PARLOPHONE – charted at #2 on February 4th 1990
They started life as “The Choirboys”, then for some reason, changed to “The Queerboys” before someone had a word and they became “The Quireboys”, ‘quire’ being the word for 4 pages of parchment…so they’re ‘The Old Paper Boys”
This is their first album and the only one out of 12 so far to break into the top 10. (Only 2 have charted)…and yet they’ve not got the message!
49 minutes of what producers of bloody awful TV shows imagine rock bands sound like. “Sex Party” in particular can stay in 1990.
I remember the main single “Hey You” very clearly and indeed it’s the only song I can listen to without wanting to shower immediately after hearing it.
09 – …just for “Hey You” which isn’t awful.
