Threads of presents a band called QUINN and Suspire!
2012 saw Glasgow based art-pop quartet A Band Called Quinn eat themselves in a flurry of multimedia activity spawning an award nominated short film Oh Jackie & a critically acclaimed collaboration with Grid Iron theatre director Ben Harrison, Biding Time (remix).
Previously the band toured with Vanishing Point Theatre company in their production of The Beggar’s Opera . The album of songs from the show has sleevenotes penned by Scottish crime writer Ian Rankin .
Last year the band also released Red Light Means Go which quietly slipped into a few end of year best ofs.
The band can be heard on various soundtracks to films by the likes of David McKenzie & Penny Woolcock & TV series such as Lip Service (BBC 3) & The Borrowers (BBC 1).
Madonna once said ‘Louis Quinn has a wonderful voice’ on a blog.

“Our favourite Glaswegian music makers” (The Herald)
“…incredible songs…” (Big Issue)
Pioneers of the genre “Jagged Pop” (FHQ), Suspire embody the sensibilities of hardcore rock n roll married with their own philosophical injection of the popular song.
Known in their home town of Glasgow for their hands-on D.I.Y. approach to their art, the band have independently (i.e. without help from a big record label) released records on their own label, performed at some of the UK’s best small festivals, such as Rockness (NME) and landed international television appearances.
Having completed a number of singles and EPs, the band will release their debut album later in 2013.
This is part of the the series of ‘Live in Stereo’ recorded gigs from Threads of Sound with tracks from each band released on iTunes.
