Moss Freed – Guitar, Ruth Goller – Bass, Chris Williams – Saxophone, Finlay Panter – Drums
Formed only in June 2012 Let Spin is a new band with members drawn from some of the UK’s premier “punk jazz” outfits of recent years. Thus Led Bib’s Chris Williams on alto sax joins forces with Acoustic Ladyland’s Ruth Goller on electric bass, Moss Freed (of Moss Project) on guitar and, fulfilling the Manchester connection, Fin Panter of Beats & Pieces Big Band at the drums.
As such the band’s musical direction 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 on offer there’s a cohesive element at work that ties the overall sound together. It’s a winning formula that’s gone down very well with audiences on their previous tours, and with the release of their eponymous debut album announced to coincide with a UK tour, February 2014 will see Let Spin hit the road again with renewed energy.
