SPIKE It's A Treat To Be Alive Demolition Records (2007)


Quireboys frontman Spike releases his second solo album on September 3rd.

Entitled 'It's A Treat To Be Alive' the album has a slower, bluesier feel than the classic rock sound of the afore mentioned Quireboys and at times has a real Rod Stewart feel to it- this is at it's best on tracks such as 'Wins, Ties and Losses' and 'When I'm Away From You', whilst on 'Be Good To Yourself' there is a real Faces sound going on.

Other highlights include 'She's A Rolling Stone', the country feel of 'Won't Ya Stick Around', 'Without You' and a cover of the Slade hit 'Everyday'.

Whilst we all love a bit of the party anthems of the Quireboys, this is an honest album with 14 tracks full of heart and passion and will appeal to fans of the band.
