Wednesday 27th Feb

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Humpback Whale (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Jan Hammer (pic round)

Wednesday night. You feel it? Yeah. Me too.

The thing about reading this is you get a wee boost: a free answer. The free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass is Jan Hammer who impressed us in the 1980s with his large keyboards.

Flamingos and Speedboats

Before looking up Wikipedia, I’m going to predict whether Jan Hammer is still alive or whether he is now dead. I’m going to go for ALIVE.

Yass. He’s alive and he is 70 years old. He’ll be 71 if he makes it mid-April. Wiki tells me that Hammer also did the music for two series of ‘Chancer’, a British TV series starring Clive Owen as a conman which I simply have no memory of whatsoever.

To be honest, the theme tune is a bit shit:

So that’s Jan Hammer. Underwhelming.

One thing that is NOT underwhelming is the thrill and pleasure you get from winning the quiz. It’s a feeling like no other feeling. Just look at these people:
