Pop/Rock Groups Quiz

Postby Polly » Fri Jun 12, 2009 6:35 pm

Hi - I know Im not a regular posted but I need help!! My daughter is fundraising for her guide pack and brought me in a quiz which, being not too bright I cannot finish. :? I wonder if anyone out there can help - the clues are supposed to relate to a pop/rock band/singer (eg bird of prey with colic = hawkwind / deparate trouble = dire straits etc) - the ones I cannot get are:

part time coppers
youth association at whipsnade
contagious babies going
gospel writers bourbon

so far its beat 2 engineers / school office staff /some teachers and a retired granny!

Any help would be most gratefully appreciated

thanks

I've just had a thought - but luckily, I was sitting down at the time!

gospel writers bourbon. Could it be Matthew Southern Comfort?

How about Fairground Attraction Chris? Pity it's not one of the ones Polly needs... :?

YAzoo sounds right though
