Don’t forget your voucher. It’s somewhere in the back of your purse.

Meanwhile, here’s a little help with the musics rounds tonight.

First, at the Argyle, you’ll hear Showaddywaddy:

It’s a good job they invented colout TV in time for Showaddywaddy. It wouldn’t have the same. Although our house still had a black-and-white well into the 1980s

The other music round tip for tonight is for the Ship Inn, where Alicia Keys is in the line up.

Both songs are bangers. I do try to make the music round content fairly decent.

After all, you have to listen to them for a full fifteen to twenty seconds. Often twice. Three times if you count the answers, so I’d better make them good.

If there’s proper shite in the music round it only because I think it might be popular enough to appeal to the kind of people wear neckties round their heads like bandanas when they go to the pub with their mates from the office.

If you’re lucky you can sometimes see these sorts of people at the Newsroom.

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Lonestar (pic round)

Big mad ton fifty at the Brass, tonight

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

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

Lonestar look like “good ol’ boys”, which is to say they like cooked meat, smoking guns and passive women. To be fair, that’s entirely up to them.

Back on our own shores, both jackpots are sexy like Eurovision tonight. Come to both quizzes, win ’em and you’ll be nearly £300 to the good.

What could you do with that money? Maybe a last-minute trip to Tel Aviv for Eurovision which is now just over a week away.

Perhaps you could buy a set of Trivial Pursuit. Every home should have one.

But right now, Eurovision is more important that Triv and, in fact, it’s time for my Top 5 prediction.

It’s very difficult to pick a winner this year, but here we go:

  1. Cyprus
  2. Italy
  3. Netherlands
  4. Australia
  5. Greece

The 2019 Eurovision line-up is great. There are potential surprise winners all over the place: Malta and Czech Republic to name but two.

But of course, the real winners should be either be Portugal for their mad art piece or BDSM champs Hatari from Iceland.

Watch this if you haven’t already:

Blimey.

See ya later – x

Sunday 5th May 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Whitney Houston (music round)

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

Nice and calm at the Percy this week cos the Hibees are not at home, they’re away playing Rangers in Glasgow. Suits me.

Also, there’s a ninety quid pot bubbled up some come and get a face full of cash at the Persevere.

You can also get your dinner there; the food looks pretty good.

Meanwhile at The Tolbooth, we’re well into tourist season which means there’s usually an American team to take the piss out of. Happy days! (For the hard-of-thinking, the previous line is a JOKE.) Americans are welcome and respected).

And even though the the Rubber Gun Squad may be there tonight, they’ll be an easier team than usual to beat because they’ll glued to the World Snooker Championships final.

You know, I actually had a list round out with me the other week where I was going to ask to name any five quarter-finalists from last year’s snooker world championships.

But looking around the room, I realised that there was not one single team who looked liked they cared about snooker enough to really know what it is, let alone answer the question.

So I dropped the question. Was I right? Or are you all secret snooker fans? Let me know in the comments or approach me at the quiz with the word “I like snooker too actually”.

We’ll see.

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:

Crushing pop in 1987

Wow! It’s Whitney Houston when she was the Queen of Pop Music.

Anyway, come and join us at the quizzes tonight. You’ll love it.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Thursday 2nd May 2019 – Three Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh and Musselburgh:

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

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: The Ring (pic round)

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

Best jackpot tonight is out in Musselburgh where Kerry offers you a win of £120. Come on!

Ship Inn Crew

By the way, we had a team name last night called “Damp Tampon”. Hopefully you can beat that.

Meanwhile, here’s a little help with the music round at the Newsroom which tonight includes this song performed by Scottish Singer Emile Sande:

This is the kind of music that leaves me wondering what time the buses begin in the morning.

I can’t hate it but it holds my attention in the way that disasters in far away countries do: that is briefly and in a way that is less-than-complete.

But if this is your jam then who am I to criticize? Good luck to you.

Which ever quiz you go to tonight – remember to bring a team and I wish you GOOD LUCK!

