Sunday Evening Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £180. Cheat: Daft Punk (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Vauxhall (pic round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is daft Punk but doesn’t necessarily sound like Daft Punk. Not least because the bloke doing the singing is Paul Williams, better known as the guy that did the music for Bugsy Malone back in the 1970s

The whole song is over eight minutes long. That’s longer than Bohemian Rhapsody, although it has not attainend the same cultural impact.

There’s no way Ken Bruce would play this at the end of Popmaster. It’s too obscure. Not Steely Dan enough. Not Dire Straits.

Thanks for coming to the quiz tonight if you’re coming and, if you are coming, don’t be the ones that take the hump.

Great jackpots tonight!

Yo!

Sunday Quiz – Top Jackpot Tonight is £120

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Dinosaur Jr. (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Depeche Mode (music round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is a fairly obscure one. Unless you’re my age. And into the kind of stuff I was into then, specifically, at that time. So it’s probably quite a good one to give you as a cheat.

Video is home made:

Next week’s Sunday quiz at the Percy may be slightly affected by the World Cup Final but hopefully not.

Kick off is 4pm so if it runs to 90mins then we’ll be OK. If there’s extra time we might start slightly late.

Tolbooth will be unaffected.

So let’s hope Belgium pump Croatia in normal time.

Speaking of football, did you know that the Hibs season starts today? Outrageous. Some kind of testimonial apparently.

Of course, the real season doesn’t quite start yet. The first tie in the Scottish League Cup is not until Wednesday night.

Come to the quiz.

Yo!
