SJP


Artist: Mama Quilla II




Lorraine Segato (vocals, guitar) Lauri Conger (keyboards, vocals) Billy Bryans (drums, percussion) Linda Robitaille (saxophone) Susan Sturman (guitars) Jacqui Snedker (bass)

Susan Sturman's pro-lesbian political sextet had its beginnings back in 1977 and became a fixture on Toronto's Queen Street circuit with regular appearances at such clubs as The Beverley Tavern and The Bamboo. The group managed to endure 5 years on the scene and recorded one 12" EP in 1982 which was engineered by one young 'Danny' Lanois. The six-piece was augmented by vocalists Catherine MacKay and Lee Shropshire. Segato and Bryans were asked to organize a group for the 1982 Festival Of Festivals and Mama Quilla II personnel were unavailable so they grabbed Conger and several other area session players and formed The Parachute Club. Mama Quilla II effectively disbanded as The Parachute Club signed a recording deal with Current Records in 1983.
