It's rock. Searing, electric ,noise ridden, psych-garage pop rock with a sometimes folky twist. It's good times. It's something to think about.

Biography

QOJ developed at Morehead State University in the dirty, mid 1990's. The band members all cut their teeth on older sibling's vinyl collections featuring bands like Zappa and the Mothers, Moby Grape, Captain Beefheart, and the Rolling Stones. In real time, QOJ absorbed the sounds of Guided By Voices, the Replacements, and Sonic Youth. These influences rolled together into some really unique creations. Independent releases happen along the way. These recordings all sound a bit different based on the attitude and condition of the band when the tape rolls. QOJ has done regional gigging in towns like Lexington, Louisville, Cincinnati, Dayton, Knoxville TN, Charleston WV, and all the holes in between. There have been lots of dive bar shows and eerie festival appearances. Our longevity is alarming, especially to us. Despite our obscurity, it doesn't seem that we can stop. CD reviews in underground mags and occasional college radio airplay does sometimes occur and we go on and on.
