Okay 6. Janus...January starts the year (abbreviated Jan) and the rest is -us.

(I'll play more later, there are more clues than I can catch up with at the moment.)

Edit: just noticed there was already a second page! Okay, I definitely don't have time to play this now. Good game...I'll return to this one tonight.

#2 is gone - answered, prize awarded ... if brewndog hadn't nailed his feet to the thread, he'd be pushing up daisies!

Oh, and #6 has been answered, but the clue giver hasn't confirmed if the answer is 'correct' (myself, I would have said, as a clue 'anti-Epimetheus')

Ok, sorry, didn't see that! I've updated it just for you! I know 8 too, but only because it's a special interest of mine so I'll leave it for you lot, speshly since AKG was so close.

#6 is gone too.

I hope #11 is a real PF username. The best I can do is :

ramonm

ra = Egyptian sun god
mon = monday : starts the week (according to many)
m = meter, a distance

ramonm is a real PF member with 1 post about a year ago

#9 isn't about BEF is it ? Only number of theirs that I know, is Groove Thang.

BEF?

I wouldn't worry too much about the Sheffield band bit. Concentrate on the 14-28m/s bit.

Easy-ish one :

more cryptic now :

14. Northern mashing tooth, all mashed up

15. Appear to make sleeping sounds, without a ...

Too easy, the next one :

16. MD Albert ?
