The other great thing about tonight’s quiz at the Argyle is your chance to meet the organisers of Pint Fest, Scotland’s newest boutique music festival which is taking place in a back garden in Marchmont in May sometime.
The organisers live over the road from the Argyle and chose last week’s quiz to launch their extravaganza.
No bands booked when I last checked but it seems likely to be the event of the summer.
I hope they manage to book Suede.
I always liked Suede and I really liked this when it came out. But it seemed that no one agreed and it was the death of their glory days. Suede was over. Suede was finished. People moved on.
This is the cheat tune for tonight’s music quiz at the Argyle:
After that it was Radiohead and the Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys all that nonsense, as far as guitars were concerned. None of them as good as Suede.
The first of those three links is particularly 2001 because it’s introduced by Gail Porter and she references Jamie Theakston.
I think the sample in the Rui Da Silva song is Spandau Ballet, but I can’t quite place it.
If I wasn’t a quizmaster I think I’d produce electronic dance music, mainly built around samples of Spandau Ballet, Simple Minds, and Duran Duran songs of the early 1980s. It sounds like a decent way to make money.
It also sounds like an easy way to make fuck all money. I think there are quite a few procuders of electronic dance music based on old pop. I think it’s a buyers’ market.
So I’ll probably stick to quizzes just now. And of course, Cunto.
Phwooar. £100 at the Newsroom. Easy money! Don’t forget – Newsroom is the THICKEST PUB OF THE WEEK, due to the higher proportion of blow-ins and randoms rather than proper quiz teams. Come and take them on – take their money!
Meanwhile, here’s The Editors who look like they’ve just completed their course in reading gas meters and offering replacement ‘smart’ meters rather than a rock band. Just my opinion.
And they are very tiny, they live inside a lightbulb. This inspires no one. According to Wikipedia, NME labelled their sound as “dark disco“. Disco? Not much of a disco.
This is how white boys do real disco:
Still reading? – join my TWITTER for even more Dr Paul related “entertainment”.
Two rollovers last midweek sets up a cheeky Wednesday for your pocket. One-fifty at the Monkey. That’s like.. great.
How about the music round cheat? Here it is:
This is a modern song but I like it. I thought it was much more produced, but it’s pretty bare. The video is good as well. Nothing really happens except a lift gets faster and people become more extreme versions of themselves as the lift speeds up.
