Sunday Night Quizzes, Edinburgh

Tonight’s line up of quiz action

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The music round includes Racey (see vid below).

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £60. Cheat: One of the picture round answers is The Bean.

Even in 1979, Racey were old-fashioned. There just wasn’t the demand for that kind of thing anymore. Except that they had four hits shifting this muck before everyone worked out that they didn’t like them and they were just a shit version of Showaddywaddy.

Then, moments later, all of the members of Racey were killed in a car crusher ‘accident’ in Wolverhampton which was perhaps hastily set-up by then-Education secretary Norman “Fist You” Tebbitt.

Today we remember Racey and their contribution to pop. RIP.

Thirsty Thursday? Get Pished. Win Hard.

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (And Cellar) – Jackpot £90. Cheat: Pic round includes Moulin Rouge

9pm – The Newsroom – Jackpot £50. Cheat: Music round includes Embrace (see vid below).

I don’t get “Embrace”. For starters it’s a poor name for a band. If you’re going for seven-letters, if that’s what you really really want then there are loads better things to name your band.

For example:

  1. Genesis
  2. Madness
  3. Man O War
  4. Level 42
  5. Caravan
  6. Cola Boy
  7. The Fall

    AND – all seven of them are better Embrace. So stick it up your arse Embrace. You’re at best the eighth-best seven-letter act in pop.

Sunday Quiz Service In The Great Village of Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s like a daft wee village and we’re all pals and we all know each other. Come and meet everyone tongiht at the quizzes:

6pm – The PErsevere. Jackpot £90. Cheat: The picture round includes Billy Joel. Yeah, the piano man.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The music round contains a horrible song by Train. See video below to hear the song:

I’m not a hundred per cent sure why I hate this song so much.

I feel it’s part of a shitty trend of American bands who sing seemingly heartfelt songs when you know they couldn’t give a monkey’s.

Fake emotion. Like someone pretending they like the cake you made. I can’t be dealing with it.

Fake emotion. Like he is definitely going to be in love with this bird for ever, guaranteed, not just for one night, promise. And he feel this so deeply he has to make a song about it and wear an “honest” looking denim jacket to complete the look, when he clearly just wants his hole.

Fake emotion. Fake people. Fake news. #Sad.

Plus, they’re called ‘Train’. That’s shit.

Monday Pub Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes for Monday night in Edinburgh:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The music round contains a song by Joan Osborne. See vid below to hear the song. It was a big hit in nineteen ninety six, when you were just a little baby.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Joseph Turner.

We had a £100 winner last week at he Monkey Leith so we’re back to £50 this week. This means that for a rare week, the jackpot at the Safari Lounge is bigger than the monday monkey.

Come along and experience wildlife, food and spirit of the wide plains of Africa, except distilled into a small pub in Abbeyhill.

Incidentally: everyone says the food at the Safari is great. It certainly looks good.

Here’s that Joan Osborne song. It whines a bit although you can’t deny, it has a certain hook:
