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.

“A pop-art treat ” (Q)

“Our favourite Glaswegian music makers” (The Herald)

“…incredible songs…” (Big Issue)

Suspire

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.
