7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Doom (pic round)

£100 jackpot tonight at the Brass Monkey Leith

One ton of money, tonight.

And here is the cheat music round clue for tonight. It’s the Cult at the Safari Lounge:

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

The Cult felt like an anachronism even at the time, while the world went dayglo pop, hip-hop non stop and dance, The Cult welded metal and rock with guitar acetylene and sung about “smoke stack lightning” and other Americanisms.

It seemed musty and smelly and old but it definitely rocked. Everyone liked ‘Love Removal Machine’.

The Cult sw off a challenge from Zodiac Mindwarp on the home front (they were jokers) but then Guns’n’Roses came along and did it bigger and (obviously) more American and that kind of put the Cult to bed.

I saw them once, at Glasgow Green, and they were excellent. The singer has got a great voice.

So £100 tops tonight. In the meantime, we say cheerio to the quiz at Saint Andrews Brewery Company. Hopefully Joshua will find another venue soon.

See ya later – x
