Wednesday Quiz Action In The Great City of Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Alex Party (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Lisbon (pic round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Joker:

This is one of the great Europop-rave crossover tracks, from the end of the golden age 1991-96

By ’95, rave and dance were mainstream. The subculture element was on the wane and the singles chart was full of copyists.

I don’t know who the people were behind Alex Party but the vibe on the record has enough classic rave in it to earn that slice of integrity which started to go missing in the pop scene from 1997 onwards.

Incidentally Cunto Cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Yo!

Wednesday Quiz Wonder

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: City of God (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: KT Tunstall (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

It’s KT Tunstall fae Scotland doing a song about being on the other side of the world.

Would the UK win Eurovision if they entered ‘proper’ artists like Tunstall?

Maybe not. Who knows. We tried Engelbert Humperdinck but he was so old-skool and old-hat that he could only come second-last.

I know most of you don’t care, but I’m still excited by this year’s Eurovision, even though it’s over for another year.

I am jealous of the Quiz Vanjie team who were in Lisbon for the week. Brilliant.

The one I like never wins, this year I liked France but they finished 13th. Shame. Quality song.

Anyway, I’m rambling and its nearly time for pop master, so let me finish with my favourite missing cat poster from last year…

A cat named Alan
“I ran away because you named me Alan”

 

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Wednesday Night Quizzes in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Blur (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Geena Davis (pic round)

Heyyy. Wednesdays are sexy like a salmon sandwich, but on really good bread.

The Joker is  a smooth midweek lounge lizard snake pit. The Monkey on Drummond Street is a filthy hive of fuck knows what.

There’s something for everyone.

Here’s the music round cheat for the 7pm quiz at the Joker. It’s Blur being a bit awkward. I like the song though.

 

Meanwhile, do you doodle on your jackpot sheet? It makes it more difficult to read the answers, but it can be visually stimulating.
