9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: K7 (music round)

9pm – The Raging Bull, Lothian Road. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Marmoset (pic round)


Michael is now up and running on Wednesday nights at the Raging Bull on Lothian Road. It’s a nice boozer and if you’re anywhere near Tollcross you should check it tonight.Quiz is at 9pm.


Here’s the detail for the music round cheat tips: First of all it’s worth pointing out that the music round at the Joker and the Thief tonight is all about Eurovision and all the answers are countries (all the songs are WINNING songs). This 2011 winner is from Azerbaijan:

Like I say, all the tracks in the Joker/Thief music round tonight are Eurovision winners so it might be worth nine minutes of your time watching this video

The other music round clue for tonight refers to the music round at Brass Monkey and is this ultra-90s song by hip-hop collective K7:


This may have been what street life was like in Los Angeles in the 1990s, but it didn’t look like that in Glasgow, I can tell you.

I looked more like this:

Dr Paul flyering for Boudoir, 1992
Flyering in ’92

That’s me pasting up flyers for the first night of our club ‘Boudoir‘ which ran from approximately ’92-’97 in Glasgow.

Streetlife, baby. The Nineties.

It’s amazing that we are all still alive. Celebrate longevity – come to the quiz tonight. See you later at my quiz or go and see Michael at the Raging Bull.

Wednesday 12th Dec 2018 – Pub Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Ra Ra Rasputin by Boney M (pic round)

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

Christmas. What is it good for, absolutely nothing. Say it again.

Make sure you combat the season of woe by getting pished. And if you’re going to get pished then you might as well do it in the pub where all your friends are drinking too and so it is better.

And if you’re going to get pished in the pub then you may as well do it when the pub quiz is on so you can win MORE BOOZE or indeed money which you can spend on EVEN MORE BOOZE.

It’s a beautiful circle of life, as Elton John so rightly pointed out.

I really am blethering today. Here’s tonight’s music round cheat clue which is for the Brass Monkey on Drummond Street:

Bis are a brilliant Glasgow band. In fact, I’m sure one of them used to come to the quiz when I was based in the G. I could be wrong.

Twenty years later, they’re still on tour – you can follow them on Twitter

And this is what they look like now:


Anyway, Bis are great but come to the quiz and we’ll all live happily ever after.

Sunday Is Funday

Sunday was invented by Jesus and The Seven Dwarves to bring respite and pleasure to the masses. That’s you.

Come and experience this human bonus tonight at:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: A band called Chvrches are in the music round. See video below to hear the tune.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Your old pal Nelson Mandela is represented in the picture round.

The Chvrches are from Glasgow. To someone my age their songs sound like Depeche Mode crossed with Altered Images. Not bad likes.

Boozy Weegies Trump Capital Colleagues

I had a nice wee extra gig down in the basement of the Newsroom the other week doing a quiz for the staff of Thomson Solicitors.

The deal was that the staff from the Glasgow office came through to join their Edinburgh colleagues, so that opened up a convenient Glasgow v Edinburgh aspect to the quiz.

The final scores were Glasgow 38 – 27 Edinburgh and this heavy defeat was compounded by the fact that everyone from Glasgow managed to do this whilst five times as pissed.

Stereotypes are sometimes true 🙂

Old Skool Past Blasts at Newsroom

The Newsroom was nice and festival-busy on Thursday night. I swear there were some “famous” folk who I kind of half-recognised kicking about but that’s Edinburgh in August for you.

This mob were the winners:

quiz winners
Don't You Open That Trap Door

They took the”champagne” but more interesting from my point of view were some blasts from my murky old Glasgow quizzing past.

Legendary team THE BEAST APPRECIATION SOCIETY made the crossing:

The Beast Appreciation Society

There they are. Well two of them anyway: David O’D on the left and Gary “Gary” McGary on the right. The rest have returned to Norway or become deer-handlers or quizmasters or whatever.

Oddly enough, on the same night that the BAS cropped up, so did SABREFUCK although they are all grown up now and called themselves LETS GET QUIZZICLE.

Lets Get Quizzicle aka Sabrefuck

Sabrefuck used to do pretty-well-for-a-team-of-birds at Bar Radio in Ashton Lane, Glasgow and it was good to see them again (well, two original members again but hey…)

They have kept the quality going and made it into the final but unfortunately we had no winner of the money so we are playing for a ball-busting £20 next week. Fucking wow.
