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.

This is the second benefit gig for Music For Hospitals, the first being the same time, same place last year. And once again, a resounding success – a celebration of those within the music scene along this patch of land who are no longer with us… Jonny Fflaps, Barry Cyrff, Al Maffia and Bern Elfyn Presli.
There are more (too many)… Maeyc Hewitt (Ectogram), Edi Filmstar (4Q), Les Morrison, Dave Griffiths (Joie de Vivre), O’Malley (Toilets), Ron Watt (Last Rights), Hugh Hughes (Y Brodyr), Chris Wright (Patchwork) and others who have contributed to our wonderful local music scene.More

What has “Flint Football Club” and the “San Siro Stadium” got in common?
‘Well, they both host football teams but not much else I guess’, quips Geoff Davies legendary drummer of Emily who drives me past Flint Castle with “Stations Of The Crass” on his car stereo.
