9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Mark Rothko is in the picture round. There’s no way anyone in the Newsroom will know that. There were a group of suit-men last week who literally had the ties-round-head-thing going on, even though it’s nowhere near Christmas.
Don’t forgo clicking and listening this time. This jazz is heavy and deep prog velvetsex. Come on.
The music video is kinda meaningless and the tune is forgettable but there is some decent dancing in there. Almost worth a watch on its own but not quite. The only reason to click would be to get a heads up on one of tonight’s music round selects.
Come and grab some quiz fun and win cash. TONIGHT!
7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Music round includes Klaxons (see vid below).
9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is penguin
The Klaxons are here at Glastonbury in 2007.
I am of a generally liberal and liberated mindset but I will punch you in the throat if you say “Glasto”. For some reason that shit winds me up.
I cannae go it.
Anyway – The Klaxons were a fun group in the zeroes but the original of this song is much older and comes from the time in the early 90s when rave culture was fingering the pop charts for the first time.
The act was called Kicks Like A Mule
Unlike a lot of the poppier rave chart stuff like 2 Unlimited, this was a chart hit that did actually sound similar to stuff that was getting played at actual raves.
Anyway, there’s nowt more boring than an old quizmaster raving on about the days of rave, so I’ll shut the fuck up now.
I remember 1985 when the Midge Ure video came out and everyone was freaking out about the pin-screen thing.
I’m pretty sure they did a feature about it on Blue Peter.
The pin thing was a like a revolution of entertainment.
It was as if life would never be the same again now the pin thing had arrived. Life was going to be different.
The craze lasted roughly seventeen minutes and by 1986 your pin-screen was the most passe thing of all time. You were already a retard if you still had one, despite being the coolest kid in school a matter of week earlier.
Now you can get em in the poundy and if I’m in there getting shit prizes for the quiz and I spot one, I still always think of Midge Ure.
