rude heap of bullshit ROCK band spinning yarns about
AMERICANA....land of lost dreams and assorted losers.
CherryDisc released the QA CD debut - "NEEDLES" on JUNE 18, 1996
Mastered by JONATHAN WYNER at M Works.
The video for the QA song "WAITRESS" was filmed at JACQUES BAR with lovely drag queen waitresses serving the drinks.
WBCN RUMBLE RAMBLINGS....
Planning their own brand of sabotage after late night meetings in the back of a motorhome in West Virginia are QUINTAINE AMERICANA; burning down the highway to hell, Big Black providing the soundtrack as they sit behind the wheel of Elvis' Black Cadillac. David Lynch directs the action with brake work guaranteed by the Birthday Party. Add in an illegal inspection sticker courtesy of Jawbox and the Jesus Lizard in the glove Compartment and Quintaine Americana pick up where Air Supply left off. Quintaine Americana come from a place where Ford Pick-ups and duck shooting hold a certain ground with the local rock scene. These good ol' boys moved to Boston to escape, only to discover coffee ridden lands and identical driving conditions minus the cattle crossings. Uneasiness being the main ingredient to Quintaine's sound, it comes as no suprise to discover that all the band members are simultaneously half-brothers and each other's uncles. Some call it ignorance, some call it fearless, but to challenge the awesome blast of QUINTAINE AMERICANA could just be plain suicide.
