RAW, ROUGH AND BRILLIANT IN 1988/89: Ever wish you could say..”I saw The Quireboys before they went big..before they recorded all their albums and before they had been playing and recording for 30 years!”? Well, here’s your chance. Here’s a 47 minute VHS rescued gem from a show back in 1988/89 recorded at a pub in the U.K. (thanks to Michael Max John Wormald) just prior to the release of their debut album “A Bit Of What You Fancy”. Band members were Spike, Nigel Mogg, Guy Bailey, Ginger, Chris Johnstone and Nick Connell. The songs are in the raw…rough…brilliant!! Enjoy.
