Thursday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Serbia (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: The Commodores (music round)

Come to the quiz. You will find it mildly exhilarating at points. Also, satisfying and nice.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Newsroom and it is everyone’s favourite band with Lionel Richie in it: The Commodores.

Although, of course, Lionel Richie had already left the band by this point to become the world’s greatest singer.

This is the first Commodores song I ever remember hearing. It was the mid-80s and I wasn’t a fan of what was branded “soul” at that time but I liked this straight away. It’s got plenty.

It’s about dead pop stars. Fun fact: original keyboard player Milan Williams is now dead too. What goes around comes around.

So come to the quiz. See you later x

Thursday – Biggest Jackpot for Ages

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: Iggy Pop (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round)

Tonight’s quiz at The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot I’ve had for a while. £250.

It’s a quarter of a grand!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

The drum machine sound is awesome. The whole thing is so French. I think this is a sign that France are going to win the world cup.

How the hell is me posting a video of a 40-year old synth piece a “sign”? I don’t know either but it makes as much sense as some of the other cleromancy that goes on. One immediately thinks of Paul the Octopus in 2010, David Hasselhoff’s dogs at the last world cup and now Bill Bailey has his ducks of destiny…

What a load of shite.

What’s NOT a load of shite is that you can win a big bucket of money tonight. Come to the quiz!

Thursday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Beck (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Burning Man (pic round)

Tonight’s Thursday pub quiz action in the great town of Edinburgh offer you the sanctity of victory.

Not at all costs. We must remember that we are members of a civilization and at the moment our inner dragon commands murder, we must use our top-brains to resist such base urge.

Especially just to win a pub quiz. Jeez. Imagine being sent down for life imprisonment because you killed someone who was doing better than you at the pub quiz.

THINK!

IT’S NOT WORTH IT

Meanwhile, here is the cheat answer for the music round at Here’s their song that’s in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

It’s hoary old campaigner Beck, but back in the day when he was good. Bands and singers often go like that, you know: ace when young and shite later.

Not quizmasters – we get better as we get older.

I’ve posted some poor pop videos recently but this one’s great. All cut up and senseless. Nice.

See you at the quiz. Did you notice the jackpots tonight? £90 and £150. That’s decent.

Thursday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Dead Cities (musc round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Netherlands (pic round)

Thursday is all about a nice pint and the cave vibe (Argyle).

Thursday is all about the uptown swagger and a possible pagger (Newsroom).

Thursday is all about cool friendly local inclusion. No judgement. (Argyle).

Thursday is all about tanning cocktails until Armageddon bears down (Newsroom).

You know – different vibes.

But, in the famous and well-known words of Scotland’s very own Marti Pellow, “THURSDAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT”.

Former heart-throb

Meanwhile, here is the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Argyle.

It’s The Exploited. The story goes that the Edinburgh punks made this appearance on Top The The Pops and subsequently the singer (Wattie) had his dole docked when he went to sign on the next week as his Dole Officer had watched the show and now recognized him as a pop star.

It’s a great story but searching online for verification has proved fruitless over the last ten minutes or so. Does anyone know if it’s true or false?

Whatever you do, don’t miss the quiz tonight. All non-attenders could potentially be raptured by Satan.

Make Your Thursday Night A Quiz Triumph

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Crystal Palace (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Simply Red (music round)

Thursday offers you the chance for sexy underground vibe in Marchmont or upfront street cocktail action at the Newsy. Both are terrific beyond comprehension.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer.

Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s Newsroom music round.

It’s Simply Red who used to dominate the UK Singles Chart like Google dominate search. This was one of their most memorable hits:

In fact, it was their first hit and it made Mick Hucknall a star and ginger-haired sex-symbol.

It’s a cover version. The original is American and has a hefty, sleazy-funk edge. Is it better? That’s up to you.

Thursday Jackin’ – Jackin’ The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Japan (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Zedd (music round)

Thursday has dawned like a fat boy at a buffet.

Don’t get beat to the cheeses. Don’t let him grab all the ham. Snatch a sausage roll from under his sniffy fatty snout right now, before they all get grabbed. Run!

That was a trifle fattist. Whoa! don’t mention trifle.

Anyway, here is the cheat clip from tonight’s’ Newsroom music round. It sounds like modern pop music in such a pre-fabricated way that it might well have been written by an algorithm.

Algorithms might one day be sophisticated enough to emulate Jethro Tull but the Tull will have always been the ones to do it first.

Fuck the robots.

Thursday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Kraze (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Mister Bump (pic round)

Thursday is happening. Whether you like it or not, Thursday is happening.

To make sure it’s happening right, you need to leave the house. This is an essential step. Then you must take more steps until you reach the pub. Once you get there, it’ll be great.

Meanwhile, here’s a clip from tonight’s music round at the Aryle. I remember this from when it was out, which is a LONG time ago. Quality tune, Chicago house dance music from the 80s (although I think the bloke who did Kraze was from New York). Terrific.

This is the stuff quizmasters used to dance to before they became quizmasters.

One day, the house sound will return and all your pissy modern ‘dance’ music will be eliminated. Last Sunday we had the return of dead Christ. Next Sunday we may see the return of true house.

You never know.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org

Thursday Makes Monsters Out of Moles

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Suede (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Alanis Morissette (pic round)

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.

Anyway, you’ll hear approximately twenty seconds of the glory of Suede tonight. Maybe I should fill up my playlists with some of their other terrific works.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org
