Ready for Quiz #9

Number 9, Number 9!

.

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

.

400 points……………….In 1993, when this author was learning to play the acoustic ballad, Two Steps Behind, he thought that guitarists Phil Collen/Vivian Campbell must have practiced the song for months (to be able to play the dreaded barred F#m chord in the chorus)!

  1. Found that tough – 300

    • And they had a couple albums in that 92-97 window for me!

      • Might have to give them a second try. They’re in that “so popular in my part of the world I have to run away” category.

      • Understandable – I think long-time fans of the group actually shy away from their 92-97 output as they started to emphasize the ballads during that period

  2. I only got 500 because my friends were fans, otherwise I would be high and dry…

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    I’m with Aphoristical. 300. The album titles were a give away for me. I was lost on the first two clues.

    • On my facebook this morning – the first 4 participants were 300s, I’d say you’re in good company JP!

  4. 400. Not from any significant acquaintance with the heavy gentlemen in question (though i rather like their album cover designs), but because I’ve been living with the bloomin’ source book for 12 years. Browse something enough and bits of data clearly stick.

    • Originally, I hadn’t put the guitarists names in the clue – I’m now quite pleased I did, to reward those with sticking bits/bytes of data!

  5. 200. Their deplorable attitude to grammar is only one of many reasons they have received a lifetime ban in this house.

    • Quite right too – standards must be upheld!

      • Although obviously it’s not a standard that excludes Wooden Shjips. Covfefe!

    • Considering they’ve been banished (and has there been a more reasonable justification for banishment than recklessness with grammar?), 200’s a fine score!

  6. My 500 score has given me considerable Euphoria.

  7. 300 points

  8. 350.

    Ok… 300. But I was 90% sure about the 400.

  9. 500. My favorite band.

  10. 500 for me too, I’m a big fan of that LP they did about food poisoning, Listeria.

  11. Heh heh heh 🙂 You know we got 500 over here!

  12. Rise up! gather round
    Rock this place to the ground
    Burn it up let’s go for broke
    Watch the night go up in smoke
    and while were at it…
    I’ll take 500 and thats no joke!

    • Exemplary work Deke – I was thinking, this week, if Deke doesn’t get 500, it would be the fault of the clues!

      • No way Geoff it would be the fault of Deke sleeping at the wheel…
        Next weeks quiz will probably be a doozie now haha

      • Haha – for my music blogger friends, I think quiz #10 will be tough. For my facebook friends (who unlike me, do a good job of listening to music released after the year 2000), I think they’ll have a strong showing!

      • OH OH…

  13. An easy 500. We used to rewind that tape over and over and laugh at that ‘Gunter glieben glauten globen’ part. Ah, childhood.

    • Well played Aaron – I can remember many a tune that necessitated cassette rewinding!

      • It’s true. I remember rewinding just that part though. It’s a wonder we didn’t wear out the tape!

  14. 500! I believe that is Mutt Lange in that opening too.

  15. 200. I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to them.

    • D – I remember wanting to learn Two Steps Behind (and Morrissey’s we hate it when our friends become successful) and you showed me the bar chords!

  16. Zack permalink

    500. I’m back in the game!

  17. 400 this week, Geoff… I’m pretty pleased with that.

  18. 300 only, this week.

  19. Got it at 300 — not the easiest band to guess, but I like a challenge! 🙂
    Milo.

  20. 300 for me and 300 for Mika and we’re both irritated with ourselves

    • What’s that blue rodeo tune, and if we’re irritated, then we are irritated together?!

      • Pretty sure by the end of this year, we’ll have lost together.

        (except she’ll outdo me… oh well, I tried)

  21. 500 somewhere I heard a whole conversation on where “Gunter glieben glauten globen” originated from
