4Q were a punk band from Colwyn Bay (1987-90). Originally featuring Edi Filmstar (voc), Neil Crud (gtr), Wayne The Bastard (bass) and Paul Puke (drms). Edi quit after 4 gigs and Cumi Pants (voc) joined and Paul Puke was replaced by Matt Vinyl (drms) to make up the most prolific line-up in the band’s gigging history. By mid-1989 Gumpsh (gtr) and Robin (gtr) had joined after Wayne had left with Neil taking over on bass. Neil Crud smashed his bass on stage in Sept’90 and quit the band and despite Cumi looking to recruit a replacement things stopped.More
