    Yes & No. I explained it above in post #40. I agree with you though, for me the opposite of Machine is Man.

    A machine is more opposite to an organ than a cell is

    I don't know stump but I know the others. I do know some UK new wave/punk and post punk bands.

    Yep. It's actually much better than some of mine. I wouldn't have guessed Soft Cell either though.

    True...it's cool though, threads like this really test one's vocabulary.

    Not an opposite but:
    Monroe Charles

    Now back to the opposites, I thought I'd throw out a few albums now:

    Sour Milk
    Apprentices of Fantasy
    Less (OST)
    Cupful of Public Information
    Don't Look at Anyone Else
    Drummer at the Battlements of Dusk (That is so good, that could actually work as an LP title)
    Angels & Witches
    Natural Pain
    Losing the Smell

    Off the top of my head(UK post punk/ new wave etc): The Stranglers, My bloody Valentine, Mission UK, The Buzzcocks, The Fall, PIL, Cabaret Voltaire, Simple Minds, Japan, Wire, Siousie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen, Ultravox, XTC. I'm no expert though. I'd have to think more about it but there are lots of bands from the UK from that time period. I admit I cheated by searching out some of those although I have heard of all of them.

    Excellent!

    The ones you didn't get, as I intended anyway
    Sour milk = Fresh Cream (sour as in off)
    Natural Pain = Technical Ecstasy (Black Sabbath album)
    Losing the Smell = Acquiring the Taste (GG)

    Excellent. This is more fun than britches full of leeches. (Milk - Cream? Natural - Technical? Nevermind, it's all in fun)

    Actually,in my profesional world yes. We talk about natural disasters and technical disasters, the older term was man-made disasters.

    landslide = natural
    emission of radioactive material = technical/man-made
    train crash = technical
    flood = natural

    Can were originally called The Can, before they realized the "international implications" of the definite article. I was trying to figure out what the opposite of The Can would be. Dinner table, perhaps? Or Kitchen sink?
