The queue outside HMV on Oxford Street was huge. Stretching down London’s busiest shopping street and full of people wearing denim and leather and sporting some very suspect haircuts. The event? ‘The Quireboys’ signing in-store their debut album ‘A Bit of What You Fancy’. It’s been a hard road for the band up until this point as it’s taken six years of sweat and blood to get to this point but persevere they did and now, in 2014, Spike (vocals), Guy Griffin (guitars), Paul Guerin (guitars) and Keith Weir (keys) help The Quireboys celebrate 30 years in the music business.
‘The Essence of Silence’ also from the current album was next and then the band commented about the recent tragedies in Paris and asked the audience for a minute’s silence. The whole audience obliged and I must say it was a strange moment at a concert when the whole place fell silent out of respect.
