Nth degree(s) of separation?

Nth degree(s) of separation?
September 18, 2023 10:19PM
I was just listening to the expanded version of Julian Cope’s Jehovahkill and came upon this idea. I’m not sure how far it can go….

Julian Cope has a song called Michael Rother.
Michael Rother was in Neu!, who has a song called Negativland.
Negativland has a ‘song’called Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson was in the Jackson 5, who recorded ABC.
ABC recorded a song called United Kingdom.
…Did UK record a song that shares a name with a band??
Or you could branch off at Michael Jackson and say he recorded a song called Scream.
DC’s Scream recorded a song called Rain.
Rain was another DC band w/ Eli Janney, who recorded the song Plush with GVSB.
The band Plush recorded a song called The Woods.
The Woods were a band on Twin/Tone who recorded a song called Sand.
Sand were either the ‘70s Krautrock band, or a collaboration on Creation between Dick Green and Ed Ball from the Times and TVPs…
The German band recorded a song called Power Station on their Ultraphonic Seraphim release.
The Power Station recorded a Song called Dope.
Dope is another Julian Cope recording project who recorded the track The Dee Dee Ramone Story.
The Ramones recorded (a) Bad Brain…or option (b) Pinhead, a VT band (w/ Mark Spencer)….
…Or another branch...Power Station also recorded a song called Shut Up (**branch below), which is a collaboration between Robin Amos and Glenn Jones, later of cul-de-sac.
Cul-de-sac recorded a song called Doldrums.
Doldrums were a band with Justin from Pitchblende, who recorded a song called Kevorkian.
François Kevorkian is a DJ/producer /engineer who produced the song Sleazy on the Jah Wobble/Edge/Czukay Snake Charmer EP.
Sleazy is the nom-de-disque of Peter Christopherson. Choose your tangent…PTV/TG/Coil/Hipgnosis….
**Shut Up recorded a song called The Four Horsemen, who were an LA band on Def American….

Maybe this is a fool/music geek’s errand, but maybe with a bunch of thought, there’s a radio show in here, Delvin? Or not.
Guaranteed to be a jarring listen!!

Another detour could be that "Power Station" is English for Kraftwerk.

Thx Zoo!
Utopia did a song called Caravan.
The band Caravan did a song called Ride.
(And we are out of the Prog ghetto and back in TP territory.)

Man, it would take some serious work to pull together a two-hour set of this. (Or it would, if you guys weren't already doing it for me.)
