2021 Artists of the Week (so far):

.

My thanks to all who have participated in the “Artist of the Week” quizzes so far.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified Sonic Youth last week.

The results after 6 weeks (as of Thursday afternoon – results submitted after that time will be added to next week’s spreadsheet):

.

Ready for Quiz #7?

I’m hanging on a moment of truth!

.

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!

Verbalize the Positive

*My personal favourite non-fiction fan base name is “The Distiples” (for devout Michael Stipe / R.E.M. followers).

Though from the world of fiction, John William Weichselbrauniacs might be my preference!
