Q*Ball - John Hughes

Biography

Q*Ball was born of one Brooklyn-based bald man's love of electronic music. As a huge fan of 80's synthpop (Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears), 90's industrial (Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie), & experimental pop/rock (U2, Faith No More, Radiohead), young Q decided to put together musical ideas in a cost-effective way, incorporating the sounds of all his favorite bands.

Editorial Reviews

Q*Ball's third album combines the quirky electronica and sonic brilliance of Q's previous albums with a more straightforward pop/rock sensibility, featuring live drums, acoustic guitars, grand pianos, and, once again, the capable skills of guitarist & co-producer Bumblefoot. "This Is Serious Business" illustrates Q*Ball's growth as an artist, a label guru, and, most of all, as a man. Twelve new songs encompassing everything from pop to punk, from pianos to pizza - Q*Ball remains as eclectic as ever, but one thing is for sure, making quality music is seriously his business.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Let's get SERIOUS!" November 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I think it is safe to say that Darkwing Duck has nothing on Q*Ball. In previous albums we found him waist-deep in 80s movie-style ballads, quirky electronica, and a bit of tongue in cheek goodness. But, as the title suggests, Q is moving to a new point in his life. This isn't to say that he's forgotten where he came from, with songs like "Music and Pizza Boy" and "Small Business Development Center" clearly showcasing that quirkiness and electronica that we've grown to love. Nor have we seen him abandon the rock ballads that make the girls swoon and the men turn green. What is serious about this is the overall presentation, much more focused than before, and much more grounded in life. Plus, I have yet to hear a more seriously performed song about PEZ than is featured here.

For those that loved older Q*Ball albums and fear he's lost something with this release, put those fears to rest. Q hasn't abandoned you and the opener "His Name is Goliath" will assure you of that. And for those that didn't quite feel connected to previous records, this is what you were waiting for! Trust me, I'm serious.
