    Jason, it's your turn to post a scramble...

    LONG CHOSE OLDER TURNCOATS TIN SHONE / BAD GROUSEMEAT
    - song / band
    - very, very similar to previous scramble (not sure which is patterned after the other)
    - this band was Irish, though
    - and the subjects considered in the title are more teenage-focused
    - the theme still applies
    - theme applies in one of the two items, as above, but more specific
    - this song was released two years after the album in the previous scramble
    - band's name starts with the same letter as Ireland's biggest-selling rock band

    No worries, mate. This one's my shout!

    - band's name starts with the same letter as Ireland's biggest-selling rock band
    - words 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the title are identical to the previous scramble

    Alrighty, lemme try one here ...

    Clearheaded Died Links Toils/Mount
    - Song/band
    - Came back big in mid 1990s film
    - Guitar centric band; lead plays a left-handed Fender
    - Act started in the early 1960s
    - You might catch a wave while listening ...
    - The band's sound could be called "surf music"
    - The guitarist's first name is Richard, but he goes by something else
    - John Travolta made his 'comeback' via the aforementioned film

    Just checking, J - do the words in the solution actually come out to those lengths? You've done a fine job of scrambling and making words out of it!

    Okay, we'll have a point of clarification here... The scramble should be delivered in the same word format as the solution.

    For example, the answer here is

    Misirlou / Dick Dale and the Del-Tones

    So, the scramble ought to appear as, say...

    clearhea / dedd iedl ink sto ils-mount

    (I had that pointed out to me after my first entry here as well. )

    ANIMAL NEST PITS SILVER / REKLINE
