In a previous life Q was known to friends and acquaintances as Colm Quearney, the guitarist and songwriter with not one but TWO of Ireland’s more daring bands (DRAGONFLY 1991-94 & LIR 1994-1999). As if being one of the country’s top guitarists in both the studio and the road for headline acts such as Jerry Fish & the Mudbug Club, Mundy, Mark Geary, Bronagh Gallagher, and Pugwash were not enough, Colm released his first solo album “The World’s Not Round” to overwhelming critical success in 2001 on his own Strange Vibe Records. The success of his debut proved to be a beacon for the independent music community thus proving you don’t need to be signed to be major record company to make a brilliant album!
Back during the tail end 2003 Colm simply became Q to the delight of small children and grown-ups everywhere. His current band, HALLUCINATIONS, features Zamo Riffman [drums], Andy McDonald [bass], and Bill Blackmore [trumpet]. With the classic power quartet line-up in place, the band went to work on what would emerge as the “Body Electric” album, covering a wide range of genres from 60’s Spector pop lushness to esoteric garage rock to reckless abandoned roots with a twist.
Featuring the previously hip singles “Carol” & “Baby Lets Dance” and now “No Pulse”, Q’s critically aclaimed album “Body Electric” manages to broaden horizons everywhere. Truly a must buy for every household.
