To my ears cammy, Slade's 'Run Runaway' could have been something from the 'Big Country' songbook! ...lightly seasoned with a bit of Quo.
Chicken or the egg...but when my dad used to play his album version of Bob Dylan's 'Watching The River Flow' in the mid 70s I would think Quo! Actually think Quo could have covered that track and added something of their own.
When my daughter was a few years younger, she was completely taken with the 'Horrible Histories' TV shows and in particular the Horrible Histories Songs. I'm not being flippant here when I say that I must have heard the songs possible a hundred times over the years and as soon as I hear their 'Blue Blooded Blues' song or the 'Henry the Seventh' song I can't get Quo out of my head!
Some say the 'Henry the Seventh' song is Bowie, The Sweet etc, which undoubtedly it is but with a smattering of Quo for me!
These two old favourites of mine always reminded me of Quo. I love this Oasis track but I have no idea why I associate it with the overall Quo sound. I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's just in the structure and melody of the song. It's certainly less obvious than something like Roll With It.
Moon Martin I've loved as an artist since I first heard this in the late 70's.
All 12 apostles can't be seen from the shore Some hide behind the others There's always people taking pictures
This ain't gonna go down well but the first time I heard All Around My Hat back in the early 70s I said to the guy playing it "That's the Quo riff". With a bit of commitment and a (completely) different production they could have done a fantastic version. Once Bitten Twice Shy was a great choice as a cover too but they cut it short and did a 'by numbers' recording of it and it was sh1t.
For some strange reason, I just love that Mooi Wark song, very catchy, very Quo in some ways, a bit like Burning Bridges maybe! I've played it a few times already. Anyone know what the title means? Are they Norwegian?
juansupposin: Love the song, even the RIFF track!

granny: But @4th Chord regarding your new rule...if the man running the country (Dominic Cummings) can weave a fairy tale around known facts why can't we be just as creative?

juansupposin: 21st September 91 at Wembley, the 45 min Guinness concert, probably not the best concert to start, only 45 min, I remeber thinking they will play longer because it was the last concert

backwater67: Paul Hirch filled in for Quo when Andy’s wife was unable to tour. Aquostic was a complete different project for Quo. I was referring to a standard regular live gig on stage with session guitarists. Jagger does still take the lead vocal.
