The Quireboys – Town & Country Club 12/03/1990 [zip file]
The Quireboys (or as they were known in the US, The London Quireboys) seemed to take the UK by storm as a hard-working, grass roots, good ol’ boy, hell-raising drinking band. Their major label debut A Bit of What You Fancy came out in 1990 and boasted a non pretentious, raw and gritty sound that reflected the influence of bands like The Rolling Stones, The Faces and classic Aerosmith. In the UK, the band was packing theaters and turning heads while in the US, they barely made more than a splash which is really a shame. Here in the US, the band a couple of minor hits (thanks to MTV) with their singles 7 0’Clock and I Don’t Love You Any More.
This show has the band playing on their home turf, the Town and Country Club in London to a capacity crowd. The raw energy of the band comes through as they tear through songs from their debut album as well as some roof raising covers such as The Rolling Stone’s Heartbreaker and the old time traditional song made famous by The Allman Brothers, Hoochie Coochie Man. This is a show not to be skipped. Enjoy!
