7pm – The Strathie. Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Jackie Brown (pic round).

8pm – The Ormelie Tavern Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Nazareth (music round).

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

There’s a new gig in town: The Ormelie Tavern out at the Joppa end of Portobello.

Michael started there last Thursday and said it was a good ‘un. So if you’re down by the seaside – try something new.

Cheat Clues

The music round at the Ormelie tonight includes this song by Nazareth who came roaring out of Dunfermline to tear up the charts in the 1970s.

That’s proper Rockin’.

I wonder if they ever made it back to Fife from Planet Rock?

And if they did, was it a come down?

Anyway – here’s another music clue, this time for the music round at the Newsroom:

Cheer up love, it might never happen.

It’s an eighties power-belter by Heart and tells the story of the perfect one-night stand (“he did everything right”).

Then she meets him years later and she’s married to some other bloke but what happens next? The lyrics are ambiguous. Maybe she has another bite on the cherry. Maybe she doesn’t.

Has this ever happened to you? It’s a complicated world.

Anyway, see you at my quiz(zes) tonight or get yourself to the Ormelie tonight for a bit of Michael

Sunday 17th November

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Aquarius (pic round)

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

It’s Sunday – the day that God made especially for you to go to the pub, get wracked on booze and try winning the quiz.

Thank you, God.


And now, here’s the cheat item for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth Tavern. It’s a song by Fifers extraordinaire, Nazareth:

In 1973, everyone in Dunfermline looked like this

Terrific band, the old Nazareth. I remember seeing them when I was a small child and being slightly afraid of them. And at that point I didn’t even realize they were from Dunfermline.

Mind you, so is Barbara Dickson – and no one is afraid of her.

Anyway – there’s no need to be afraid of coming to the quiz because as per rule six, there are nae Fifers allowed.

Except for Michelle Pfeiffer.

Monday 14th October

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Johnny Bristol (music round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: The Small Faces (music round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Sofia Loren (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Pablo Picasso (pic round)


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:

Johnny Not-From-Bristol

That’s a pretty smooth soul sound but despite being named Johnny Bristol, Johnny Bristol is not FROM Bristol at all, he’s from North Carolina.

It’s a bit of a rip-off, these American entertainers cutting about with tricky UK place names in their personal names, making the FANS think they’re somewhere they’re not.

The same accusation can be levelled at Belinda Carlisle and Melissa Manchester.

And, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer – who’s never even BEEN to Kirkcaldy.

Meanwhile the Portobello Tap music round will contain this song by The Small Faces:

The Sixties – along time ago

This is a sixties song. Now, I’m getting pretty old but I still don’t remember the sixties. This is something that’s before my time.

I still know the song though – and so do you now – (if you listen to the vid)

See you tonight – x
