From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: Silent Alarm

Infectious is probably the best word to describe this breathtaking debut; the intensely lively tracks such as 'Banquet', 'Helicopter' and 'Luno' consummately balance with the emotive beauty of 'This Modern Love', 'Blue Light' and 'So Here We Are'. It is truly one of the most astonishingly, brilliant albums in modern music

8. Which Bloc Party song features these lyrics? 'We've got crosses on our eyes, been walking into the walls again.'

From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: Like Eating Glass

Bloc Party have a spectacular skill in fusing the truly unique and forceful instrumental side of their music with lyrics tinged with despair. This track is no exception; regardless of your own personal interpretation, it is both raw and painful and manages to be achingly beautiful at the same time.

9. Which country does Bloc Party hail from?

From Quiz God Bless Bloc Party

Answer: United Kingdom

Essex, England to be exact.

10. The video of which Bloc Party track features the four band members as animated characters embarking on an adventure which at one point involves them being shot out of a handgun?

From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: Pioneers

This vivid and artistic video, featuring the wacky and perilous adventures of the band as cartoon pioneers, was produced by Tim Phillips and completed on a shoestring by Mini Vegas, a design agency based in London. It was number one in the NME video charts for a month.

11. Lead singer Kele Okereke had a well-publicised feud in 2005 with which fellow frontman?

From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: Eddie Argos of Art Brut

This verbal conflict began with Argos, insulting Kele and Bloc Party on a well known music website. It came to a head in a minor physical altercation at a club in London in 2005. The other three choices are utterly delightful in every way and would never be involved in any nasty feuds, hehe.

12. Fill in the correct lyric from the song "Price of Gas". "I have been driving a ____________ car. I never hurt anyone."

From Quiz God Bless Bloc Party

Answer: midsize

"Is that a fact."

13. Critics from which music magazine voted Bloc Party's debut as the album of the year, 2005?

From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: NME

The renowned NME have in recent years being accused of creating hype for bands that frankly don't deserve it, but in Bloc Party they recognised a truly refreshing band which was exactly the injection of energy that music required. Some view the band as art rock, others see them as a modern take on post punk, yet they they have in my opinion, created a genre of their own, which is truly different from anything else out there. That's a feat not many others can achieve.

14. Which song begins with the lyric "North to South"?

From Quiz God Bless Bloc Party

Answer: Helicopter

"Helicopter" appears in the soundtracks to "FIFA 06", "Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure", "Project Gotham Racing 3" and "Burnout Revenge".

15. 'Wake up dreamer it's happening without you' are the opening lyrics to which Bloc Party song?

From Quiz Bloc Party, Trivia and Lyrics

Answer: Plans

This song once again demonstrates Kele's ability to write truly powerful and poetic lyrics; he speaks to those who are lost, with life passing them by, pleading 'Stop being so laissez-faire (leave things alone/let them pass) We're all scared of the future.' It is once again a truly effectual song, perhaps tinged with cynicism, you either get lost in progress or become adrift from it, a typically catch 22 dilemma faced by those living in the modern world. Yet, Bloc Party are nothing if not honest about life in the 21st century.

16. "Banquet" appears on both the album "Silent Alarm" and the EP simply entitled "Bloc Party". Which other song also appears on both "Silent Alarm" and "Bloc Party"?

From Quiz God Bless Bloc Party

Answer: She's Hearing Voices

"She's Hearing Voices" is one of Bloc Party's first songs and also was released as a single.
