Q is for... Quarterflash
After they obtained their teaching degrees, they taught school in Central Oregon. But after three years of teaching, they both took very early retirements and formed the band Seafood Mama. Seafood Mama was a wildly popular dance band and they played nearly every smoky hippy bar between Seattle and Portland in the late 70's.
Seafood Mama changed their name to Quarterflash. The name comes from an Australian slang description of new immigrants as "one quarter flash and three parts foolish".
Geffen Records signed them to their label and they released their self-titled album, Quarterflash, in September 1981. The album contained a new version of "Harden My Heart", which became their biggest single.
Quarterflash released their second album, Take Another Picture, in 1983. It scored the single "Take Me to Heart", which reached number 14 on the charts. After they released their third album in 1985, Back Into Blue, Geffen Records dropped them and they disbanded.
In June 2008, Marv and Rindy Ross released a new Quarterflash album, Goodbye Uncle Buzz, and in September 2013, the band released a new album, Love Is a Road, but these albums did not chart.
And that is the story of Quarterflash.
Here is today's earworm:
