    Criminally maligned by hipsters and fashion victims the world over, but surely you can't quibble with this fine collection of heads down, no-nonsense boogie?

    Paper Plane
    Break The Rules
    Down Down
    Roll Over Lay Down
    Rockin' All Over The World
    Whatever You Want

    Let's hear it for the relentlessly chugging QUO!
    existentialist and hash tag like this.

    I used to see the one with the blonde hair walking his (v.big) dog on my way to work some mornings, friendly guy who always said hello and chatted with people.

    Can't say I own any of their records tho!

    Not to mention they're ugly as fuck and men that old shouldn't be wearing trousers that tight :D

    sojourner Where's me readers?

    And let's not forget Down the Dustpipe, classic stuff there.

    I used to be in the Status Quo fan club, did I mention?

    When I was 12 obviously.

    Not now.

    It'd be a bit unsophisticated at 38, non?

    "Mediocre". "Tedious." "Unimaginative." And many other unforgettable titles from the Epithet Hit Parade!

    Mu mum is a big fan and I bought her a personally signed copy of their book a couple of Christmas's ago. I was told not to shake their hands too hard as they were on tour and didn't want any damage done.

    In the Army Now is a pretty good tune.

    Is that the one that sounds like a 45rpm played at 33?

    they're shit. and i saw them on a farewell tour about 22 years ago, yet the cunts are still going

    me too :oops:

    the southampton gaumont iirc

    It’s like DFS having constant sales.

    Gotta see the quo now as the tour MUST end this Friday

    I always thought they were a bit of a poor man's AC/DC without the tunes, image or anything else which makes AC/DC great.

    I don't mind some of their tunes but I don't understand quite why they are still so popular.

    Pictures of Matchstick Men?

    they are tediously unimaginative aren't they? Meat and potato rock and roll and its most bland ....

    Dubversion Gorn Enforced Holiday

    same here, or Poole Arts Centre, don't recall which.

    same year i saw Barclay James Harvest :oops:

    Only like their early psychedelic stuff... why couldn't they keep making music like that?

    I saw them on that tour as well & I'm happy enough to leave it at that.

    Rockin' All Over The World is also better done by John Fogerty IMO. there is a version on Download .com at the moment! :)

    I thought you didn't like cold, clever music.
  24. Wolfie

    Wolfie Well-Known Member

    Laibach are too funny to be cold - and I'd say witty rather than "clever"

    should something be added to the FAQ banning the glorifying of the Quo?
  26. Dubversion

    Dubversion Gorn Enforced Holiday

    yep. :)

    i think you've exaggerated my feelings on the matter, or moved from some specific to a general in some way. I don't discount anything purely on its temperature or intelligence. I probably tend towards stuff that is warmer and dumber, mind ;)

    I've got that somewhere.

    Can I stress that I haven't played it in well over 20 years though? :oops:

    In very limited doses, and when you're proper drunk, it can be OK party music. But once your musical taste/appreciation matures beyond a certain point ;) then you tend to start finding them very very tedious ...

    Down The Dustpipe is OK mind ...

    A mate dragged me to see them at Selhurst Park for some alleged farewell' gig or other in the eighties, maybe the same tour that Dub saw them at. Chas and Dave were one of th supporting acts. The latter were far better ....
