QUIREBOYS Well Oiled SPV00008683 (2004)
Spike and the crew are back with this new studio set, and another cracker it
The rough gravelly (think Dan McCafferty) vocals front the slick whiskey
soaked sound well. ‘Good To See You’ features a touch of boogie, but is a
little disjointed as an album opener, while ‘The Finer Stuff’ feaures a hint
of AC/DC in places.
There’s the glam gloss, but underneath there’s all the swagger of the
Rolling Stones (and probably the same alcohol content too), and in tracks
like ‘Lorraine Lorraine’ a strong Rod Stewart influence - that’s Rod in his
Nine new tracks - all worth a listen. There’s still the twin guitar and
keyboards producing a full sound. A top new album.
