Politics have been at the heart of Latin Quarter's music since the band's inception. Latin Quarter was formed in 1983 by Mike Jones (lyrics), Steve Skaith (vocals, guitar), and Richard Wright (guitar). Jones and Skaith began writing socially conscious songs as members of the political organization Big Fire. In December, 1983, Yona Dunsford (vocals, keyboard) and Carol Douet (vocals) were added to the line-up; nearly a year later, Greg Harewood (bass), Richard Stevens (drums), and Steve Jeffries (keyboard) joined the band and Latin Quarter's mix of folk, reggae, rock, and new wave started to evolve. The group released its first album, Modern Times, in 1985.
