7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Marc Chagall (pic round)
9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: The Chi-Lites (music round)
It’s half-term. Kids are everywhere. There’s only one way to escape them and that’s to come to the pub, get wasted on booze and do the quiz.
Here’s tonight’s music round cheat-o which is for the Brass Monkey at 9 o clock:
This is the best of all possible hair and the sweetest of sad soul.
This is the 1970s, a time and a place which is barred to us. Time travel is not real – youtube is as close as we can get.
There are a set of break-up records from the mid-seventies where you really feel for the guy singing.
As a child, these sad-story soul songs are some of the first pop records I can remember hearing and I believed that every word was true and related personally to the singer.
I used to feel so sorry for them, until I realised pop was poetic license and only quizzes were the truth.
Anyway – you’ll be weeping tonight if you miss the quiz. Also, with one day to Valentine’s – maybe tonight is the night you will meet the human of your dreams. All you have to do is be bright and witty at the quiz. It’s like a magnet.
