Its the first Friday of the month, so its time for,.... oh,... not yet

I hope you are all still keeping well, and adjusting to the dramatic changes to our lives over the last week. Yes, I'm talking about the weather. That lovely sunshine has disappeared and its raining again. That's going to make it fun standing in the queue snaking around the car park at the supermarket.

Brushing up for the pub quiz

So here we are, another first Friday in the month, and still we don't know when we will be able to gig again, but we must have patience. I expect when the pubs and venues start reopening, they will first go for more static events where social distancing can be managed, such as pub quizzes. So in that spirit, here is a topical pub quiz for you:

1) What is another name for the Christian martyr, Saint Stephanie, who has been called the Patron Saint of Pandemics.

2) Which city in California, approximately half way between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, is nicknamed Circle City?

3) A panatella cigar is 15cm long and 15mm wide, but what name is given to a cigar which is 14cm long and 17mm wide?

4) Which brand of Mexican bottled beer is popular at the Wheatsheaf?

5) Which Italian band had a hit in the 1990s with this dance record "The rhythm of the night"?

And if you need it, here is a clue....

Fracture reloaded

Not so keen catwalk strutting to 1990s dance records? Well here is something better. I've been rummaging though the archives and found some footage for you of Fracture. This popular Oxford band played several times at Klub Kakofanney between 2014 and 2018, and always turned in a polished performance. This Klub Kakofanney Reloaded is from a grainy night back in 2017. Perhaps you were there that night? I hope you enjoy this taste of their set.

The Mighty Redox recall Vienna

Also, not to be missed is this Klub Kakofanney Unplugged set from Phil and Sue in which they talk about their time in Vienna and give some fascinating insights into the origin of some of the Mighty Redox songs.
