The SMS Trivia Question of the Week… 2 / 14 ( Valentine’s Day)

Once again we welcome you to the all new SMS Trivia Question for Tuesday February 14th! Brought to us each week by all the very cool folks at Omnivore Recordings!  Your perfect stop for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But, before we post this week’s quiz, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was all about the great Donovan Leitch and his music! Including his “Finger picking” ! First in with all the right answers was the always brilliant and most frequently first,Mr. Steve Winogradsky!  Following Steve, only 30 seconds later another resident super genius Mr. John Zambetti nailed the quiz! Taking the third position was the only SMS Super Genius we’ve known since High School!  Mr. Bill Goshay! Wrapping things up for the week is a relatively new member of our regular squad of SMS Super Geniuses Mr. Thomas Slocum! Big SMS Thanx and congrats to one and all!

But now, it’s time for the brand new Trivia Question for Tuesday February 14th.  This weeks question is a “Anagram” and a wee bit more!

Here’s your Anagram:  Bludgeon Fair Spliff ! There you have it! , naturally we need you to unscramble it and tell us who it is, as well as the titles to at least THREE of their hits ? Three members of this group will go on to form 3 more groups from the 60’s! All of them hugely popular and successful! We’ll need the names of these bands as well ?

Lastly, for “SMS Super Genius” status: Give us the name of the band member who always turned his back to the camera when being photographed ?

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Who does “Bludgeon Fair Spliff” unscramble to become ?

2) Give us the titles to at least 3 of their hits ?

3) Thee members of this band will go on to form their own very popular and successful bands, give us the names of these 3 band members ?

4) Give us the names of their three bands ?

5) Give us the name of the one band member who always turned his back to the camera when being photographed ?
