Vocalist Jenny Morris formed QED in Sydney in 1983 with guitarist Rex Goh (ex-Air Supply), bassist Ian Belton (ex-Dave Dobbyn) and drummer Shane Flew.
Signing to EMI the band released their debut single, Everywhere I Go, in December 1983.
Thanks in part to an appearance on Aussie music show Countdown, the single reached #19 in the national charts.
The follow-up single Solo and More failed to chart, while their third single, This One, reached #45 on the national singles charts.
QED recorded their first album, Animal Magic (1984), with the addition of some other musicians, including keyboardist Amanda Vincent (Eurogliders), drummer Steve Fearnly, saxophonist Tony Buchanan, and Ricky Fataar (also on drums). Sales were low and the album did not chart.
Jenny Morris – who at one time had been the leader of a band in New Zealand called The Wide-Mouthed Frogs – went on to tour the world as a backing singer with INXS and eventually enjoy a very successful solo career.
Morris later developed spasmodic dysphonia – a rare neurological disorder which causes spasms in the larynx and forced her to stop performing.
