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.
