I’m sure it’s been said many times before but The Quireboys’ music makes probably the perfect party soundtrack and this album is an excellent example of that. All the things they do best are here – rock and roll, bluesy numbers, more mainstream rock and ballads. Just pick your tracks to suit your mood and your all set for a great night. And they’re even better live so see them if you get the chance.
I have always been a massive thrash metal fan. Since the mid-80’s I have devoured as much of this style as possible. Many of those same bands I started on in high school are still out there doing it, but there are also plenty of bands today that are keeping that sound alive as well. None do it better than Ireland’s Gama Bomb. Culling their sound from that early thrash music, 1950’s sci-fi films, and comic book ideas, they are a brash, no holds barred and fun band.
