As several of you have pointed out, there is an appalling howler in this week’s quiz. The seventh question runs as follows: What’s missing: Spanking the Monkey, Requiem for a Dream, The Damned United, Alien 3? As you may not have solved it, I won’t give you the answer, but Requiem for a Dream should, of course, be replaced by (or “Pi” if you have an inflexible keyboard). Gosh, this sounds like a correction to a mathematics exam rather than a movie trivia quiz. At any rate, the correction probably constitutes a clue in itself.

As compensation, I offer you a pop trivia question. There is no generous cash prize — but a round of applause — for anyone who gets the correct answer. Annoyingly, despite being quite obscure, the solution does appear to be available via Google. So, I am trusting you not to use that service (or any similar search engine).

What connects the following albums: World Shut Your Mouth by Julian Cope, Almost Blue by Elvis Costello, Houses of the Holy by Led Zeppelin, Born Sandy Devotional by The Triffids and Sheer Heart Attack by Queen?
