  • Preposterous music trivia info you've somehow accumulated

    I spent last weekend recording a new Beatpack 45 down in Hastings.

    Whilst ensconced in the Ponswood Hit Factory, I learned that arch-Tory homophobe David Van Day from Dollar not only somehow ended up in Bucks Fizz, but that he also went on to set up his own burger van, which became known as Burger Van Day.

    To capitalise on the attention this garnered, he recorded a download-only cover version of Throbbing Gristle's Hamburger Lady.
    Pub quiz questions of the future will have aging music nerds scratching their heads as to what the link between The land of Make Belief and Geneses P Orridge could possibly be.
    You heard it here first.

    Anyone else learned anything stupendously odd or preposterous of late?

    Oh, there was also a lengthy Una Stubbs sidetrack that I won't go into here for fear that you'd never be able to see Worzel Gummidge in the same light again.
    To infinity - and beyond!

          Apparently the now-elderly Una Stubbs' family won't let her near a computer if they can help it, in case she Googles her own name and spots aforesaid spurious tales of a scatological nature!!

                      * Do you know we are being led to slaughter by placid admirals and that fat slow generals are getting obscene on young blood?

                        Joe Zawinul started out playing accordion for a Hitler Youth Band.
                        Sivuca, Hermeto Pascoal and Hermeto´s brother started out as an all-albino accordion trio.
                        Jimmy Shand recorded more music than the Beatles and Elvis put together.

                        That´s it. I´m all out of accordion trivia

                            Hardly trivia. Or pertinent.

                              The question did not mention that it had to do with music, if that is wat you mean by "pertinent". He asked if we learned anything stupendously odd or preposterous.....but it does have to do with music, as it turns out. It was a "cerebral joke" and cryptic, it's just that you don;t know where the questions come from so you haven;t seen the connection.
                              Maybe some Plussers do recognise it (?)
