  • The Quireboys
    commercial appeal underpinning Hey You and 7 O Clock proved the Quireboys were true contenders Both hit singles remain staples of the band s 2013 show and Spike added 7 O Clock was one of the first songs that we Spike and Guy Bailey ever wrote We d played the song at the Reading festival at the Marquee all over the place and every time without a chorus But the line 7 O Clock has always been there from start to finish The same can be said for Spike And if other Quireboys have come and gone then the enduring frontman with his trademark bandana and shot of JD has remained the one constant during the last 28 years If London was the platform required to showcase Spike s star quality then the Geordie boy come good never forgot his North East roots The Newcastle United die hard penned a new take on Tyneside ironically named Dirty Town on the band s 2008 record Homewreckers and Heartbreakers and yet it was the era defining Mayfair which helped launch The Quireboys in the pubs and clubs across the UK Mayfair will always be special to me added Spike It was the first rock club I went to in Newcastle as a 13 year old kid dreaming of being a star I saw my first gig there UFO I can still remember it like it was yesterday It s such a shame it s been replaced by a multiplex cinema and a load of trendy bars I ve sung that song all over the world and it always gets the crowd going But in Newcastle they go mental I love where I m from and my roots Dirty Town is all about the Toon and it namechecks places like the Quayside which have become part of the social culture up there It picks up from where Mayfair left off I suppose In tandem with Blyth born guitarist Paul Geurin a prime mover in the Quireboys for the past decade Spike has continued to support the North East The pair penned a charity tune for FA Cup giant killers Blyth Spartans in 2009 and supported The Robbie Elliott Foundation in 2012 fronted by former Newcastle United defender Robbie Elliott with the iconic Biking For Bobby a song blasted out for the first time in front of 52 000 Magpies fans at St James s Park At the same time the Quireboys have emerged as an acoustic act par excellence Halfpenny Dancer released in 2009 featured a slew of stripped down and reworked classics plus favourite covers The band toured the UK and Europe playing unplugged and complemented by a pedal steel sound perfect for their unique brand of British blues meets raw Americana In 2012 an expectant Download Festival crowd was treated to both sides of a band riding the crest of a creative wave with a full electric set followed by an acoustic show 24 hours later But with 2013 s Beautiful

    to give everyone a fair chance and a fair listen but frankly very little out there constitutes rock n roll in a genuine in the bones committed sense So when The Quireboys release a new studio album my ears are pricked and ready It s been a few years since Homewreckers And Heartbreakers but with a new label and management the Boys are back with if anything a more balanced album And with Chris Tsangarides producing you can rest assured that it sounds just right not too glossy but classy all the same Kicking off with Too Much Of A Good Thing quite possibly vocalist Spike s theme tune the riff is part Stones part Young brothers Yes Spike s voice has a lived in quality now and there s a fine line between debauchery and raggedness but this IS rock n roll If The Stones had followed up Doom And Gloom with this song people would be rightfully shouting it s praises Chain Smokin has another fine snaking sleazy tempo though the lyric is simple at best Then again if you re bopping around the lounge in yer slippers just me then does this matter too much Talk Of The Town breezes along like an easy drive on a summer s day with the windows down Keith Weir s keyboards give a melancholy edge to the middle eight There was a time when you d hear these types of songs on the radio Ho hum I can hope Mother Mary for my tastes should close the album or at least side one A sumptuous ballad this is where Spike s voice is best suited Tinged with regret it could have been written by Ian Hunter and sung by Rod in his Python Lee days Yep it s that good King Of Fools is the kind of song that The Quireboys make sound simple Chuck Berry double stops with bar room keys that shout out party This is not easy to pull off but they still have the knack of sounding like it s done in one take with one eye on opening time Homewreckers And Heartbreakers packs a punch One of their strongest songs this should sound great live Slide guitars and keyboards create an insistent groove while Spike testifies over it all as only he can Diamonds And Dirty Stones does indeed sound somewhat Stonesy from the times when Mick and Co got funky Praise must be given here to stand in drummer Simon Hansen for providing rhythms to hang this all on Sterling work as rock and funk aren t always good bedfellows the swing of the drums and percussion allows room for the riffs to hang in mid air before whipping back down Beautiful Curse starts with cow bell and a swirl of organ introducing what is likely to be an audience sing along very soon This ain t the end of the world but I sure can see it from here A chiming guitar melody married to an infectious chorus Again the Boys tip a hat to their influences without losing sight of their own personality Don t Fight It brings a world weary lighters in the air ballad to the mix Spike shows a deft touch here it could easily be heavy handed but it s tender and restrained Yes The Quireboys have been writing similar songs for some decades now but that only makes it harder to produce something this special For Crying Out Loud takes us back to the party at full speed Mucho Berryisms and like the good man himself this is infectious good time rock n roll Music to put a smile on your face If it ain t broke Twenty Seven Years slows the pace expressing relief at avoiding the fates of Brian Jones Janis Joplin et al Got the blues pounding through my head but I m never alone A reflective moment I Died Laughing ends the album with a mid paced summery feel Understated it shows that The Quireboys are using a broader palette than before without compromising their approach This far into their career it s fair to say that you either love this music or you don t It s obvious to anyone with ears that The Quireboys are still in love with rock n roll and on this form few do it better http louderthanwar com the quireboys beautiful curse album review Krusher s Review Beautiful Curse Thursday 27 June 2013 Beautiful Curse Album Review Krusher Joule Having heard the album and played selected tracks to the HRH Ibiza Road Trip rock animals I can honestly put my hand on my naughty bits and say this is one of the finest Quireboys albums I ve heard Tip of the hat to Mr Tsangerides production skills and I raise my glass high and say well done you rock n roll reprobates look forward to seeing you on tour later this year X Fan Review Beautiful Curse Tuesday 18 June 2013 can I just say I ve been listening to this on repeat all day it honestly is a phenomenal piece of workmanship I know 7 years its been a long time comin but it really has been worth the wait As you all know I m a huge fan and love everything the band has released Homewreckers and Heartbreakers This Is Rock and Roll Well Oiled Bitter Sweet and Twisted the lot but this takes me to A Bit Of What You Fancy and believe me when I say this belongs up there alongside the debut classic if indeed it doesn t surpass it any true Quireboys fan will love this best order 2 copies because you re sure to burn one out its that good Mark Wylie Fan Review Saxon and The Quireboys Newcastle O2 Monday 22 April 2013 REVIEW SAXON THE QUIREBOYS Posted by simon On April 21
