DVD/Blu-ray: Status Quo: Hello Quo – Access All Areas (15)
Those hankering for Spinal Tap absurdity will only be partly satisfied with this horribly gripping documentation of Status Quo, which charts the hairy outfit's first gigs at the likes Butlins and the Red Lion in Leytonstone, their "far out" early singles ("Pictures of Matchstick Men"), their love of denim, three chords and drugs and their gradual decline from 1985's Live Aid onwards.
Talking heads such as Sir Cliff, Brian May, Paul Weller, Jim Davidson (ouch) and Jeff Lynne confess their love for the Quo, British rock's guiltiest pleasure.
