Sunday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action In Leith and The Old Town

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Billie Holiday (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Ultravox (music round)

I used to love Ultravox when I was a kid. They sounded so cool. Here’s their tune which is part of the music round at the Tolbooth tonight.

The video is something to do with aviation and the war and the South Coast of England and architecture and monuments, all the same kind of shit OMD used to be into.

Classy business.

By the way, here are some Persevere moments:

Edinburgh Pub Quiz Thursday Night. Mega Jackpot Tonight

Big old jackpot tonight at the Argyle, the biggest seen there for a wee while. My tip: get in for half six and you’ll almost certainly get a seat. If you turn up at quarter to seven or later, you might struggle to get a seat.

There’s also the Newsroom tonight. Loads of seats there.

7pm – The Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot: £240. Cheat news: picture round includes the answer Twin Peaks

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot: £150. Cheat news: one of the music round pieces is by OMD. See video below to hear the tune.

This is just one of OMD’s great eighties hits which were all about technology. They were such geeks, Such cool geeks.

They also did one called ‘Electricity‘ and one called ‘Messages

Both absolute storming synth pop classics. Top band. Dressed like maths teachers. Are you a maths teacher? Don’t get upset by that last remark. Download some software and make synth pop. Then everyone will think you are cool. You think people think you are cool now? They don’t. Don’t think you dress like that? You do.
