Just as future U.S. glam superstars Motley Crue were cementing their bad-boy reputation Stateside on their party-as-you-go Shout at the Devil tour, on the other side of the pond, four young upstarts by the name of the Queerboys were taking their first baby steps as perhaps the heirs-in-waiting of a raucous barroom sound that the Faces and Rod Stewart helped to pioneer in the early '70s.
A Bit of What You Fancy Led by vocalist Spike Gray and guitarist Guy Bailey, the Queerboys [sic] were rounded out by bassist Nigel Mogg (the nephew of bassist Pete Way of UFO fame) and Paul Hornby on drums. Hornby quickly split to form future U.K. underground darlings the Dogs D'Amour along with toxic frontman, Tyla. By 1987, the Queerboys had changed their name to the more consumer friendly Quireboys and had added keyboard man Chris Johnstone, guitarist Ginger, and a drummer by the name of Coze to the fold. In 1988, the band recorded "Mayfair" and eventual live favorite "There She Goes Again" as a pair of singles for EMI U.K. imprint Survival Records. By 1990, Ginger had been fired (he would go on to form the critically acclaimed the Wildhearts), and after bringing in new drummer Ian Wallace to the fold, the Quireboys signed to EMI proper and recorded a stunning debut entitled A Bit of What You Fancy. On Fancy, the band made no bones of hiding their influences -- they didn't even have to try. The spirit of Rod Stewart, Ron Wood, and the Faces was well and alive on song's like "Sex Party," the gentle "Sweet Mary Ann," and especially the let's-drink-one-with-the-boys "7 O'Clock."
