We Ain’t Complainin’… A Unique Collection Of Status Quo Memorabilia, Tour Programmes & T-Shirts – In Now

We’re Rockin’ All Over The Years with this unique collection of memorabilia that includes numerous tour programmes accompanied by the official merchandise t-shirt from the gig (many unworn), and accompanying ticket stubbs, fan magazines, rare box sets and autographs.

A cherished and lovingly acquired collection came our way with sets that are unlikely to be attained again.

Just For The Record, We Can’t Stop (stop! I hear you say) … yes it’s Thirsty Work… sorry. The puns are coming thick and fast but we all need something to chuckle about.

Pictures of Matchstick Men’ is the first hit single by Status Quo, released in November 1967. It reached number seven in the UK charts and number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their only hit single in the United States. The song opens with a single guitar repeatedly playing a simple four note riff before the rhythm guitar comes in with chords and the drums and lyrics begin. Francis Rossi said about the song: “I wrote it on the bog. I’d gone there to get away from the wife and mother-in-law. I used to go into this narrow frizzing toilet and sit there for hours, until they finally went out. I got three quarters of the song finished in that khazi.”

Strictly limited to just 75 numbered copies….Printed on fine art paper, signed, stamped and numbered by Morgan Howell Size 13″ x 19. Note, this print is not framed and the image is a suggested frame style only.

    STATUS QUO Picturesque Matchstickable Messages From The Status Quo (Impossibly rare DEBUT album from one of the world's best known rock bands, here in their first psychedelic incarnation, which they were soon to discard in favour of their morefamiliar sound as the album failed to chart and the follow-up Spare Parts fared as badly. The acid-induced sound makes some good use of phasing and psychedelic whimsy vocals to give a very definite 1967-68 sound. The album includes covers ofSpicks And Specks and Green Tambourine as well as the original standout tracks Black Veils OF Melancholy and Technicolor Dreams as well as the well known Pictures Of Matchstick Men, front laminated flipback picture sleeve. The sleeve shows just a little light creasing to the laminate, whilst the unlaminated reverse still remains a nice off-white & the text on the spine is clear and legible. The labels shows just light spindlewear and the vinyl itself has a smattering of light marks leaving it EX/EX- and a knockout copy! NPL18220)
