OK, so the name 1QA does suck. It’s a terrible band name… but then again, so is Red Hot Chili Peppers, but when you make good music, it doesn’t matter what you’re called. Emigrants from New Zealand to Melbourne, I’ve never seen these guys live. But when they list awesome cool bands like Mogwai, Swervedriver, Cornelius and Godspeed You! Black Emperor as influences, they get my vote… despite the fact that they sound nothing like those aforementioned groups. They have a release out entitled All The Colours, go check it out… we have a song called ‘The Jackal’ below for your listening pleasure!
