The band later centered around Khyber. Khyber, Benny och Lindell founded the band in 1985. for a time they used several monikers but since '86 and forth they called themselves q-Department. Lindell left the band early and a few years later founded Statemachine. The first recording was made by Khyber, Benny and Erik Cronqvist (deRekum Trio, Zebra Pares, Genetic Stress DI-source).

Khyber kept the bandname also after Benny left and he has been carrying its banner since. q-Dept. have beed clearly influenced by Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly, Depeche Mode and Ministry. The band has seen several transformations and had small appendices ("[kju]", "d.c", "Independent state of" etc) to its name to represent the different settings but is generally referred to as only q-Department. The name of course comes from Ian Fleming's James Bond stories.

At the time of migration to Malmö the band used mainly the name Independent State. For a time they had some minor national success, touring with Pouppée Fabrikk, participating on compilations and releasing demos. In the mid 1995 they were almost replacement for Nitzer Ebb att Arvikafestivalen, but being the main act being cancelled they weren't concidered big enough for it and latin 'hip-hop' act Infinite Mass took their place. They also supported a few international ebm acts on a shourt tour in Europe in the late 90's. For a time Khyber played in Cat Rapes Dog while Annelie Bertilsson toured with And One. Khyber also played in Headtrip Inc with John Wreibo-Lindqwister (of Cat Rapes Dog and Lisa Gives Head). Khyber is presently working on new material that removes itself from the earlier sound. b.D settings: q-Department (pre 1989): J K Westlund, BJ Nielsen, Rikard Lindell q-Department (ca 1990-94): J K Westlund & Erik Cronqvist (aka Comma Counter Garver, Jazz-Axel, deRekum Trio & Genetic Stress) with Mette Hedin 1990-91 & Stefan Glawing 1990-91 q-Department d.c (ca 1994-97) J K Westlund,'Max' Mats Persson, Ulrika Landström, Sara, Oskar Wilkenson 1995-97, Tobias Karlsson 1996-97 q-Department [kju:]: J K Westlund, Micael Sanden, Jesper Grankvist, John Wreibo-Lindqwister q-Department (ca 2000): J K Westlund, Magnus Retaro Larsson, Olivia Rundqvist Independent State (as late as 2005): Read more on Last.fm.
