Yeaaah!
Louise Rutkowski, singer with This Mortal Coil and the Hope Blister.
Pretty obscure for OFs like me, Toffeeman, shows the power of google.

Let me give the next one a few minutes thought.

Yorks, Sussex and Classical all went west. Progressed to biscuits, keys, blades. Look at them. Unraveled it yet?

I would never of heard of her if she hadn't joined the Y*h** Randy Newman forum and produced a CD of RN songs (6 songs). Anyway great voice and hearing songs from different eras with similar arrangements forced me to reconsider the quality of the more recent stuff (in a good way).

Amberley...is this a description or did you mean to post this on the 'Crack The Code' thread?

Classical, Ravel, blades - something to do with Bolero and Torvill and Dean? Can't get the rest to fit - Jayne Torvill worked in an office, and must have therefore eaten a lot of biscuits, and Dean was a policeman - handcuffs/keys - nah, it's not really working, is it?

No they are pukka clues to a genuine musician. Albeit a bit cryptic.
Try this then:
Yorks, Sussex and Classical all went west. Progressed to biscuits, keys, blades. Played on the island 68, 69 and 70 beside the lake.
Look at them oils. Unraveled it yet?

OK let me unravel the first part.
Born in West Yorkshire, raised in West Sussex, studied Western Classical music.
Prog...

Very clever cryptic clue Amberley, but I don't think I'd ever have twigged without help. Are you a fan of 'Round Britain Quiz' by any chance?

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2010 11:11:08 BDT
I've heard it a few times. Too easy for me though!! ;)
Right you are sir, over to you.

Thanks Amberley (I'm not a 'sir' by the way).

I'm not going to attempt to be cryptic this time, might give it a go in future though.

I'm a singer/songwriter/producer born in a major Southern city in 1966. I moved to Nashville in the early 90s. On stage I've been joined by such luminaries as Marianne faithful and Chet Atkins. I produced 7 albums between 1998 and 2009. My 2006 album was recorded in England and featured guest appearances by Mark Knopfler, Tim O' Brien and Ralph Stanley. With such a range of high profile admirers and collaborators, how come I'm not better known? And who am I?

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2010 11:52:58 BDT
Yeah Amberley!!! nocheese is a Rockin' Chick!

Is it Paul Burch nocheese?

By the way...my own feeling on the cryptic thing is that this thread will be more or less the same as 'Crack the Code', I reckon it should stay as Leftin suggested at the beginning..but whatever I'll go with the flow.

nocheese says:
It is indeed Paul Burch, Schiz. How did you get it so quickly? I think you have a good point about similarity to 'Crack', but I wouldn't be averse to the odd cryptic clue as long as it was a well known artist.

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2010 13:24:44 BDT
Apologies for the erroneous assumption, nocheese.
OK, no more word-games for now.

nocheese says:
That's OK, Amberley, you are by no means the first, (eh, Schiz?).

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2010 15:03:07 BDT
Yeah I thought she was 'batting for the other side' or a 'friend of Dorothy's' originally! I checked out her profile and there was all sorts of girlie stuff like Doris Day or somesuch on there...I automatically assumed (which you should never do!) that nocheese was a gay male! Oh well.

Born Houston, Texas this performer made his name in the U.K. appearing on Beatles specials in the 60's and a number of minor hits followed. He had future famous 'heavy' backing for his 1969 album.
The 70's saw him playing the cabaret and nightclub circuit. In the 80's he'd reinvented himself as a musical stage performer.

In reply to an earlier post on 16 Apr 2010 22:11:33 BDT
Must be Billy Preston. Seem to recall he played keyboard on Let It Be among others, and his birthplace checks out on Wiki. The heavy backing was God, no less?

Nope!

Who was the 'heavy' band that first appeared in '69?

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Apr 2010 22:06:02 BDT
Led Zep?

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Apr 2010 01:53:30 BDT
And so?

Hi guys. The official attempt to get Tina turner - the best to number one in the UK charts has now begun in support of our troops in iraq. Please support us by downloading the song from this site for only 79p. This is not a weak attempt as we have a facebook group with over 20,000 members and word spreading fast throughout the supporters of Tina and supporters of Rangers Football Club, as this is their adopted anthem. Thank you for your support. Support our troops!

Schiz - is it PJ Proby? (And thanks to Angela for bringing the thread back to the top, but I hate that bloody song and you couldn't pay me to download it).

In the absence of confirmation from His Schizness, I'm going to assume I'm right and set another:

Hailing from Devon, this guitarist achieved celebrity as a founding member of a popular 60s group. He left them in 1969 to form a country rock band whose name was inspired by the 2 countries of origin of the band members.
During the 80s and 90s he lived in Canada where he worked as a graphic artist.
He now lives in Denmark, and in spite of persistent rumours of a reunion with his original band, has apparently no further interest in the music business.
