Subject: Group(ie) Quiz
From: Nigel Parsons
Date: 18 Oct 16 - 10:25 AM

The connection this time should be obvious from the title.
As before, please Keep Answers Out Of The Thread (PM me if necessary) The thread may be used for claiming scores.
Some liberties may have been taken with spelling/pronunciation!

1 Which song (sung by Bernard Cribbins) was apparently about moving a piano?
2 Which relatives of the swift (or swallow) build their roost on domestic dwellings?
3 What forms are necessary for some Eastern theatre forms, and for silhouettes?
4 Which agriculturalist perfected a horse-drawn seed drill in 1701 ?
5 Between 1968 & 1988, what form was used to claim Unemployment Benefit (now Jobseekers' Allowance)?
6 What are the main ingredients of the food colouring cochineal?
7 What term describes one hundredth of a litre?
8 What, apparently, gather no moss?
9 What term is used for the single reproductive female in a hive or colony of honeybees?
10 What 3 letters might be used to give a Yorkshire greeting?
11 Which is the only premiership football club to have a name starting with 5 consonants?
12 Which character was the main lead in the 3 "Back to the future" films?
13 Which song (recorded by Artie Shaw, the Dominoes, & Donnie & Marie Osmond) includes the lines:
    "In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
      Breathing my name with a sigh?"
14 Which sport's spirit, and various governing bodies, are overseen by the MCC?
15 An 'enclosed rhyme' is one in which the first & last (of four) lines rhyme, as do the second & third. How is this more often described?
16 What is the common (brand name) term used in US for a 'sticking plaster'?
17 In Bingo parlance, what word often describes "Three and Nine, 39"?
18 What term is used for 'second hand evidence', not acceptable in court?
19 What word meaning broken also describes a poker hand with four cards of the same suit which fails to match the fifth card?
20 Finally, after 19 questions, which question means which person?

Given the subject matter, this quiz can remain in the hallowed ranks of the Music section rather than getting relegated to BS.

Cheers
Nigel

Great start from Snuffy, recognising 20 groups.
I assume he knows the football team for #11, as he translated it to the required group name.

Cheers

Senoufou/Eliza also gets in with 20/20

A different answer for #11 though. I was thinking of the team name, not the nickname (one of their two)

Cheers
Nigel

Thanks, Nigel. Good quiz. Think I have 18 so far (admittedly a couple of them googled).

May I be extremely pedantic though?

The seed drill of 1701 had not been 'perfected'. To quote a well known source:

"Seed drills of this and successive types were both expensive and unreliable, as well as fragile. Seed drills would not come into widespread use in Europe until the mid-19th century."

Also, MCC passed control of governing bodies elsewhere in 1993.

Enjoyable nonetheless. Now for the last two...

I was right in the first place. I shouldn't doubt myself.
10cc is one hundredth of a litre.

Roll on Brexit when we can go back to using 'sensible' measures!
