love that one. Does Jan 15 hold relevance?

I'm guessing the specific date was unintentional, since any January 15 on significant years for the song isn't a Monday, hah!

Bosco you nailed it - the black/grey/white makeup is gone now. It was a Galvanize video reference.
Never for money, always for love.

This was fun, but I don't appreciate the half measure by the creator.

When will we see Vengaboys or Eiffel 65 added?

While we are hard-lined into the history of Electronic music and with time to waste, here is a great tool to familiarize yourself with some sub-genres, artists, and groups you might not be familiar with.

Hope you don't mind, but I split the topic.

Any other images we're still trying to figure out. Besides that damned cigarette case!?

We actually already know the Cigarette case. It's the first Yellow Magic Orchestra album (along with the brown & green thing in the shelving). WN mentioned it a while back (and he got it from someone on Reddit, I reckon!).

If I understood correctly, the spacehoppper wasn't actually related to a general Birmingham rave/trance scene after all but is actually a specific artist. I haven't checked reddit to see if there was an answer to that one. Might check back here in a couple of days when Chembase + Reddit have everything figured out. Perhaps Bosco's fave artists will be in it now, and fingers crossed for some 2 Unlimited and Alice DeeJay as well.

Aphex Twin
Boards of Canada
Clockwork Orange
Daft Punk
Devo
Doctor Who
Justice
Kraftwerk
Massive Attack (the sign on the spilling chemical canister)
Moby (the spaceship)
Nine Inch Nails (lol at that one)
Orbital (the glasses with the lights)
Portishead
Prodigy (the crab and the matchbox)

Scooter! I had legitimately forgotten that guy existed.
Thanks, Coronavirus!  ::)

Action Jackson got Devo waaaay back in Reply #2. But you can have Sebastian
Actually maybe you can't. Others here think it's the Human League. I'm not sure which it is now.

Good spot. The Blue Monday date is strewn on the floor, rather disrespectfully now.  :(

EDIT ter:
deadmau5 (there's a dead mouse)

What do Bis and Ter mean? [EDIT: oh it seems to be a Latin-derived thing that French people use.]

Oh also, we have Herbie Hancock's mechanical Rockit legs on the left. But could the mechanical arm on the right be a reference to the Chems' Believe?

100% it's The Human League, not SebastiAn. If you look at the Dare cover, the grid lines are in the same spots and frame the face. My first instinct was Ross Ross Ross too though!

With all these double guesses, this thread just furthers the proof people just like to hear themselves talk/type  :P  Me included!  :P

Spoiler
2 Cones = Twin Peaks?

Beverly Hills Cop = the theme from the film. It was later made into "crazy frog", and while one doesn't exist without the other I'd be willing to debate which was more significant.

Theremin = Theremin. It was largely THE instrument/sound effect for Sci-Fi related films/TV back in the day.

Admittedly I started the spoilers, but do we still need them?
I do wish the viual artist would stick to one reference per act. He already has the "Go West" hemisphere hats in there for PSB. Did he need to add the cone hats too?

100% Believe, there's a traffic light hanging from it

Found another one : Donna Summer - I feel Love (the vinyl on the bottom right)
