Short-lived 1980s California synth-pop project that came after [a=Q (16)] and prior to [a=Stacey Q]'s and [a=Jon St. James]' solo careers. Members worked in various arrangements both before and after SSQ's existence.

In a radio interview on September 22, 2006, Swain revealed that the idea for the name SSQ actually came from Jon St. James. She said that he was fishing in a lake "no bigger than a bathtub" and made a joke that the boat was the "S.S. Q," a reference to his and Stacey's current band, Q.
