Hair Metal Monday 03/02/2015

Instead of the usual sunset strip glam this week we're going across the pond to merry ole England.

The London Quireboys (they had to use the London preface only in the US) weren't the typical late 80's hair band. While most everyone else borrowed liberally from either Kiss or Aerosmith, it only took about 10 seconds to realize these guys were going all in on stealing from The Faces. Bless 'em for it too. Imagine a 'Shake Your Moneymaker' era Crowes with English accents and a lot more hair and makeup and you're just about there.

Fun fact, Ginger from The Wildhearts was briefly in The Quireboys in 1987-88, before they signed their major label deal. So having probably my favorite musician of all time in their lineup definitely scores them some extra credit. Though in all honesty and fairness I loved this record in 1990, way before I knew who the hell Ginger was.
