Biografia

Quarterflash was an American rock group formed in Portland, Oregon, in 1980. The band was made up of lead singer and saxophonist Rindy Ross, her husband, guitarist Marv Ross, guitarist Jack Charles, keyboardist Rick DiGiallonardo, bassist Rich Gooch and drummer Brian David Willis.

Recording history

The group was formed by merging two popular Oregon bands, Seafood Mama and Pilot. They originally released the single “Harden My Heart” in Spring 1980. It was a big hit on Portland radio stations, and got the band a one-hour TV special, Seafood Mama In Concert, on KOIN on June 5, 1980. “Harden My Heart” would later be rerecorded by the band after they renamed themselves Quarterflash. The name came from an Australian slang description of new immigrants as “one quarter flash and three parts foolish”, which the Rosses found in a book at producer John Boylan’s house.

Quarterflash signed to Geffen Records and released their self-titled debut album Quarterflash in 1981. It reached #8 on Billboard’s Top LPs & Tapes list, and sold over a million copies, earning RIAA gold certification on February 5, 1982, and platinum status on June 29, 1982. The album contained the new version of “Harden My Heart”, which became their biggest single. It reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 (it also reached the Top 20 in France). Their follow-up single off the album, “Find Another Fool”, reached #16. A second one-hour Portland television special, Quarterflash In Concert, was broadcast on KOIN on October 22, 1981, and simulcast on KGON. This concert was taped at the Paramount Theatre on October 15, 1981.

    Originally a local Portland Oregon band called,"Seafood Mama" 1n 1979-1980. We Portlanders were so proud to see them hit big .1st Bill Walton and the very young Trail Blazers winning the 1977 Championship and then a local band :)

    The wild blend of Guitar, Sax and Rindy's voice has made this band one of the most mesmerizing bands for me that are still just as good to listen to today...

    I remember Quarter Flash from when I was stationed in San Diego in the 80's. I thought it was interesting that Rindy Ross was so - well - struck me as a Karen Carpenter with all the talent of singing and musical instruments that she played. Too - that the inital name of their band (Seafood Mama) may have set them back - changing to Quarter Flash earlier might have helped them get started earlier - LOL...
