Website is back! In my opinion much less clunky and stripped down. To celebrate I thought I’d share this short Spotify playlist! Take a look and tell us what you think: http://www.theq-hq.co.uk If the playlist disappears for whatever reason use the link below: https://open.spotify.com/user/timfromtheq/playlist/3zEBNXYi5oZYrZIltQUwd2X   Cheers   Tim The Q http://www.theq-hq.co.uk  

We’re currently undergoing a complete re-furb of the website. Please bear with us while this is happening as things may look a bit strange at times! We shouldn’t be too long….   Cheers   Tim The Q http://www.theq-hq.co.uk

Looking forward to tonight’s gig in Frome at The Cheese and Grain. It’s always a privilege to be on the bill when FTJ are in town. We’ll be on early doors and it will be great to see you there support band fans!  

We’re on the last lap of our latest trip to Modernworld Studios. 4 tracks all recorded with Mike putting the last guitar line down at this moment. This is the first time we’ve used brass on any of our songs and it sounds amazing. Just the mixing to go now – really looking forward to […]

Over the last few weeks we’ve been working hard to perfect our latest tunes in readiness for the studio in early April. All 4 songs are coming on really well and we’ve been really pleased with what we’ve done so far. We’ve also started to write some brand new material too, which in these early stages (we […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the long awaited return of Hard Up’s Half Hour; the little known series of mixtapes by yours truly…. Take it Easy  Tim The Q http://www.theq-hq.co.uk mixcloud https://www.mixcloud.com/timfromtheq/hard-ups-half-hour-the-return/ width=100% height=120 hide_cover=1 light=1]

Unbelievable to think this original recording is ten years old! I remember Mike bringing this song to the band and being really impressed. I instantly liked it and still do. In a lot of ways I prefer this version that appeared on Takin’ a Detour Vol 3 than the one that eventually took a starring […]

  Weve spent some time over the Christmas period getting some new demos together with a view to hopefully recording with Greg Haver in the spring.  4 or 5 new songs , some of them showcased at recent gigs, will be ready to unleash on the general public hopefully in the early summer. watch this […]

Absolutely blinding night last night in Cardiff supporting FTJ and meeting our new friends The Riff. One of the best audiences we’ve ever had ( we really must get some more gigs in South Wales!).

Chemical Overload by the hard hitting modern Punk/Rock prodigies: The Q. is an EP to set your mind ablaze. From its pulse pounding rhythms that forever drive their melodies into your mind, to the rip-roaring wail of the guitar work. If one could imagine The Jam, Who and Ramones sat…

Great gig supporting From The Jam in Cardiff last night, as always a very enjoyable experience from the sound check right through to the last note! Very privileged to be able to have our own private FTJ ‘gig’ whilst watching them sound check. Setting Sons is my favourite Jam album so to be included as […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your big chance to help us get the new album recorded and produced…. The table above shows the monetary value of one million streams on Spotify and various other music streaming/download sites. Five grand (approx £3.5k) would probably be enough to get our next album recorded and produced. So here’s […]

And so to the IPO.. Two shows and an interview with Kurtis Powers of The Face radio on BBOX. We’ve met so many great people over the last few days, all of whom have been incredibly supportive of The Q Check out Kurtis’ show The Face’ here http://www.bboxradio.com/ Really big thanks to Dave Bash, Dave […]

And so to Pianos… Situated in lower Manhattan, this happening little venue hosted two separate gigs with bands from New York, Los Angeles and us from across the pond. The Cabinet Makers kicked off the show playing their own brand of Jazz – with original takes on the great American songbook. Adam, an acoustic act, […]

A rainy day in New York. A busy day in Bay Ridge with Dave Boogieman. Saw the sights (through the fog) of the Brooklyn shore and sampled Dave’s excellent hospitality whilst being interviewed for Radio New York International over Pizza. A quick stop off at the Guitar Centre to rectify a few technical issues from […]

Our first gig in NYC! The Trash Bar: just the kind of venue you would imagine; full of life’s rich pageant and intrigue. An unsurprisingly small gathering were there to see our inaugural show in the USA, however those who did attend showed enough enthusiasm for twice as many people. As with everywhere we’ve been […]

So here we are: Brooklyn NYC. A lengthy 8 hour flight plus an hour in a taxi and we finally arrived at our ‘home’ for the next week. Greeted by the lovely Debra and Toni we instantly felt at home. Being the hardly travellers that we are and despite the tiredness and jet lag we […]
