Music Quiz: Aphoristic Album Reviews (part 1)

Congratulations to Tony, who scored 56 out of 69 in last week’s 1001 albums book quiz, and shout-outs to Murphy’s Law and Rich who both scored 54.

This week’s quiz is a little different from previous quizzes, in that I made it myself. It covers half of the artists that I’ve featured to date on this blog. I’ve given you some clues:
i) Some hints about the artist’s style and gender
ii) The year they recorded their first album
iii) My favourite song from the act (sometimes this is an obscure album track or b-side and not very helpful)
iv) The answers are presented in alphabetical order. This quiz covers 50 artists – the last one has a surname starting with P.

I’m obviously ineligible to enter this week, but my wife tried it and scored 14/50. I feel like there are a few very obscure entries in there, so I’ll be impressed if anyone gets into the high 40s. I apologise in advance for any typos or ambiguous questions.

  1. 35/50
    The only ones I really kicked myself for missing were Lindsay Buckingham and Buffalo Springfield. “Expecting to Fly” – I couldn’t get past Learning to Fly (Pink Floyd) and Given to Fly (Pearl Jam), neither of which fit in that place in the alphabet.

  2. Stunk that one up with a 32 and hung my head in shame when I saw the answers. Still it’s thanks to your enthusiastic reviews of “Australian/New Zealand pop-rock band, debut album 1986” that I’m currently enjoying their initial four albums so ta for that
