The Music Quiz

8 is doing my head in.....

Ha ha, probably the most obscure one in it. It was not released as a single.

You wouldn’t know it if you didn’t have or haven’t heard the album, but if you did have it, you’ll definitely know it.

One I put in though, with yourself and 1 or 2 others in mind.

1971 release. Big BIG band of it’s day, enduring & still touring today.

  1. The Pushbike Song, the Groop, no idea of the album

#1623
19. The Pushbike Song, the Groop, no idea of the album

Song correct…

Want to take another crack at the Band?


#1624

I rekon ive got it somewhere. Most likely in my vinyl collection I’m thinking.

I could have sworn it was the Groop. I’ve cheated and looked it up, but I had completely forgotten that band and would not have got it in a million years


#1626

Pushbike Song was by the Mixtures.
Album? We had it on Pop Goes Australia when I was a kid, although I don’t think that’s the required answer here.

  1. Show Me the Way to StLouis - Easybeats

13 & 14 are both Aussies, one an early rock Icon, and the other, a band that was one of our first contributors to the Prog scene.

I’m a little surprised they’re still untouched. Maybe this threads not getting the normal traffic due to holidays?

And 17. Is from an Iconic American Band with songs and records that span & seem to be picked up by every generation.

No 2 is also an Aus band, that quickly formed a cult following on the back of embracing & then making their own a new emerging music style, but quickly burnt out.

Reformed 20 years on in the 90’s, and still now get out & about a bit.

20, Also Aussie. From one of our first international bands.

  1. English rock band. A lesser known track, 2nd after an International hit single at track 1 on the Album. Released in’77.

  1. Been Down So Long (that it looks like up to me) - The Doors, LA Woman.
    Didn’t see this quiz sooner as l have been in a small village without internet access for the last 4 days.
    The song borrows its title from the novel written by Richard Farina. He is a little known unground figure worth exploring for all sorts of reasons, not the least being his song-writing ability. A friend and contemporary of Dylan, he was married to Mimi Baez, Joan’s sister. Check out Ian Mathews versions of his songs Reno, Nevada, and Morgan The Pirate or John Kay;s version of The Bold Marauder. He died in a motorcycle accident in 1963. The novel is an underground classic, as good as anything Kerouac ever did. A major talent lost.

Changed 16 to the hit mentioned off the Album. That one was a long shot.

Changed 14 to the opening verse. Was hard to find lyrics for that one, turns out the 1 source I could find, was a bit wrong after finding a clearer version of it to check against. Also, Melbourne band.

No 2 was/is a Sydney band.

Added an extra line on it.

I’m useless at answering questions. I can put together a quiz though.

Edit: Did I mention they were English

Righto, one last clue for Numbers 8. & 14.

Both bands played at Sunbury,. The Aussie band (14) in every one of them, the other, (8) only in 75.

And No 2, well. the fans of these guys I’ve seen on here don’t seem to be currently blitzing so… answer
