Quadrant 4

This photo appeared in today's Shields Gazette. Taken in June 1984 we're told it's a Hebburn based band - Quadrant 4. Centre of the picture is Ronnie Pearson (drums) and far right is pianist Stu Collingwood. The others are listed as, Ken Walker (bass and vocals); Rob Javan and Les Javan  (guitars and guitar synths.)
Any further details of this band?
The late Ronnie Pearson we remember from Last Exit whilst Stu Collingwood is still  going strong and playing better than ever.

Yes Lance. Me and my brother Tony were in the band for a while. Mick Knowles was the vocalist making up the 5 members of the band. I think I have some recordings somewhere of the original numbers that we made when we tried (and failed) to obtain a recording deal.

I remember this band. They practised in premises my Dad owned in Hebburn. Wonder where they all are now. Would be good to find out.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
