define: pandemic

With regards to avian flu, a pandemic or global epidemic is an outbreak of an infectious disease that affects people or animals over an extensive geographical area (from Greek pan all + demos people). Just in case anyone else was wondering after hearing or reading it every bleedin' 5 minutes for the last few days.

1. I wonder how it relates to pandemonium?
2. Whatever happened to the band 'Andy Pandemonium', student-friendly, early 80s South Wales gig stalwarts?
