Status Quo: Picturesque Matchstickable Messages From The Status Quo (LP, 180g Vinyl)

(Music On Vinyl) 12 tracks
In 1968 Status Quo's first hit "Pictures of Matchstick Men" was released and the debut album "Picturesque Matchstickable Messages from the Status Quo" followed shortly after.
The single reached #7 in the UK and remains the band's only major hit single in the US, where it reached #12.

The album features several cover songs, including "Green Tambourine" by The Lemon Pipers and "Spicks and Specks" by The Bee Gees.
Hailing from South London, Alan Lancaster (bass) and Francis Rossi (guitar) are part of the original lineup and are considered the founders of Status Quo.
Formerly known as The Spectres and later renamed Traffic or Traffic Jam, they decided on Status Quo as the final band name in 1967. In the following years they were joined by John Coghlan (drums), Roy Lynes (keyboards) and Rick Parfitt (guitar).

Status Quo

Status Quo are Francis Rossi (guitar, vocals, born May 29, 1949), Rick Parfitt (guitar, vocals, Oct. 12, 1948), Alan Lan-caster (bass, vocals, Feb. 7, 1949) and John Coghlan (drums, Sept. 19, 1946). As the Spectres, they recorded unsuccessful singles for Pye in the early Sixties with organist Roy Lynes (born Nov. 25, 1943), later becoming Traffic Jam, then Status Quo. Rossi's 'Pictures Of Matchstick Men' (Pye) provided them with a British Top Ten hit in 1968, and 'Ice In The Sun' was equally popular later in the year. Later singles flopped, Lynes left, and Status Quo's brief moment of glory seemed to have passed.

But they transformed their uncer-tain, ornate pop style into basic four-square boogie and re-turned to the charts in 1970 with 'Down The Dustpipe'. Mov-ing to Vertigo in 1972, they consolidated their position with further single hits (including 'Paper Plane' and 'Caroline' in 1973) and the albums Piledriver and Hello.

Status Quo are a major live attraction in Britain in the mid-Seventies and, surprisingly, have become a major influence on younger British bands.
