Sunday Night Quizzes, Edinburgh

Tonight’s line up of quiz action

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The music round includes Racey (see vid below).

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £60. Cheat: One of the picture round answers is The Bean.

Even in 1979, Racey were old-fashioned. There just wasn’t the demand for that kind of thing anymore. Except that they had four hits shifting this muck before everyone worked out that they didn’t like them and they were just a shit version of Showaddywaddy.

Then, moments later, all of the members of Racey were killed in a car crusher ‘accident’ in Wolverhampton which was perhaps hastily set-up by then-Education secretary Norman “Fist You” Tebbitt.

Today we remember Racey and their contribution to pop. RIP.
