Thought it strange, Bill, my knowledge of rappers is non-existent, decided to take a look, and low and behold, there's Tantrum looking at me, knew it couldn't be our tantrum, but decided to check just in case!!
Bee, you're right about the names, even spotted a FIT :lol:

Bill, what have you done :?:
Really getting into this rap lark now :D
Discovered another one, could fit the bill (pardon the pun :) )
How about EMINEM for 5.
The rapper is seen in a video having a good old 'Rant at Trump'
Could say, he was having a 'Tantrum' (
(worth a try :lol: )

Congratulations Shelagh, Bert Weedon it is, and perfectly worked out as well.

Sorry but the rapper is not Eminem. I thought Bernie oils have got the rapper right away.

Well done with Bert Shelagh

#5 is for sure above my pay-grade....nearest I can get goes like this....
when I was a kid what we now call a "hissy fit" was referred to as a "DICKY fit"....
A "bit of" can be a LITTLE
And there is an American rapper ,,,,,,,,,,,,, LIL DICKY

Brilliant Shelagh, absolutely spot on with everything. You are now working them out from the clues and not thinking outside of the box too much :D :D

Well done

Well done on Peter Sarsted Shelagh and it looks like you've cracked #6 too!
The best bit of advice Bill gave us when I started doing these cryptics was think of synonyms... it looks to have worked with that last one

Blinkin' eck' Shelagh, my flabber has never been so gasted as with your last three answers. Absolutely spot on working out of the clues. :D :D Congratulations.

All complete now, without having to give any extra clues.
Well done everyone

:lol: Bill, sorry about your flabber being gasted, all very unintentional :)
Can't do much about the guessing though :roll: will have a go at curtailing enthusiasm :wink:

Compilation of such clever cryptic's must be very time consuming;
Thanks for this latest set, Bill :)

Bee thanks, and yes, must try to keep to the script :wink:

Hadn't really been on much over the wekend Bill so had missed the 'rap' clue until yesterday afternoon, when it immediately clicked. :D

Thanks again for keeping our grey matter toned up.

Thanks for comments.
I hope you are ready to start again, because here we go again.

Music acts
----------------

1. Could it be late night athletics on board ship?

2. Newly arrived mown grass with a charge.

3. Part of Albert in the recreational area.

4. The Spaniards shout a thank you as mother enters

5. Stop the highlander & place his raincoat in the pan.

6. Red Indian reversed and was observed.

7. Could be a permanent lease on a second class property.

8. Burn and dispose of about the beginning of March time.

9. After service I have a dry spell before using half of the gunfire.

10. Got the room and then got rather large having eaten inside.

Best of luck again

Bill, not sure about this one;
Take a guess at 3. Reba McEntire?
Part of Albert = Reba.
In recreational area = Rec.

Good start, Bernie, well done!

Sorry Shelagh, you're still way outside the box :) The clue does not mention anything being removed from the recreational area.
It's not The Creation

Still pondering on these Bill.

Probably just to eliminate them from enquiries here's a few wild stabs that only seem to fit the first half of the clues....

2 Greenday
6 Blackfoot Sue
7 Eternal

...and I reckon number 3 is Linkin Park (Albert is a watch chain so part of it is a link.... in park)

Bernie, spot on with Linkin Park, but the others are all incorrect I'm afraid.

Thanks Bill - just as I suspected.

Think I've cracked another one though...

8. Burn and dispose of about the beginning of March time.

Burn = char
Dispose of = rid
Put rid about char to give Richard

Beginning of March = mar
Time = x (maths symbol)
Gives us Marx

RICHARD MARX?
