The Tricorn Centre was a famed Brutalist shopping, apartment, nightclub and car park complex in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England. It was designed by Owen Luder and Rodney Gordon and took its name from the site's shape which from the air resembled a Tricorne hat. Constructed in the mid-1960s, it was demolished in 2004. It was home to one of the first Virgin Megastores and housed the largest Laser Quest arena in Europe.
The Portsmouth and Arundel Canal was a canal in the south of England that ran between Portsmouth and Arundel.

It was built by the Portsmouth & Arundel Navigation company.

As the Battle of Kosovo in 1389 is generally considered as the end of the medieval Serbian state, Despotovina, the successor of the Serbian Empire and the state of prince Lazar survived for 70 more years, experiencing a cultural and political renaissance in the first half of the XV century before it was conquered by the Ottomans in 1459. Even then, it continued in Hungarian exile until the mid 1500's.

The short-lived unit released their debut, Sap, on Nemesis Records in 1991, following that with the Headhunter release Sophomore Jinx in 1992. The latter was produced by Jack Endino.
