Let Spin Short Info

Formed in 2012, Let Spin is a collective that forges the progressive post-jazz scenes of London and Manchester. The band brings together four top genre-crossing instrumentalists from around the UK: bassist Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland), saxophonist Chris Williams (Led Bib), guitarist Moss Freed (Moss Project) and drummer Finlay Panter (Beats & Pieces Big Band). With each member contributing compositions, influences as far-reaching as Rage Against The Machine, Bill Frisell and Middle Eastern folk music collide to form a cohesive mix of angular riffs, wistful melodies, euphoric improv and heavy grooves. Just two months after their first rehearsal and subsequent UK tour the band recorded their eponymous debut album, released in February 2014 on the Manchester-based Efpi label.

Musically egalitarian, the band’s output is varied without being wayward, diverse without feeling unfocused – riffs and grooves rub shoulders with rowdy free playing and softer melodies, and despite the imaginative mixture of ideas there’s a cohesive element between the musicians that ties the overall sound together. It is this unique and winning formula that has rallied critics and electrified audiences around the country.
