Cryptic Band Names Quiz Help

I'm hoping you can all help to stop me going insane. I've completed 219 out of 225 of these bloody cryptic band/singer names and am now having a mental block with the last ones. Hoping someone can help me out.....

You know the sort of thing
Clue - Venom
Answer - Poison

Anyway, the ones I'm stuck on are.

1 Stealing the England Captain's Meat
2 Possibly Great
3 Interweave
4 Delicate and Sensitive Arabic Monarch
5 Of the French Spirit
6 Incendiary Bomb causes bereavement

Now I'd better get back to work


oops - just checked the spelling of no 3 on the net and its kris kross, tried it and it works so thanks again. Its now complete....will have to go and find some more to do.

Stealing the England Captain's Meat = Robin Beck (take away the "ham"). She did a Coke advert ages ago.

Possibly Great - could that be They Might Be Giants?

3. Interweave - Kriss Kross
4. Delicate and sensitive Arabic monarch - Chic?

I think 1. is definitely Beck.

Nah, trust me - it's Robin Beck - where would the stealing bit come in if it was just Beck?

I think 4 is Queen Latifah btw.

Stealing as in steal the 'ham' in Beckham = Beck?

If the stealing bit meant 'Robin' then you could not use it again to take away the ham later By your logic it would be Robin Beckham

We'll find out when he puts it into the spreadsheet anyway

Cheers all for your help

Answers were

1 Robin Beck
2 They might be giants
3 ???????
4 Queen Latifah
5 De La Soul
6 Napalm Death

Tried Kriss Kross and all sorts of variants but no go so am still puzzling on that one.

If anyones interested and maybe hasn't seen it before then the quiz can be found at

I'd say Lace for number 3.

Didn't make sense to me either. I only suggested it because a queen is a monarch and "latifah" sounds a bit Arabic!
