QUINN - ‘Inbetween Worlds’
You’re going to like this one.
Quinn. More recently known as A Band Called Quinn. As far as I can tell, they still occasionally play live.
Anyway, I swung by Monorail this afternoon and came across a secondhand 50p copy of their debut album from 2001. I’d heard of their merits through the grapevine. After clarifying with the shop owners that it was in fact the same band, I snatched it up:
“Yup. That’s them. A Band Called Quinn. Alex Kapranos played a bit of guitar with them.”
True enough, you can actually hear his style bleeding through the guitar in this track and several others. That said, Louise Quinn’s voice is a classy find. A little ethereal. Weirdly charming. Early 2000s Glasgow talent at its best.
Let me know if you guys want to hear any more from it.
