17. But I won't say what I got wrong, in case it gives any clues.

Lol, I got 20. There's a few great lost Fall songs amongst the Speccie answers.

15! and the fall are probably my fave 'rock band'. i tend to stop listeing after levitate when the original band left tho

Pranet

This covers both of my interests, so I got 20/20.

13/20, I know nothing about The Fall and apparently too much about the Spectrum.

One hundred percent-ah!

Why weren't "Fat Worm Blows A Sparky" and "Everyone's a Wally" options?

Because the first one is clearly a Cardiacs song.

15

The only Spectrum game I know is Horace Goes Skiing

15/20. Not bad considering I only know the names of about 5 Fall songs, and only two of them featured in that list.

20.  I'd be handing my Fall-geek card in if it was any less.

White Lightning is a Spectrum game as well as a Fall song.  A little unfair that I got it wrong.

8/20. I knew Technician Ted was a Speccy game.

11/20 and yeah, that was the only one I was completely confident on.  Technician Ted was like the Dark Souls version of Manic Miner.

17.

i have zero knowledge of the zx spectrum, whatever that is

19. I was caught out by second-guessing myself over a Spectrum game. Should have gone with my gut (of the quantifier).

Oh, sorry, that was a Sonic The Hedhehog Youth Song, wasn't It?. Quite a few of the boys ( possibly not girls) of CaB will be getting the full 20/ 20 for this ' un, I would imagine. I liked the way the option choices were worded.

16/20

I didn't get that
Spoiler alert
Boxoctosis is a Fall song and that Great Britain Ltd, Corridors Of Power, Just Not Fun Baby Fun are Speccy games

20, in about 10 seconds. For most people the equivalent would be a quiz titled Is It a Shape Or Is It a Colour?

" most people" ? I know that Mark E. Smith's death warranted a short item on " News At Ten", but some of the results on this very thread show that The Fall are still very much a cult band. I would have thought that there would have been 20/20s all over the place. I'mactually quite surprised at Norton Canes' lowly result.And I suppose this just goes to show...
