Ingue Records Present Lund Quartet + Special Guests

Fri 1 October 2010 // 20:00

(Fri 1st Oct / 8pm / £4)

Lund Quartet are a new instrumental band from Bristol, playing a blend of Scandinavian jazz and melodic turntablism.

The band features piano, double bass, drums, turntable, and theremin, and moves between delicate experimental soundscapes and satisfying grooves. The use of the turntable as a lead instrument gives Lund Quartet an especially distinctive sound, using samples recorded especially for the band by some of Bristol's finest musicians.

Individually the members of Lund Quartet have been playing in Bristol for years in bands as diverse as The Glitzy BagHags, Dr Meaker and Ben Wesbeech. They have been writing together for a couple of years, but only in 2010 have they begun gigging and recording seriously. Lund Quartet recently played a packed out gig at the Future Inn Jazz Club in Bristol, a lazy Sunday afternoon on Queens Square at the Harbourside Festival, as well as reaching the finals of the Future Of Jazz competition. They are currently recording their first EP, due to be released in time for this much anticipated gig at the Cube.
