About this artist

Originally called The Debutantes, Go Four 3 (an airforce term meaning 'landing on an aircraft carrier': on scope, on target, perfect landing) formed in Vancouver,British Columbia,Canada in 1983 and became a staple of that city's live scene when they were discovered in 1985 by Zulu Records. Their six song self-titled EP in 1985 was produced by Rob Obvious with pre-production work by Greg Reely and Ric Arboit. Original drummer Ian Noble left soon after to be replaced by "Ike".

The EP sold 1500 copies and went Top-5 on most campus radio stations across Canada. Following their 5th cross Canada tour they recorded their 1987 follow-up LP 'Six Friends' for Zulu. Ike had been replaced by Rob Tomkow on drums who, in turn, was replaced part-way through the sessions by original drummer Ian Noble.

The band relocated to Toronto in 1988 to start recording what was intended to be their third album with producer Chris Wardman (Chalk Circle, Blue Peter). Drummer Ian Noble quit and returned to Vancouver after becoming homesick. He was replaced by NEOA4's Joel Anderson in 1989.

The band ended up going to England and remixing some of the songs from those sessions with Chris Wardman. At the request of management in the UK the band changed its name to . Some of the tracks from the Wardman sessions were eventually released on the Thrill Squad cd 'It's Party Time'.
