Traffic Jam

The sole claim to fame of Traffic Jam, who released one flop British single in 1967, is that they soon evolved into the much more renowned Status Quo. Traffic Jam actually grew out of the Spectres, another pre-Status Quo group who released a few obscure singles of their own. In May 1967, the Spectres changed their name to Traffic, which had to be changed to Traffic Jam to avoid conflict with the soon-to-be-famous group named Traffic that had Stevie Winwood in the lineup. Traffic Jam's sole single, "Almost but Not Quite There"/"Wait a Minute," was unremarkable pop, the A-side being a bouncy number with coy (and innocuous) sexual innuendo somewhat in line with some of the Troggs' more obscure efforts from that period. The B-side was a little like the Hollies or the Bee Gees, though again not nearly as memorable as what those two bands were doing in 1967. In August 1967, Traffic Jam changed their name to Status Quo, who in 1968 had their first hit with "Pictures of Matchstick Men." The rare Traffic Jam 45 has been reissued on several compilations of early Status Quo material. ~ Richie Unterberger
