Let's bring them forward to make life easier...

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

1. Could it be late night athletics on board ship? DEXY'S MIDNIGHT RUNNERS

2. Newly arrived mown grass with a charge. JUSTIN HAYWARD

3. Part of Albert in the recreational area. LINKIN PARK

4. The Spaniards shout a thank you as mother enters

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

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. RICHARD MARX

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

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

Thanks Bernie.
I really thought 4. Would have gone a lot quicker than this.

Not Otis Shelagh. Try putting a comma after red and another after Indian.

Tried different approach, Bill,
Still not found it.."Dan Reed" or Dan Reed Network! (nearest I could get)
Dan from Indian,
Reed from Red or Read for Observed!!

Wondering if this could be a rapper called Redman?

Red as in read = observed.

Not Redman Shelagh. Have a go at 4. I think that is by far the easiest one.

Back to Red Indian question, Bill, just had another idea :idea: here goes;

6. Judge Dread?
Judged Red!
7. Leona Lewis..
Lease - Le
On A = Leona
Device used in building - Lewis (best I can do)

'Ole' to Bern for getting no 4 :D

Neither of those Shelagh. No 6 has nothing to do with 'read' and so you can forget that line of thought. :)

No Bill, I was focusing on the word Judged as being observed, and Red from Dread!
Thought it could work, but never mind :roll:

Could 10 be The Pretenders? as it sounds like 'eaten' inside

I'm not at all confident with this effort :lol:

Bernie & Shelagh, neither of those are correct.

7. Try putting a comma after permanent, and it might un'lock' the answer and cause you less s'tress'

6. As I have said before, "put a comma after red, and after Indian, and then go through the clue again. It is a three part answer.

10. A duo

Bill, with all this talk of tress and locks and your tip about permanent.. I'm guessing we should all be recalling "which twin has the TONY"
A lease can be a contract to RENT and 2nd class can be a B so my guess for #7 is TONY BRENT?

Good thinking, Bee, how could I forget Toni, all those lovely waves and curls, but what a pong that lotion gave off :roll: :lol:

Before I take a break, another couple of 'eaten' duos to add to the list;
McFadden and Whitehead,
Renee and Renato,
Probably loads more, but enough checking for now :roll: :)

Hiya Bill,
head being a little clearer today :)
Take another stab at 6.

D:ream?
Reversed the letter D from red = DRE
American = AM
I AM Indian - Is a film title = Observed

Sorry Shelagh, not D.ream. You are thinking too much outside the box again. Try reversing Red & Indian. :)
Have a look at what I said about the answer on Monday.

Just a little tidy up;
So what we have left is;

6. Red,,,,,,,,,, Indian,,,,,,,,, reversed and was observed.

Which is a Group from 90s & 00s

I think this has gone on long enough now. Nobody seems to have picked up me saying it was a three part answer :cry:
Reverse Red & Indian, then think of something that is Indian and then what is Red? Then a word that sounds like observed.
If it has not been solved by tomorrow a.m. I will give the answer.
