Review by Paul Monkhouse for MPM
It’s hard to believe that the rambunctious rockers debut is thirty-one years old now but The Quireboys ‘A Little of What You Fancy’ still stands as not only a great first album but one of the biggest highpoints of that era.
In celebration of the anniversary the band have gone into the studio to re-record it, adding the modern sheen and verve that this line-up has but losing none of the untamed rough house charm of the original.
Lead single ‘7 O’Clock’ has long been a fan favourite and this new version reiterates just what a good time party The Quireboys bring, its irresistible and infectious charm propelled by an unmistakable love of rock ‘n’ roll.
Fuelled by the rolling quicksilver keys of Keith Weir, the classy twin guitar boogie of Guy Griffin and Paul Guerin and topped by the bourbon and coke soaked vocals of Spike, this hits the spot from the very first note to the very last. Truly authentic and utterly thrilling, it doesn’t get much better than this.
