now. Although it is true the cowboy in "Wanted Dead or Alive" was based on Al Green.

Alternate for the second link: Costello's "Alison" was produced by Nick Lowe, who also produced The Damned's first records.
