Ive had my knucked rapped for cheating for not providing the pic! - give me a few minutes to find the relevant pic off the computer and I'll stick it here.

Well done although I was thinking of Asia in 1982 for Q6. However hes been in so many groups ...

Trevor horn formed Buggles and they had a big hit with "Video Killed the Radio Star" from the Album "The Age of Plastic"in 1979. That video was the very first on played on MTV USA when it started up (hence the reather tenuous satellite link :D) Geoff Downes was the keyboard maestro and they really launched the plinky plonky techno music trend.

After Buggles foundered TH went on to form ZTT and indeed it was FGTH who took the UK by storm in the mid 1980's

That quiz didnt last very long did it :(

But can you remember the name of second Buggles album?

Ive dug my beloved old copy of The Age of Plastic out of storage, and its still sounds good, but my copy is scratched to hell from all the dilapidated old turntables its been on over the last couple of decades :( I shall go and raid ebay for a new cd :)

The screen grab came from the video on MTV Germany a couple of weeks back! :D
