In 1989, financial troubles at IQ's record label Squawk led them to drop the band.
Vocalist Paul Menel and bass player Tim Esau decided to leave the band, and the remaining members put things on hold for a while.
Martin Orford joined Jadis........ many thought IQ was over.
However, on January 6th 1990 the band did a one-off show at the Marquee Club in London, featuring Martin on lead vocals and Les 'Ledge' Marshall on bass.
For the encores, original vocalist Peter Nicholls rejoined the band once more, much to the delight of a very surprised audience.
Following this, the band were offered a support slot for Magma's show in Paris on February 22nd.
This was to be IQ's very last show, were it not for Ledge's unexpected death, which made Peter, Mike, Paul and Martin decide to keep IQ going. John Jowitt joined the band in 1991, and the rest, as they say, is history !

Remastered from a low generation copy of the original analog audience recording using Sonic Foundry Sound Forge 7.0, Steinberg FreeFilter 1.1 and various other plugins.
Enjoy !
