REVIEW: THE LONDON QUIREBOYS – “HEY YOU” (1990 SINGLE)
THE LONDON QUIREBOYS – “Hey You” (1990 single)
A curiosity unique to the UK 12″ single for “Hey You” included a live “Hoochie Coochie Man” on the B-side along with the anthem “Sex Party”.
The A-side common to all is of course “Hey You” from the hit debut album A Bit Of What You Fancy. It sounds classic from first crash of guitar. The Stones-y Faces vibe is immediately apparent, and fondly recalls the summer of 1990 when the need for such a sound heralded in the Quireboys and Black Crowes. It was completely unlike everything out by Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, and Warrant. Its refreshing reliance on slide guitar still sounds great in the speakers, but the rasp of singer Spike is its most defining trait.
The first B-side is the roudy “Sex Party” from the album. The boogie piano keeps it kickin’ hard.
All tracks are awesome, and still sound amazing after all these years!
