Introducing... A Band Called Quinn

Share this article

Singer-songwriter Louise Quinn and drummer/producer Bal Cooke met whilst dressed as aliens working for a street theatre company in Glasgow.

Both had a love of intergalactic electronic sounds and flopping around to indie music. A Band Called Quinn was born.

Soon added to the line-up were trumpet player Robert Henderson and Steve Westwater, a glam-rock obsessed bass player from the Highlands.

It wasn't long before the spaced-out combo starting getting attention. Parisian superstar DJ Kid loco flew Louise over to Paris to sing on his album and braved the Glasgow climate to produce an album called Luss for the band.

Their new album Sun Moon Stars features the production skills of Kid Loco and guitar skills of Echo and the Bunneymen's Gordy Goudie.