Cheers,

Dr Paul

Wednesday Night – New Quiz on the Southside

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Calum Scott (music round)

9pm – Damm 27. Jackpot £40. Cheat: Kool & The Gang(music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Get Carter (pic round)

So we welcome South African quizmaster Shawn tonight, he debuts at a swanky new venue on the Southside called Damm 27.

Damm 27 describes itself as a bistro but if you squint your eyes a bit and buy a pint, it’s just a very nice boozer.

The quiz will ignite the passions and you might even find yourself in the company of well-off Edinburghers who like to splash the cash on bonnie cocktails. You never know.

Anyway – the place looks genuinely nice and Shawn would love to see you tonight from 9pm. Give him a chance and give the place a go.

Meanwhile, here are the free answers for tonight’s quizzes:

First is a music round answer for the Joker earlier on (7pm). It’s Calum Scott who I presume is some kind of X-Factor bloke…

Bloody awful stuff

Sure enough, his WIki bio has revealed that his breakthrough came on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ which could be renamed ‘Britain Must Be Stopped

There’s a gratifyingly disappointing detail in Mister Scott’s bio which is that he used to sing in a Maroon 5 tribute act called Maroon 4.

Can anyone think of any more debilitating showbiz gig than being in a Maroon 5 tribute?

And that’s fair comment but the bottom line is that this unknown-to-me mega-bastard has more than 350 million views on his video and likely DOING ALL RIGHT.

Does it matter that it’s nothing more than the act of slowing down a dance number and adding meaningful twitches on sad faces? Does it matter that this cheap template is what people accept as art?

Of course not. It’s the bottom line that matters. This is capitalism.

Meanwhile, here is the music round answer for Shawn’s quiz at Damm 27.

Something a lot more groovy: it’s Kool And The Gang:

By the way – if you try to watch that video and you feel all funny, it’s OK – it’s the video. It’s not you.

Swooooop!

Go and meet Shawn or I’ll see you tonight myself.

Either way:

Love,

Dr P

Monday 29th May 2019

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: The Cult (music 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

Sunday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Dad’s Army (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The Orb (music round)

Sunday night was OK last week despite a hom Hibs game on a Sunday, which the SFA have seen to provide THREE of in the post-split season. Thanks.

Hopefully tonight will be the same. Put it this way: if Hearts win there is more chance of the quiz being viable as most of the Hibs traffic then goes home.

We’ll see.

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 Tolbooth Tavern:

Wibbly Wobbly

It’s The Orb in the early 90s when everyone was riding high on some kind of spiritual and medical horse. It was cool. You had to be there.

Anyway, come and join us at the quizzes tonight. You’ll love it.

By the way – it’s Dead Pool time of month. You can get your entry in for May tonight

See you at the quiz tonight.

Thursday Night Quizzes

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: Bros (music round)

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Dappy (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Harry Styles (pic round).

Easter is over. Summer spreads out before us like a modern picnic blanket with a waterproof lining on one side.

The possibilities are endless.

Will we sweat more than our own bodyweight while trying to negotiate squads of Italian students on the Bridges?

Will we shiver and drench as a promising morning turns to shit in the afternoon?

Will we get semi-ironically sun-burned on a day out to North Berwick?

No one knows.

But right now it is not summer. It is time for the quiz. Here are the music round cheats for tonight:

First, it’s Bros, who were famous from the start. The song title was ironic.

I used to hate Bros at the time. I was into “cool” music and this was for my sisters. Looking back, they’re not so bad. The boy can certainly hold a tune.

Meanwhile the music round at the Ship Inn includes this slice of dross by societal misfit, Dappy.

Dappy. What a state. Don’t let it put you off attending the quiz though, as the clip is only around 15 seconds long.

Which ever quiz you go to tonight – remember to wear clothes and GOOD LUCK!

Wednesday 24th April – Two quizzes Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Whitesnake (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Tomb Raider (pic round)

Here is the free answer for tonight’s music round at the Joker. It’s 1980s megahit by big hairy soft-rockers Whitesnake.

When boy bands used to be good

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

Which are you: monkey or Aguirre?

See you tonight.

Monday 22nd April 2019

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.
