Status Quo reach 100 - not out!

quo1

The world knows that Status Quo have had a longer career than almost any other band ever, but who would have thought that would get to 100?  The band’s  single ‘Bula Bula Quo’ is their 100th in an incredible series that began with ‘Pictures of Matchstick Men’ back in 1968.  As befits such an auspicious release, the single has been A-Listed by BBC Radio 2 and the ‘Bula Quo!’ album from which it is taken is the station’s ‘Album Of The Week’ from 10 June – the date for release for both single and album.

Francis Rossi said, “One hundred singles seems incredible even to me, and I recorded them all!  When we started out, we would have been happy to survive a couple of years in this business so to reach this milestone is unbelievable.”  Fellow Centurion Rick Parfitt added, “We always joke that you’d get less time for murder but, in all honesty, we’d like to thank all the Quo fans all over the world who have sustained us on what has been an amazing ride.”

Disc One of the much anticipated album release features 9 brand new tracks which are taken from the soundtrack of the band’s forthcoming debut feature film “Bula Quo!”  The second disc contains exclusively reworked or live versions of 10 classic Quo hits, also as featured in the film, including an amazing Fijian-style rendition of “Living On An Island”.

In their forty fifth year, the band are going from strength to strength.  The “Bula Quo!” film is being released to over 200 screens in the UK alone from 5 July.  The band will also undertake their traditional UK Winter tour in December of this year.

Yesterday the band released the brand new single 'Looking Out For Caroline', the second single from 'Bula Quo'
