It was 1980 something and we’re in a small club called Mardi Gras in Nottingham, opposite the train station, we are here to see a new band called The Quireboys, It’s fair to say that was a very good night. Fast forward far too many years and we are now in The Rescue Rooms to see the very same band (Well almost).
We all know the controversy about how Spike has been sacked by the band, this caused a big outcry from the fans and I know a lot of you asked for a refund. Spike has recently stated that he is forming an alternate version of the band called Spikes Quireboys.
So given this we were not sure what to expect tonight, would anyone show up, would they be any good without Spike. Well I have to say Yes and Yes, they were very good, Guys vocals were spot on if you just listened to the performance you would not know the difference. We had a good size crowd and they loved it, everyone sang along to the classics.
If you love your Quireboys, I have to tell you, you won’t be disappointed with the new line-up and I really didn’t expect to say that. They played hit and hit ending as they always have to with I Don’t Love You Anymore, 7 O’Clock, and Sex Party. Still a great live band and experience.
