New Quiz

The Portobello Tap is a brand new quiz in a brand new pub in good old-fashioned Porty.

The seaside bit of Edinburgh has always been a cool place to go but now it’s a cool place to live and the increasing amount of cool people have forced the High Street to open a cool pub.

That pub is the Portobello Tap and they’re so cool that they have booked Kerry to come and present the DP Quiz every Monday night.

They do burgers till ten. Go and check it out, win the inaugural quiz and become an all time legend.


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

Dua Lipa – unconvincing attitude pose

It’s Dua Lipa. I’m not convinced by this song and video of hers.

If you really want to communicate to an ex-lover the idea that you “don’t give a fuck”, what’s the best way to do it?

Is it to ignore them?

Or is it to write and record a pop song, and create an accompanying pop video that features full-blown costume, make-up, dancers and choreography?

Anyway – what do I know?

The second featured music round clue for tonight relates to the Safari Lounge. It is this:

I’m more comfortable with this. It’s the boys from OMD, cutting about in a nice piece of industrial decline.

When the video for this song was shot (1980), you could find these disused factories everywhere. There were about six of them on every street.

You could play in there all day and neither your parents nor Jimmy Savile could ever find you.

Happy days.

See ya later – x
