Ready for Quiz #33?

I’m Glad!


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!

  1. If I’d needed the 300 clue, the answer would have been “James T Cheese Gromit Heart”. Luckily, less than one clue was needed. Thank you linespersons, thank you ballkids.

  2. 500 ice creams for crow.

  3. Harrison permalink

    400 please

  4. Well these 500 points are safe as milk 🥛

  5. Zack permalink

    400. I wasn’t sure of the album title (Fishmask Hockey?) But it was enough to get the artist.

  6. 100. I don’t know the name at all.

  7. I knew the name but it wasn’t until the pics came that I figured it out. 400 grams of beef please to go!

  8. jprobichaud permalink

    I wouldn’t have known this at all if weren’t for the visual clue at 300.

  9. Oh the joy of 500 points.

  10. Paul permalink

    300 this week. Got it from the picture clues. Have heard of artist but don’t really know their work

    • I don’t think I’d be able to name too many of his individual tracks – definitely an ‘album’ artist!

  11. 400 for Mika, 300 for me.

  12. 500 magic band points please. I still have the 1969 album.

  13. 400. You earned bonus points for placing Kirk ahead of Picard.

  14. No points for me, but thanks for the quiz Geoff!

  15. 300 this week

  16. 500 I love this guy! There’s a great story of him selling vacuums door to door and saying to people “Ma’am, this really sucks.” Lol. Even if it isn’t fully true, it’s hilarious.

  17. Zoiks! I just recently picked up a couple of his albums (was only familiar with the acclaimed experimental /avant-garde one until then!)… so, thanks to timing, I’ll take the full 500 points, please!
