Ready for Quiz #47?

If you call, I will answer!


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!


Artist of the Week #47
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points…………………Canadian (CanCon!) band, formed in Scarborough, Ontario in 1988.

For the last 3 decades, or ever since their Yellow Tape, the band lineup has included Tyler Stewart (drums), Jim Creegan (bass, sometimes upright), Ed Robertson (guitar and vocals)….






400 points…………………and up until 2009, the band also featured Steven Page (hard to believe yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittt’s been over one week decade since he left the group) 






300 points……………………Though they don’t have any albums on the 1001 list, seeing as it includes Enid / Brian Wilson / Be My Yoko Ono / What a Good Boy / If I Had $1,000,000, their 1992 album, Gordon, really should be!






200 points……………….. Two word band name, as shown below:






100 points………………..The artist is B______________ L______s






Answer: سيدات عاريات

    500. You had me at Scarborough. But that cassette tape cover sealed the deal, I had a couple copies of that tape stolen from me over the years.

    • Who steals a tape, honestly?!
      Nice work on the GTA clue, JP!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha. The worst kind of thief. Actually, probably some girl I had a crush on at some point or other…

  2. Back to 200 and I have no excuses.

  3. 500 but lucky guess.

  4. Ouch. 200 points from the excellent picture clues 🙂

  5. If I had 500 points I would buy you a green dress, but not a real green dress that’s cruel

  6. 400 for me. Sadly, the only band member name I know is the guy that left.

  7. 500, quite probably the best Scarborough band I have seen live.

  8. I think I could find 500 points in the old apartment!

    • yiiiiiiiiiiiitt’s been One Week since your last 500 Deke – and hopefully only One Week away from your next one in a row!

  9. 500! I’ve been on a binge lately. Some of their albums will be making an appearance in the next collection update!

  10. Zack permalink

    300. I’m not a fan.

  11. 500 here. Some fun tunes in that collection.

  12. Thank God for picture clues otherwise I’d have struck out. 200 points

  13. 100 please.

  14. another postcard with chimpanzeeeeeeeeeees
    500 points are addressed to meeeeeeeeeeeee
    every one is
    every one is
    every one is addressed to me
    every one is
    every one is
    oh fuck

    Steven Page does live streaming concerts every Saturday and he played this song – which I’m pretty sure he doesn’t like at all – the other week and pointed out that he got “oh fuck” played on the radio because he said it quietly enough that people didn’t realize that’s what he was saying.

    (Mika got 500 points too)

  15. Harrison permalink

    I’ll take a cool 200 please to achieve 10,000 total points

  16. An abysmal 200 this week, Stephen… I am very, very sorry!

  17. Hmm… I wonder… 500!! I own lots of copies of that yellow thing!
