Cheat: The quiz includes Man 2 Man & Man Parrish in the music round (see vid below), a massive 80s banger of Jurassic proportions.
After the relative intellectual fervour of the Argyle, a fast cab whisks me off to the Newsroom where the transient and the drunk dominate the scene. As I’ve said before, if you ever want to actually win a quiz, just come to the Newsroom.
Jackpot: A quasi-terrific £50
Cheat: The quiz includes the answer Argentina, as part of the picture round.
Cheat: The music round tonight will include The Vaccines. This song:
I’ve just a had a look at the video. The guy doesn’t look like a pop singer at all. He looks like a guy who comes round to fix your computer but can’t work out what the problem is. He looks like the sort of bloke who doesn’t know what do do at a rave. He looks like his jokes are all preceded by the statement: “Listen. I’ve got this really good joke.”
That’s all a bit judgemental. Now I feel bad for the guy.
However, I’ve now just Wiki’d him. Turns he’s called Justin and the great-grandson of a famous painter and the son of a film-maker.
“…he grew up in a “musical household” and began playing music by borrowing his father’s guitars. It has been said that he loved Elvis during his childhood.
On Thursday, both the quizzes offer £50 jackpot/rollover. This means that even on an utterly basic night like tonight where both jackpots were won last week, I can still offer you a hundred quid.
Cellar Monkey (Argyle Bar), 7pm
Cheat: One of the answers tonight is “Kidderminster”
Cheat: There is a music round clip tonight by some singer-songwriter character called Grant-Lee Phillips. All singer-songwriters, of course, sound the same but if you watch the vid below then there’s a chance you’ll remember the song for tonight.
