The Music That Vegans Listen To

Here is the winning entry (the first team to hand in ten decent answers that anyone had actually heard of):

Thursday Night Quizzes in Edinburgh

Pub quiz entertainment for you tonight:

7pm – The Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £150. Cheat: Joy Division are in the picture round. Miserable looking bunch.

9pm – Newsroom. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: There is a band called Kongos in the music round. They’re South African apparently. Here’s the song that’s in the music round:

 the band renamed themselves Joy Division in early 1978, borrowing their new name from the sex slavery wing of a Nazi concentration camp mentioned in the 1955 novel House of Dolls.

So now you know.
