    stepped out of the studio not once We could have gone stir crazy but we came out of there with a record we never knew was possible Inspired by the success of 2009 s critically acclaimed acoustic album Halfpenny Dancer the band entered Lemon Studios fully intending to repeat that winning formula However an Aladdin s Cave of intriguing instruments and eerie samples inspired the Quireboys to push the boundaries and shift the focus The plan was always to record some new acoustic songs and rework some originals added Spike But the plan changed There was something about that place the vibe got better and better and we just went with the flow Spike Paul Guerin Guy Griffin guitar and Keith Weir keyboards flew home with 10 new songs and a brand new sound Fans can hear the fruits of the Quireboys labours this spring when St Cecilia And The Gypsy Soul is released as part of a luxurious 4CD set featuring buried treasure and bonus cuts The new album will be packaged alongside Halfpenny Dancer finally available again and two discs covering the previously unreleased 2010 Halfpenny Dancer live show featuring fiddles pedal steel mandolin banjo and more This side of the band needs to heard added Spike And we ll be taking the new music out on the road with our most intimate tour yet The new album s title might hark back to the Quireboys rootsy legacy but the quality of its music

s ambition Or the chance to keep a precious legacy alive Call it 100 Pure Frankie Miller Spike s sparkling celebration of long time pal and inspiration Miller is a very special album indeed Many years in the making and finally brought to fruition by a famous band of rock n roll brothers 100 Frankie Miller is the ultimate tribute to a Scottish legend featuring lost treasures and previously hidden gems Bringing together the Rolling Stones Ronnie Wood famed Free rhythm section Andy Fraser and Simon Kirke Mott The Hoople s Ian Hunter and the brilliant Bonnie Tyler this heartfelt collection of classic songs has been lovingly compiled by The Quireboys lead singer Spike a family friend of the Millers and self styled custodian of an historic back catalogue Two decades after suffering the brain haemorrhage that cut short a colourful career Miller has emerged as one of rock s great survivors and his music lives on Frankie doesn t want sympathy said Spike He just wants his music to be heard These songs have never been heard before and they ve been recorded with Frankie s blessing They are songs that would have been lost if it wasn t for the desire of a group of his closest friends and biggest fans to do them justice Frankie Miller was and still is a massive influence on so many musicians myself included He has a special talent as a songwriter and that talent deserves to be celebrated Miller enjoyed chart success in the late 70s with Be Good To Yourself Darlin and and When I m Away From You and counts fellow countryman Rod Stewart amongst his biggest fans In 1999 the BBC filmed the documentary Stubborn Kinda Fella charting Miller s long road to recovery in the wake of his brain haemorrhage and now 100 Frankie Miller brings a remarkable story bang up to date 100
