Double Initials - NN

As suspected this week's post has proven to be somewhat more difficult than last weeks.
I was quite chuffed with the two acts that I had in mind and thought that maybe at least one would stump you all.
That thought was quickly shattered by 08.34!

The Swede was right in quicker than a Brexiteer with a World War reference with the one I first thought off Nina Nastasia. An American artist although her name sounds almost Transylvanian.
There is certainly a Gothic tinge to her work as this song from her 2003 album Road to Ruin demonstrates.It is not exactly laugh a minute stuff.

Fortunately our second act is. Nervous Norvus was referenced similtaneously by George and Ramone666 .His was a name I had in mind as I'm sure I had some stuff by him. If I have I couldn't find it . Fortutately Ramone was on hand to help me out.

Sorry Walter the I in Nine Inch Nails excludes them. Actually I'm not sorry at all.

Spence came in at the 11th hour with a suggestion for  The Nectarine No. 9. That's more like it!

Next week will probably be even trickier. I can only come up with one OO and I suspect that I will not by the only one to come up with it. Over to you.

Nina Nastasia - Regrets

Nervous Norvus - Ape Call

The Nectarine No. 9 - Don't Worry Babe You're Not The Only One Awake


  1. The obvious answer here is Ozzy Osbourne

  2. As above - and it has to be "Shot In The Dark"!

  3. I'm sure those two are being sarcastic, so I will state the obvious: The Only Ones

    1. Nicely done George. You took the words right out of my mouth.

  4. Oh-OK is the only one I could come up with.

  5. I give up … to be honest, I even wouldn't have thought of Ozzy, only The Only Ones came to mind ...

  6. Despite your brusque rebuffing of my kind offer of Mongolian throat singing last week, I am willing to help if you're desperate. I will send over two possibilities later. Neither of them are anything special, but they are yours if you want them.

  7. I expected you to say you could come up with Only One suggestion...

    Other than that, and Ozzy, I found a band called The On Offs on an old Mojo CD... and a Brazilian surf rock band called Os Ostras.

    And that was it.

  8. My votes would be for the Only Ones and Oh-OK. A distant third would be Holiday by the Other Ones. Mainstream pop schlock from the mid-'80s but listenable.
