Can't recall doing so well on popmaster

36 in part one - only missed out on the Alexander O'Neal answer

33 in part two - Ace of Base hit Don't Turn Around eluded me & not a hope of getting the group Roman Holiday from 1983

I suspect a friend in Leeds may have got maximum points in at least one of the quizzes. I find out tomorrow on our journey to Birmingham


good quiz yesterday and the 1st time in yonks I got a guess the year correct with 1974 for the devil gate drive question , the norm for me is "one year out " :cup

Very Floyd-ish

"We're raised in a town
Where they jump on your back and sing
Leave an imprint on your shoulder blades
Wanna walk away
We're not all the same in this town
We're raised in a town
Where they jump on your back like children
And they leave you none
They will..."

Underrated singer/songwriter

Tiger Lily was her debut album after her split from the 10'000 Maniacs, lovely album as was her 2014 self-titled album which we have discussed previously during one of our album of the year polls

Great Curtis choices, Leon. I'm currently reading 'Travelling Soul', a biography of the great man written by his son. He's resisted the temptation to sugar-coat the story, so you get a balanced look at a man who was both genius and a tempestuous control freak. Recommended reading

Have been playing five of Mayfield's albums box-set over the last couple of weeks.
I'll check out his son's biography :tup:

Well I've had a listen to both the Midlake albums, Courage of Others once and Van Occupanther a couple of times - Van Occupanther the early winner for me, I like albums that play as a whole piece rather than a collection of individual songs - set me in mind of Roger Waters Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking - which is a great thing IMHO (a definite possible for the album chart next season!)

Courage needs more than two listens NW :) as I said previously Van Occupanther is a much more immediate accessible album

Good to have you on board the Midlake ship :tup:

'Amused To Death' is my favourite Roger Waters album. Mrs 64 is also a fan too
