    Default Steve Skaith and Mike Jones

    Latin Quarter

    Latin Quarter were formed in August 1983, initially consisting of Mike Jones (Lyrics), Steve Skaith (Vocals, Guitar) and Richard Wright (Guitar). This line-up has formed the backbone of Latin Quarter ever since. Mike Jones and Steve Skaith, both members of Big Flame a political organisation concerned with social justice, actually starting writing and home-recording two years prior to the formation of the band. It was said of Phil Ochs that the basis to his songwriting was that "A pamphlet, no matter how good, is never read more than once, but a song is learned by heart and repeated over and over" and this truth was one of the driving forces for Mike Jones and Steve Skaith.
