7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Generation X (music round)
9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Faroes (pic round)
The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £150 up for grabs.
Also: summer seems to have hit the Newsroom hard and its been fairly quiet the last couple of weeks so you might find yourself with a better chance to win tonight than in most of the quiz venues.
Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:
The video is great: it has urban industrial squalor, rooftop zombie dance attack and electrical fightback. The song is good too.
The answer I have tonight is “Generation X” although the real story is more complicated than that. The band was originally “Generation X” but when this came out, they’d changed their name to “Gen X” BUT the single was a flop. THEN they split up and the singer, Billy Idol went solo. The video is from a later solo release, which was a hit but under his own name.
Gee, writing pop questions can be a minefield.
Remember kids, don’t write your own questions at home without the help of a professional.
More interestingly, the song is supposedly on the topic of masturbation, which itself is the posh word for having a wank, rubbing one out, feeding the ducks, flicking the bean, etc
That’s what they say anyway, same as they say it about ‘Blister In The Sun‘ by the Violent Femmes.
There’s also a song by 1970s prog-rock favourites Caravan titled ‘If I Could Do It All Over Again, Id Do It All Over You‘ which has to be suspect.
Anyway, if you’re still reading this you may enjoy my TWITTER for even more Dr Paul related infotainment.
Also, I will have Cunto Cards 2018 with me tonight, so stop me and buy a pack if you have someone’s birthday coming up. They make an ideal gift.
