Helgi and Már soon left and Kormákur Geirharðsson took over the drums. This line-up was filmed for the documentary Rokk í Reykjavík and recorded three songs for the album of the same name. In 1982 this version of the band quit, but first it recorded a demo with all its material. This demo remained unpublished for 14 years.
Gunnþór, Ellý and Kormákur continued with Árni Daníel, a synth player. This version recorded two records. The first was Q1, which contained six songs, among them the band´s most popular, Böring. Q4U was then one of the most popular post-punk bands in Iceland, and in autumn 1983 it recorded four more songs, which were not published at the time.
This material did not surface until 13 years later. When Árni Daníel left the band in 1984 to study history the band called it a day. In 1996 the record Q1 and all previously unreleased material was released on the CD Q2, which contains 34 songs. It contained the 1982 demo and the four songs from 1983.
The group gave several concerts in 1996-1997 and appeared on national television (RÚV). Then it went into hibernation again. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
