the latest FdM members club competition asked for tracks by artists who've recorded using pseudonyms - bands or individuals; really good, really bad or really strange - they're all here - or will be when I get round to posting more of them...

we'll start with a few favourites, that were mentioned by several club members, beginning with:
Julian Cope, Paul McCartney, The Pretty Things, The Damned and David Bowie...


Martin Wright suggested Steve Wilson as IEM and Ride's Andy Bell as Glok; Robert Simpson offered Procol Harum and XTC, while Henry Schneider chipped in with David Johansen...


Steve Smith offered up an early Bowie, Nuno Robles a late Syd, Jonathan White an early Nick Saloman, john Hampstead a very iffy Matchbox and Steve Hallam an unusual Paul McCartney...


Dave Smith had a bad case of Corns, Steve Lade unmasked Superman, Tony Miller was in XTC, Dr Floyd was in Lurex and Tom Roche came up with 10cc...


Robert Musgrove went to work on an Egg, then Heaped it on and finally found an old frond; meanwhile Timelord Michalis came up with a Twink and Ernie Oakley a bunch of Grapes...


Reinhard came up with two tracks by Richard Wahnfried, which featuring two rather well-known guitarists (as well as Klaus Schulze), Colin Cunningham dug up The Moles, Andy Young dug Doug Sahm and Nik Williams unearthed an Ayreon covers album ...


Andy Bracken reminded us of Eddie Cochran in disguise, and then went onto a track that's just not Cricket, Nik Williams called for Dr and the Medics, leaving Craig Palmer to bring up the rear with Sonic Youth and Tony Blackburn...


But now I'll hand over to John Roberts, who came up with dozens of great suggestions, but I'll limit him to just 10; let's hear it for and from C.P. Lee, plus various Fairporters, Tame Impalas, Eels and Richard Ashcroft...


Here come The Clash, Prodigy, a Thom Yorke remix and a couple from Aphex Twin to round things off... ...
