The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 5/19

“Tempus fugit” Indeed it does, as here we are once more with Trivia Tuesday for May 19th!  Brought to us each and every Tuesday by our timely friends at Omnivore Recordings! Your best option for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! And, before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who weighed in on last weeks question, which was: We asked several questions about The Beatles original manager Brian Epstein. Weighing in first with all the facts was Owen! Way to go Owen, as usual! But, right on his heels was our old friend and long time SMS supporter,  Steve Winogradsky! Yeah Yeah Yeah! Steven!

But now! It’s time for this weeks new Trivia Quiz: This week our question is a lyrical one, and here you go:According to this classic song,  Who is “Late of Pablo Fanques Fair”? NEXT: When and Where wil Mr. K perform his fete? And lastly what will The Henderson’s be doing while Mr. K performs his fete? And, of course what is the name of the song and what classic album features this great track?

In summary here’s what we need:

1) WHO is “late of Pablo Fanques Fair”?

2) WHEN and Where will Mr. K perform?

3) WHAT will The Henderson’s be doing while Mr. K performs?

  1. These questions wake up in me an extremely VIVID snapshot of my life. I’m 19 yrs old & visiting my friend Rick Miller. I’m invited to his parents home and into Rick’s room we go and Rick has some crazy shit I admit I’ve NEVER SEEN BEFORE! Now I grew up sparsely when it came to “Hi-Fi” equipment but Rick (in 1967) was about to BLOW MY MIND AWAY!! I was witness to two huge speaker cabinets (MASSIVE) in comparason to anything I’ve seen before. He hsd huge boxes which he ecplained to me wete Recievers, Preamps & a futeristic Turn Table & on it placed a Beatle slbum I had Znever heard before!! “Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. I was transported out of my here to for existential limits. The world views I clung to were DESOLVING..Iwas now an Open Book!
    SO I KNOW THIS SONG. SGT. PEPPER’S Lonely Hearts Club Band. The cover ALONE blew my mind ( NO BODY HAS DONE THIS)!!! Sooo…”Being For The Benifit Of Mr. Kite” ( REMEMBER AT THIS TIME I HAD NO IDEA WHAT I WAS LISTENING TO!). The Hendersons are Late of Pablo Fanques Fair. Mr. K performs HIS feat on Saturday at BISHOPSGATE. The HENDERSONS will be dancing and singing as Mr. K flys through the ring.
    I will Neverforget thus…it RECONFIGURED MY MIND FOREVER!
