  • A more in depth bio on the band:
    Welsh UK Prog/Hard Rock act NO QUARTER formed in 1980 and the quartet released their debut cassette, the five song "Songs In Circles" on Neon Records, in 1981.
    The band also had the track "Power And The Key" featured on the 1982 Heavy Metal Records compilation album "Heavy Metal Heroes II".
    Further exposure came via a well received four song BBC Friday Rock Show session later the same year.
    No Quarter released a further cassette, the seven song "Uncertain Future" in 1982, but this was later withdrawn.
    No Quarter performed a somewhat unusual gig during 1983 at the Broadmoor Hospital for the Criminally Insane, which they later revisited on the track "Broadmoor Blues".
    Another release, the classic 3 song 12" "Survivors" EP on Reel Records came later in 1983.
    The band's final release came in 1985, the 3 song "Birds Of Prey" EP was issued by Bonzo Bear Records, before the band went on indefinite hiatus.
    Having not been a going concern for some years, No Quarter reformed in 1992 with a 14 song, misleadingly titled, "Best Of" album being released through Vinyl Tap Records in 1994.
    The album featured eleven previously unreleased remastered tracks which were recorded by the band at various points throughout their career but never issued, alongside the three songs from the "Survivors" EP.
    A new line up of the band, featuring longtime members "Snappi" Lyes and Dave Young, gigged around the time of the album's release, but issued no further product.
