The Genesis Trivia Quiz

  • Lindisfarne a saw several times in the early 80s, a great live band . Saw them again at a festival a couple of years back . Still really really good.

    Blood On The Rooftops lyrics quote a chorus line from Lindisfarne's Fog On The Tyne: "The fog on the Tyne is all mine all mine", with fog replaced by grime.

  • I know this but will leave it to others.


    My Sinatra link was Charlie Drake - You Never Know (Collins/Phillips/Gabriel) --> Bobby Darren - Splish Splash --> Sinatra - Mack The Knife.

    I have to say I have never heard of that song You Never Know which prompted me to look it up. Quite a strange song but what a lineup!

  • Which two musicians of well-known bands did recordings with Genesis independently in 1970 when the band was without a label?

  • Who else is depicted here, by the way? I know that's John Betjeman in the teapot, and Viv Stanshall and Dame Edna of course

    John Arlot the cricket commentator. Peter Hammil in the flat cap. Tony Stratton Smith is the Mad Hatter.Monty Python's foot about to stamp on Clifford T. Ward dressed as Alice

  • Dame Edna Everage as the Cheshire Cat - I wasn't aware Barry Humphries even made any records - I thought it was all stage shows. The whole point of an impersonation is you have to see it, I would have thought.


    (After a Google search)...Well I was right... he did release albums as Dame Edna on Charisma. By the way, as an Australian, I am not a fan of his at all.

    I have this set . The previous question reminded me of it. A celebration of Charisma Records with a great deal of ( obviously not exclusively) distinctly British acts. A lot of quirky stuff . There is one song each from SH, PG, TB and MR. The Genesis contribution here is Happy The Man. There were a lot of spoken word and comedy records in the seventies pre video age including John Arlot talking about cricket!! It was the one and only way to hear and keep anything however odd a recording may be. I heard Monty Python on record before seeing it on the tele. By the way the horse in the background is Tony Stratton Smith's race horse Stats Legacy.

  • Which two musicians of well-known bands did recordings with Genesis independently in 1970 when the band was without a label?. .

    Just don't know. Could play 20 questions bit still don't think I could get it. I know they associated with Mott The Hopple and Lindisfarne. Anywhere near..?

  • I think Cat Stevens was one, Peter Gabriel played flute for him.
