Roles reversed from last week. Big jackpot at the Newsroom now. LARGE.
Meanwhile, here’s the Orange Juice tune from tonight’s music round at the Argyle:
Orange Juice. Wow. Remember them? Almost all of you WON’T, as you’re under 40. They, along with Altered Images and maybe Aztec Camera were branded ‘The sound of Young Scotland’.
This was the early 80s, a wee Scottish paradise time when there were still jobs in big places that made things and everyone lived like the people in ‘Gregory’s Girl’. It was usually summer and even in Scotland there were warm nights.
At the time, all the middle class boys who were SLIGHTLY older than based their look on Edwyn Collins, singer of the Orange Juice. They continued to base their look on Collins then, and forever since.
These men are now about 50 years old. Some of them might be at the quiz tonight.
First in an occasional series of reports detailing what the winning team did with their booze voucher.
LOCATION: The Argyle Bar
DATE: Last Thursday
2 x Tennents
3 x Bunnahabhain
1 x Black Sambuca
1 x Tequila
Nice work. I know nowt about whisky but apparently Bunnahabhain is a good one. The Sambuca and the Tequila add urban street edge while it’s all backed up with a pair of basic pints, the kind of pints that built Scotland into the international superpower that she is today.
In #dpquiz terms, Team Omni are a dissolute squad of young Edinburgh drunks, ruthlessly coming first or sometimes tenth in the quiz and winning a fair amount of booze and grumbling about the jackpot round without a single fucking care about the rest of the world.
