Quizzes Tonight: Brass and Safari

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Beijing.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: one of the answers in the music round is Reef. This was a UK band that had hits in the 90s. I think they were from Devon or somehwere. Their aesthetic was surfy-rock.

The guy had long hair when there wasn’t a lot of it about so you had to like him for that even if the songs sound like derivatives from the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ main stock.

I mean, if you want “rock”, just listen to Motorhead.

If you do listen to Motorhead, all problems will be solved.

I guarantee it.

I’m a doctor.

Tonight’s Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Thursday:

Argyle Bar (Cellar), 7pm. Jackpot: £90, Cheat “Motorhead” – see vid below

Newsroom, 9pm. Jackpot £150. Cheat “Lenin

The thing about Motorhead is that they were actually good.

A lot of people think they were some kind of joke or trope.

But the songs stand up, even as Lemmy settles into a bit of a break.

A lot of people think it’s just The Ace of Spades (I thought so for many years), but there’s much more to the ‘Head than their best-known tune.

Some of my favourites are ‘Bomber’, ‘Iron Horse – Born To Lose’, ‘The Hammer,’ ‘Killed By Death’ and ‘We Are The Road Crew’. Look ’em up on youtube anytime you like.

A clip of this is in the music round at the Argyle tonight:
