Up The Peak Of The Week

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat: Gomez (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Cherry (pic round)

Don’t stay inside crying. Come out to the pub tonight and win all the moneys.

Just think: £180 at the Joker. Sweet and nice. This could alleviate a power-bill problem or if all is sorted on the bills front, you could buy yourself a wee day out to Newcastle on the train and have plenty of money left to get pished when you arrive there.

You know, to fit in.

This might help: the cheat tip for tonight’s music round at the Joker. It’s Gomez who were popular for a short time round about 1999.

And when I say “popular”, what I mean is that this song got to number 21 in the charts and was more or less their biggest hit.

The video is a good idea – a recreation of the old health and safety films that used to fill up the gaps on TV between ‘Mister Benn’ and ‘Nationwide’.

Quality concept.

Anyway remember the wisdom: if you can possibly arrange it, bring someone older and someone younger to the quiz to be on your team. It’s one thing that an really make a difference to your score.

Quizzes Tonight – Wednesday Night In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Glaxo Smith Klein (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Slade (music round)

Big jackpot at the Monkey last week means minimum amount tonight.

Still loads of great fun to be had and I have now taken delivery of Cunto Cards so you can buy a pack off me tonight, directly.

Meanwhile, here is one of the music round pieces from the Monkey tonight. It’s from one of my favourite bands, Slade.

When I was a kid and first into pop music at the start of the 1980s, Slade were yesterday’s men, comedy characters from the dim and distant mid-nineteen-seventies.

You knew their songs, they’re ‘oldies’ were always on the radio. And you knew they were wacky: the bloke with the mirrors on his top hat and the gurn. The daft looking-cunt on guitar. Song titles with funny spelling. For instance: Skweeze Me Pleeze Me. A ha ha ha. So hilarious.

You knew them primarily for ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ which was virtually the British national anthem at that time. Literally everyone’s favourite song. No exceptions.

Then, just as they were in danger of becoming a ‘national treasure’ they bucked their own legacy and had a string of 1980s hits which were slightly less energetic than the 70s numbers but still had plenty of powerful pop quality.

This is one of them.

Come out and win tonight. Go on. Come and have feel.

Yo!
