Thank you to everyone who entered the quiz you helped raise lots of cash for Oxfam and their really good causes. Just a little effort can make such a big difference on someone else's life. The winner's were Sam, Erol Suzanne, Dunc and James and the booby prize went to Richard!

Sadly, we are slightly off my target of wanting to raise £100 for Oxfam so I'm going to bring my badges and my bucket to The Lost Disco next Tuesday!

Also, thanks for your requests, sadly we ran out of time to play them all and some were a little bizarre but I'll try and play a few next week which were missed this week!

Anyway the answers are!

1. What year did the NME first get published? 1952

2. Who won this years' Mercury Music Award? The Arctic Monkeys

3. Johnny Borrell briefly played bass in another famous indie band before
leaving to form Razorlight, which band was it? The Libertines

4. What was the name of The Smiths' first single? Hand in Glove

5. Who sang these lyrics? "Once I had a love and it was divine, Soon found out I was losing my mind, It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind, Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind." Debbie Harry/ Blondie

6. What song are these lyrics from? "How could this be done, By such a
smiling sweetheart Oh and your sweet and pretty face, its such an ugly word for something so beautiful." The Kooks Niave

7. Fill in the gap in this Bob Dylan single title - "It's all over now ..
.." Baby Blue

8. What according to one recent single is the most fun a girl can have
without taking her clothes off? Lying

9. Solve this anagram to find the name of a famous band "Cheaper, smarter incest" The Manic Street Preachers

10. Solve this anagram to find the name of a famous band "Eh Seatbelt" The Beatles

11. Whose town do The Killers currently favour? Sam's town

12. What polka-dot loving girl group told us our kisses are wasted on them? The Pippettes

13. Hoppípolla was the name of a Sigur Ros single, what does this mean
translated from Icelandic into English? Jumping into Puddles (I accepted hopping into puddles as well)

14. How old was Joy Division front-man Ian Curtis when he committed suicide? 23

15. What Britpop band, originally called Seymour, formed in Colchester? Blur

16. According to The Young Knives here comes what? The Rumour Mill
