The Debutantes formed in 1983 in Vancouver. The group name didn't seem to fit, and was soon changed to Go Four 3. Around the end of the '90s there was one more name change, this time to Thrill Squad. Along the way, the lineup also went through its own growing pains with a number of drummers stepping in and out. Members -- at one point or another -- included lead singer Roxanne Heichert, bassist and pianist Gord Badanic, guitarist Stephen Quinn, and drummers Rob Tomkow, Joel Anderson, Ike, and Ian Noble.
In 1985, Go Four 3 released a debut single, "Just Another Day," and a self-titled debut EP that carried six tracks. The EP did well with many music reviewers, and with young people on college campuses in Canada. Still, nothing else appeared on the market from the group for two years. Finally, in 1987, a couple other singles popped up, and a full-length album, Six Friends. All the recordings were done under the Zulu Records label. In between the group's time in the recording studio, Go Four 3 increased its fan base by touring through Canada a number of times.
In 1989, using the new group name Thrill Squad, a third album was completed, It's Party Time. The party was over by then though, and there wouldn't be another recording.
