When boy bands used to be good

Just the ninety four million view on youtube. Super epic.

See you tonight.

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The Vibrators (music round)

7pm – St Andrews Brewing Co. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Basement Jaxx (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Droopy (pic round)

Joshua’s jackpot hits a high tonight.

Get yourself to Saint Andrews Brewing Company at 7pm for a crack at this one.

And here are the cheat music round clues for tonight. First the Vibrators at the Brass Monkey Leith:

From so long ago, its not even really a video

This Top of The Pops performance was probably the precise moment at which mainstream Britain became bored of punk.

The singer looks like a tourist, a middle-class kid who thinks that taking his tap aff and singing about marital aids will give him Sid-Vicious-style notoriety.

It’s almost as predictable as the evening news.

By contrast, check this terrific video by Basement Jaxx for a song that appears at Saint Andrews Brewing Company:

The video has everything from a pirate with a tone-arm for a hand to a Mexican stand-off with luchadors and scissor-paper-stone. Tremendous.

Anyway – it’s bank holiday Monday so drink and drink and drink and drunk and remember to come to the quiz.

Sunday 21st April 2019 Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Billy Bragg (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Humber Bridge (pic round)

Sunday night. Also Easter. I can imagine that it might be a wee bit messy around the edges tonight.

Trust in yourself, but keep a grip. That’s my advice.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need the free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Persevere:

A Bit Harsh

It’s Billy Bragg in 1988. I saw him at Barrowland a couple of years later and it was the same schtick – just Bragg and a guitar, no backing band, no support act.

Somehow he made that last for an hour and a half. Decent, likes although I don’t listen to him much these days. I think his voice finally did my head in and I had to quit.

Anyway if you are one of the “normals” then you odn’t have work tomorrow. Come to the quiz tonight.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Thursday 18th April – Three Quizzes Tonight

Thursday gives you a choice of three quizzes: one in Musselburgh and two in Edinburgh.

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Impressionism (pic round)

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Egypt (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Boomtown Rats (music round).

It’s still the Easter holidays and I’m still doing the childcare so today’s post is, once again, brief and functional.

If you demand more chat and banter and all that business, then simply come to the quiz tonight – a safe zone for adults, where no children may interfere.

So here are the music round cheat answers for tonight:

It’s the Boomtown Rats, fronted by Bob Geldof who vies with Morrissey for the Throne of Twats.

In this video he reminds me of BA Robertson who had the same schtick at around the same time, and that’s not a good thing.

Great song though.

Monday 15th April 2019 – Three Premier Quizzes Tonight

Three Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Brunei (pic round)

7pm – St Andrews Brewing Co. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Tracey Emin (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Spike Milligan (music round)

Joshua’s quiz at the Saint Andrews Brewing Co hits a high of £120 tonight.

Get yourself to Saint Andrews Brewing Company at 7pm for a crack at this one.

And here are the cheat music round clues for tonight. First the Spike Milligan song at the Safari Lounge quiz:

From so long ago, its not even really a video

Spike Milligan was your archetypal tortured comic genius, swinging wildly between depression and creating the kind of comedy which started everyone else that you like, years before they did.

Check this episode on youtube. It’s basically Monty Python but before Monty Python.

Anyway, the only true comedy is winning a big pocket of cash at one of tonight’s quizzes.

That’s always a laugh.

Daein it

See ya later – x

Sunday 14th April 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Lute (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Michael Zager Band (music round)

I went to Aberdeen yesterday and, as ever, it’s great to be out of there and back here.

I also saw one thousand seals on a beach. The beach is Newburgh. It’s great. Go and see the seals.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need these free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth:

Epic Disco

It’s from the high days of Disco, complete with classical influences and dancers in purple. All the dancers in the video are now over sixty years old.

Even rave is getting that way. All the ravers are married and driving cars to supermarkets instead of fields.

Some of them probably drive their car to a supermarket which is built on a piece of land which used to be a field where they once raved to the Prodigy and Suburban Delay

It must pain them with every bag of onions.

This is the ageing process. It’s OK, but it has its bitter moments.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Thursday 11th April

Tonight could be the last quizzes before we exit the EU forever. But probably not.

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Pulp (music round)

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Niall Horan (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Sofia Loren (pic round).

It’s Easter holidays and I’m doing the childcare so today’s post is brief and functional, like when you nip into WH Smith as fast as you possibly can to buy a bottle of water before you get on the train.

So here are the music round cheat answers for tonight:

First for The Ship Inn at Musselburgh where Kerry will be playing this bollocks by Niall Horan who used to be one of the directions out of One Direction:

And secondly at the Argyle Bar where I will be playing this by Pulp which feels epic at first but, upon repeated listens, becomes rather turgid:

Both these tunes are not the greatest but maybe Niall Horan wins because he is available in life-size cardboard cutout format:

If you buy that, remember to make sure you do it ironically

See you tonight

Wednesday 10th April

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: 2 Unlimited (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Lily (pic round)

Here is the free answer for tonight’s music round at the Joker. It’s 1990s mega rave-pop Dutch People: 2 Unlimited.

This was when Rave had come out of the fields and into the charts and having it large had become the new normal:

Fred, Cindy, Kate, Keith and Ricky

Includes the line: “Don’t just stand there, let’s get loose. I am Ray, I’ve got the juice.

Probably not 2 Unlimited’s finest moment.

But for a wee while there in the 1990s it was smileys, bandanas, tie-dye and ravey gloves. Literally everyone. Even cops, financial advisers and primary school teachers.

Monday 8th April 2019

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Leo Sayer (music round)

7pm – St Andrews Brewing Co. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Michael Buble (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Spain (pic round)

Joshua’s quiz at the Saint Andrews Brewing Co hits a high of £90 tonight.

As things have been going so far, it’s not the busiest quiz in the world so your chances of winning are good. Get along and try it out. 7pm at the Saint Andrews Brewing Company

Elsewhere we have my own two quizzes. Get involved.

Meanwhile, here are the cheat music round clues for tonight. First the Leo Sayer song at the Brass Monkey quiz:

From so long ago, its not even really a video

The song is packed with story-telling detail, including a blue Morris van which the guy in the story couldn’t drive last week because it was getting resprayed.

As every tedious comment on youtube will gleefully tell you: they don’t write ’em like that any more.

Nice work from the Sayer. Fun fact: he’s called that because he says things.

Meanwhile, here’s the Michael Buble song that turns up as a clip on Josh’s music round at the SABC:

It’s always annoyed me. It’s a song by a pop star about how you shouldn’t really want to be a pop star.

“Do as I say, not as I do”.

What a twat.

Anyway, the only true way to avoid being labelled a twat is to come to the quiz tonight.
