Goodbye Horses

What ever happened to Q Lazzarus? And who were they in the first place?

I assumed Q Lazzarus was a band, but apparently it's one lone songstress. I found this excerpt on Wikipedia:

"Q Lazzarus is known for having a husky bass voice not unlike Kathleen Turner. Before she was discovered as a singer, she worked as a taxi driver in New York City. The band dissolved at some point before 1996. Apart from Q, Mark Barrett and songwriter William Garvey, nothing is publicly known about the other band members."

Spooky. I wonder if Q resumed her taxi driving or found success elsewhere, perhaps as a ranch-hand. Anyhow, we can only ponder these strange thoughts and thank our lucky stars that we have "Goodbye Horses".

Haizee, you've been holding out on me. Q Lazarus - What a great find. I love this song. Is Mark related to Syd Barrett?
