Let Spin are the tight British punk-jazz quartet formed in 2012 by Led Bib saxophonist Chris Williams and former Acoustic Ladyland bass guitarist Ruth Goller, with the similarly adventurous Manchester duo of guitarist Moss Freed and Beats and Pieces drummer Finlay Panter. The Guardian reports that they are ‘an electrifying live band whose grooves could wake the dead’.
‘New album Steal The Light “Steal The Light” sees Let Spin building upon their previous successes and subtly altering their sound, but without losing their essential group identity. Ian Mann – The Jazz Mann
The band’s strengths are guitar-led Bill Frisellian tone-poems that build to bagpipey sax anthems, laments pitched against metallic guitar chords like the steadily boiling climaxes full of spat-out sax yelps and throbbing basslines. The Guardian
