Michael Quinlan (musician)

Michael Quinlan was the lead singer of the Sydney-based indie pop/psychedelic 1960s inspired Prince Vlad & the Gargoyle Impalers and vocalist and rhythm guitarist with the Sydney-based Australian indie pop/indie rock band The Mexican Spitfires.

Michael wrote many Songs about Sydney in The Mexican Spitfires including two of the tracks on the band's debut EP "Lupe Velez" - "Sydney Town" and "You Can't Run (Forever)". Those tracks featured on the CD and double LP compilation of Reed Records songs "Asides and Besides".

"You Can't Run (Forever)" was perhaps the most frequently played track from the band on radio regularly featuring on Sydney's 2JJ (now 2JJJ) in the late 1980s and on independent radio stations including Radio Delfino and others in Catania, Italy.

"Sydney Town" featured on the band's maiden video and on the Sony Music compilation CD "Somewhere in Sydney: 30 Songs from the Harbour City".
