Encore Question of March 3rd, 2001.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight I was in 3rd place in our little mini-group as I just spun my wheels in the Triviaoke round getting at least four of the songs wrong and couldn't reach 20000 points in time for the Encore. I was playing with Bill MADDOG, Paul ZUKEE, and Kimmo KAV.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp....4000/5000...2nd/11 in three way tie with KAV and ZUKEE...MADDOG wins with 4500. OnBeat...10500/14000...1st/11...I win round with KAV and we share lead. JukeBox...16472/20000...1st/11...I win round. Triviaoke...18610/28000...3rd/11...PEZMAN wins round...I get worse in this round every week!
So this question will be about British Island cities and counties seeing Cork is in Ireland and Cornwall is an English county. Can't bookmark anything.
Encore Question:...'Happy Mondays' is the British group credited with inventing the __________ sound.
Well sure I'd have time to look this up but I have just been reading about that this week. Not as spooky as tonight's Jukebox round when we saw the category 'Instrumentals' and I said to Bill, "Walk Don't Run", and that turned out to be in the question! I've told Bill and the rest of the group the answer before I've found it in my book but doublecheck and spread the word to TASIA and her boyfriend at the end of the bar.
On my way out tonight I grabbed a copy of the free entertainment paper 'Eye' and there is was the story I'd read yesterday of the new group "Doves" who are playing in Toronto this weekend. I read the story as I'd seen them on Conan O'Brien because I taped the show to see exToronto boy Mike Myers guest. So second paragraph they get to comparing Doves to Happy Mondays and The Smiths (last week's JukeBox) for depressing music. Long history in music as I remember seeing a movie with Herman's Hermits and Peter Noone was singing about the pleasures of watching 'United' play soccer.
Correct Answer:...2. Manchester
[NTN Extra Fact:...'Black Grape' is another exponent of the sound that exploded during the late 1980's.]
I'm right and stay in 3rd place with 27915 points. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's 18000 point standard. I finish 700th in North America. The bar finishes 11th in North America with a 28933 average. Kav wins and is 19th on the Network Top 20.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank KAV 20739 31109 102 19th on the Network Top 20 board MADDOG 20459 30609 108 ROCKET 18610 27915 700 COSMO 18570 27855 720 ZUKEE 18067 27101 971 METLCA 15179 x 12143 5954 TASIA 13764 x 6882 7707 ISLAND 13691 20537 3158 PEZMAN 12439 18659 3783 RUSKI 11220 x 5610 8131 STAR 6105 x 3053 8982 MGE 3044 x 1522 9492 KPQ 0 x 0 9999
I bought a four CD compilation of Canadian music on my walk here tonight and one of the songs was by Copperpenny "Sitting On A Poor Man's Throne". Bill was the original bass player for that band.
