SSQ

Profile:
Short-lived 1980s California synth-pop project that came after Q (16) and prior to Stacey Q's and Jon St. James' solo careers. Members worked in various arrangements both before and after SSQ's existence. Other than the "Boomerang" album period, Jon St. James was always a key part of Stacey Q's solo releases. In 2020 they reappeared as SSQ with a new album.

In a radio interview on September 22, 2006, Swain revealed that the idea for the name SSQ actually came from Jon St. James. She said that he was fishing in a lake "no bigger than a bathtub" and made a joke that the boat was the "S.S. Q," a reference to his and Stacey's current band, Q.
