£80 at monkey tonight. Del Amitri stain the Music Round

£80 jackpot tonight at Brass Monkey on Drummond Street

All Scottish music round at the quiz tonight and includes Del Amitri performing the official Scotland song from the last time Scotland qualified for a world cup, which was 1998

Some of the youtube comments for this are excellent:

“Ally’s Army is a drinking song! Don’t Come Home Too Soon is a song I’d want to make myself an alcoholic over.”

“the majority of people here don’t seem to get its an insult to scotland”

“You are aware that it wasn’t meant for the World Cup, it was meant for ambiguous purposes, right? Del Amitri was asked by the Scottish team to use the song for their anthem. Technically, the team insulted themselves.”

“Before the postcards was a little bit too soon.”

“Del amitri said after the he wrote the song not long after an old man spoke to him in a pub and asked aren’t you the guy who wrote don’t come home too soon? Del says yes I am and the old man just shakes his head and says you should be ashamed of yourself”

“losers song”

“Now they don’t even bother going. Out of churlishness.”

“Love the kilt, nice legs…Great song, what else is there to wish for??”

“HAHAHA this cracks me up.  I like it because it’s a nice slow rock ballad, but it’s in stark contrast to the song of 20 years ago, about how the Scots were going to win the cup.”

“one of the best footie songs ever”

“Possibly the worst football song ever, but as a song, its not bad.”

“like the video of colin hendry in the background, trying to do keepie uppies. if anything should have shown we were guaranteed to come home too soon, it was that!”

Hoary Old Politician From 1920s Gives You A Clue

Tonight’s quiz carries a jackpot of £60 and starts at 7pm at Brass Monkey Leith, your premier Leith Walk establishment for that kind of thing.

Cheat news: one of the possible answers tonight is Andrew Bonar-Law who was a politician kunto from the 1920s._andrewbonarlawHe looks like a right old barrel of laughs, as you can see. In fact, he looks like Paw Broon is Paw Broon was really posh and not habitually drunk and angry.

Unlike Paw Broon, Bonar-Law had a top class parliamentary career and ended up Prim Minister. Mind you as soon as he got the job of PM he pretty much died immediately (after only 211 days in office), so there’s your fucking luck right there.

Paw Broon is still alive.
