induct Bon Jovi (????!!!!) it can only mean two things: firstly,

DJs, painters... even recording studios or other landmarks. Anyone
or anywhere or anything that you consider has made a valuable
contribution to British Psych. The nominee with the most votes will
receive Honorary Membership into MS HOPS.
The Ten (10) acts inducted in 2005 were:
The Pretty Things, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kaleidoscope, Donovan,
Blossom Toes, Creation, The Move, Tomorrow and Tintern Abbey, so

Abbey Road Recording Studios, so once again, a vote for them this
year is a vote wasted.
Thanks for your time, and I'm looking forward to receiving your all-
