The Swimming Pool Q's are an American new wave/jangle pop band formed in Atlanta, Georgia in 1978. They released five albums: The Deep End, The Swimming Pool Q's, Blue Tomorrow, World War Two Point Five, and Royal Academy of Reality. The band was formed in 1978 by Jeff Calder (vocals, guitar, saxophone, theremin) and Bob Elsey (guitar), who recruited Billy Jones (bass guitar), and Robert Schmid (drums).
In 1988, the Swimming Pool Q’s appeared in the movie Brain Damage performing Corruption from the group’s album Blue Tomorrow. At a special April screening at Atlanta’s historic Plaza Theatre, presented by the Videodrome dvd rental shop, the Q’s Jeff Calder and Bill Burton introduced the cult horror classic with a short film especially created by Bill for the event. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, the Q's were literate and buoyant, a Dixie-noir blend of the B-52's, Sixties folk rock and the Velvet Underground circa Loaded.

album is a cleaner, tighter listen, sounding a bit like jangle pop produced so it was actually pop. Its 1986 successor, Blue Tomorrow, made commercial concessions, particularly in its cavernous production - it is open without being driven by a forceful rhythm section, the opposite of Lifes Rich Pageant - but they still had their off-kilter Southern weirdness.
