The Prawn Cufflinks Review Of 2010



On the surface, Prawn Cufflinks may look like a website that's permanently trapped in the past. But once a year, as the air vibrates to the jingle-jangle of sleigh bells, the hooting and a'howling of excited children and the whisper of the solitary soul still brave enough to sing along to Gary Glitter's Another Rock N' Roll Christmas, we like to take you on a look back over the past year through our eyes, and attempt to prove that we do love some modern stuff, honest.

Yes, it's time for the fifth annual Prawn Cufflinks Review Of The Year! From humble beginnings waffling some guff about Nick Knowles, ROTY (as we still insist on calling it) has slowly become as much a part of Christmas as Her Majesty The Queen, ITV3's On The Buses marathon and a 2am screening of Confessions Of A Window Cleaner. In fact, we probably get as many viewers as the latter.

It's a time to say thank you to the people and things that have given us a lot of pleasure during the year. A time to celebrate the ignored and the overlooked. A time to encourage people to stop taking themselves so seriously and just enjoy a bit of fun like Titanic II, for example, without having to worry about the harm it might do to their reputation. But above all, it's a time for us to justify making a big, long list (and we do check it twice).

So, with our traditional speech out of the way, we just want to say thank you to everybody who has visited Prawn Cufflinks during the year. 2010 has been our most successful year to date - even John Schneider started following us on Twitter! We may not be so talkative in our posts these days, but we really do appreciate every single page view (including the ones from people looking for actual prawn-shaped cufflinks who tend to scarper at the first sign of tits).

And with that being said, all that's left is for us to bid you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - see you in 2011!

Gareth & Louise

Status Quo - Quid Pro Quo Tour - Cardiff International Arena - December 10th, 2010 - Live Performance Shots



True to our word, we booked our tickets for this year's Quid Pro Quo tour as soon as the dates were announced. Getting in early meant that we found ourselves in the sixth row centre (the closest I had been since 1996), but on the downside we also had to wait thirty-three weeks for the experience. In hindsight, the time passed relatively quickly, although it certainly didn't feel like it. But eventually, Friday 10th December arrived and we found ourselves outside Cardiff's International Arena, impatiently waiting for the doors to open.

As always, a superb time was had by all. Quo were fantastic, the atmosphere was superb, the setlist threw up some surprises including Forty-Five Hundred Times and For You, and Francis spent most of the evening ogling Louise's boobs! Rick also caught my eye a few times and seemed to have a look on his face that asked; aren't you the 13-year-old boy who almost collapsed from fear when we met you on the Just For The Record book-signing tour of 1993?" Either way, it certainly didn't put him off his stroke.

Thanks to our new digital camera (purchased earlier in the year especially for the occasion), we were able to take some great shots this time around. Firstly, a selection from Joe Brown's excellent support slot (he even gave a smile for the camera). Then around a hundred from the main attraction (plus some trucks, buses and an empty arena) follow below.

The set-list in full:

Caroline
Something 'Bout You Baby I Like
Break The Rules
Mean Girl / Softer Ride
Forty-Five Hundred Times
Hold You Back
Beginning Of The End
Mystery Song / Railroad / Spinning Wheel Blues / Wild Side Of Life / Rollin' Home / Again And Again / Slow Train
The Oriental
Creepin' Up On You
For You
In The Army Now / Drum Solo
Paper Plane
Roll Over Lay Down
Down Down
Whatever You Want
Rockin' All Over The World
