The moment of revelation

Which reminds me, there was a period of a few months in the late eighties when I actually believed there were two bands, one called "In Excess" and another called "Inxes" (rhymes with "lynxes"). For some reason I never twigged to the fact that I only ever heard about In Excess and I only ever read about Inxes. Until one day I was on a plane listening to the pop music channel (8 separate channels!) through those old rubber-tube stethoscope-style earphones (aaah, no wonder I became a doctor) while perusing the playlist in the back of the in-flight magazine, and I realised that I was listening to INXS.

Don't even get me started on that band who sang about midlife crisis in reggae rhythm. Remember You_Be_40?

I even made a fool of myself in the record store and asked my sister, 'Who are the Inks?'

In UK UB40 is the number of an unemployment form, not a commentary about how dang old you were/are.
