The Quireboys Debut “Mother Mary” Video
December 3, 2013
The Quireboys have released a music video for “Mother Mary”, the latest single from the band’s recent studio album ‘Beautiful Curse’.
With ‘Beautiful Curse’ The Quireboys are back where they belong — at the forefront of the British rock scene and delivering music made for sweaty clubs and massive festivals alike. Vocalist Spike, guitarist/bassist Guy Griffin and Paul Guerin and keyboardist Keith Weir have emerged as a rock solid quartet capable of fusing the old with the new and providing these national treasures with a reliable platform from which to drive forward.
Locked away at renowned producer Chris Tsangarides’ Kent studio in the spring of 2013, the foursome took time out from supporting NWOBHM titans Saxon on a full UK tour to put the finishing touches to the brilliant ‘Beautiful Curse’. “We’re very happy with how it worked out,” said Guerin at the time of the album’s release through Off Yer Rocka Recordings. “As a group Spike, Griff, Keith and I have been working together for some time and this album sums up exactly where we are as a band right now. It’s the sound of the Quireboys in 2013 and it’s a sound we’re very proud of.”
It’s already been a big year for Spike and the boys with an appearance on the 2013 Monsters Of Rock cruise — sailing from Florida Keys — and a slot opening up for prog rock legends Rush on the main stage at Sweden Rock. “That was massive for us,” added Spike. “We were treated like kings and all had our own dressing room! We played an acoustic set before Rush in front of thousands of fans and it was like some kind of dream.”
Twenty-three years after ‘A Bit Of What You Fancy’ catapulted the good time rock ‘n’ rollers into the big time, the band is still crafting killer albums oozing understated cool and a well-intentioned swagger. “It’s a great time to be in the Quireboys and I love playing with such a great band,” concluded Guerin. “This is rock n roll — the way it was always meant to be.”
