Sun 18 Nov – Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: The Shamen (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Italy (pic round)

The tune for the cheat is tinged with tragedy.

In the days after filming the video in Tenerife for this 1991, Shamen member Will Sinnott died while swimming in the sea.

He was only 30.

The Shamen had been going for years but were just breaking big at this point. He got to be a pop star for a moment and the he died.

I guess dem’s da breaks.

Here is the video:

Anyway, see you at the quiz tonight and don’t forget your shoes, cos it’s November and you don’t want to be cutting about with nae shoes.

Yeah.

What Does “Llamedos” Mean?

Here’s the winning team from the Tolbooth the other night.

Llamedos
Llamedos

They were called ‘Llamedos’ and I guessed this was Spanish but didn’t know what the word meant after my first piss-poor attempt to pronounce their team name, they put me straight: “Ya-meh-doss”.

Next time they handed in their answers I asked the bloke what it meant.

“It’s the name of our house in Spain.”

“Yes, but what does the word mean?”

“Oh, it’s just “Sod ’em all”, backwards…”
