Status Quo Record Anthem For Badly Equipped British Army: Photos

by | 15th, July 2010

WE went to see Status Quo record the video to their new re-release of their song In the Army Now with the 4 Riffles at their Kiwi Barracks in Bulford, Wiltshire. Before you snort and piss on the dying embers of an ageing rock band, know that it’s all for charity. The British Forces Foundation and Help For Heroes will benefit. If you say it’s rubbish, then you dishonour our Boys and Girls.

Says Francis Rossi: “It seemed like the right time to do this. The release is intended to show our support for allied forces around the world, but in particular, of course, the British armed forces. We want people to celebrate what they do, say thank you and also support this vital charity.”

The song is about being ill equipped for battle. As such, it should be the anthem for the British Army…
