Nostalgic Music Wednesday: the Quireboys

Another great late 80s, early 90s band. In the US they had to change their name to the London Quireboys because of some other band (boo!) They were an amazing live band, I think this was another I had seen both here and in London. I do recall I met my husband right when they had hit NYC (thinking back, I think I met him the night before I saw them perform!) so the album (yes I have it in vinyl, looove my vinyl!) "A Little Bit of What You Fancy" will always be special to me. Special thanks to Nadia for making me go through my iTunes library!
