LET’S GET QUIZZICAL #1: THE PICNIC EDITION

Image

I wrote the questions for this quiz for last week’s Daily Ticket at the Electric Picnic, but it ended up not being used – so I thought I’d stick it up here. Everyone likes a good quiz, right? I certainly enjoy Donald Clarke’s Weekly Movie Quiz in The Ticket and I used to love the music quizzes hosted by Phantom FM in The Sugar Club (bring them back!), so I had the idea of hosting a regular quiz here on the blog.

I’ll try to make it a weekly feature (don’t hold me to that) and I’ll cobble together a prize – probably a few CDs – for the winner. By next Wednesday, I’ll put every person (if there’s more than one) who emails theworldwontlisten AT hotmail.co.uk with all ten correct answers into a hat and draw a winner. And remember, if you’re going to Google cheat, that’s between you and your god…

[Disclaimer: These questions are a week out of date and designed for people reading a newsletter on site, but all relate to EP. Future editions will be general music questions.] Go!
