(Podcast/Video) STATUS QUO ... In 40 Minutes
Time for the second edition of our new series where we curate what we think are the best 40 minutes of music from an underrated band's career ... with headbangers and hard rockers in mind (ie. you won't be hearing many ballads or hits!).
Basically, it's what we'd put on a single vinyl release (being limited to 20 minutes per side) if we were asked to put a Best Of record together to convince the uninitiated long haired miscreant that this band is worth checking out.
This episode is dedicated to U.K. boogie kings ... Status Quo.
Jeff, our curator for this episode says:
"For those readers who aren't British, legendary rockers Status Quo got their start in 1962 in the UK, putting out their first album in 1968. They remain active to this day. Over the decades they transitioned from pop to hard boogie rock, back to a lighter radio-friendly sound, finally settling into a rock'n'roll niche. They have sold about 125 million albums (!). Of the hundreds of songs they have recorded on over 30 albums there are scores that most metal heads and fans of hard rock will enjoy."
