Thermal And A Quarter (TAAQ) is a pioneering rock band from Bangalore. The band calls its music ‘Bangalore Rock‘, and makes a strong Indian connect even within the idiom of a ‘Rock‘ band. The TAAQ sound is open enough to accept Indian instruments and vocal stylings, and international enough to relate to global audiences.
TAAQ has supported international acts like Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Megadeth etc on tour in India; has completed tours in the UK, South–East Asia, Middle East. They recently toured the US and recorded their upcoming album, "3 Wheels and 9 lives" in New York. This album has been recorded and mixed live at New York by multiple Grammy™ winner: Kirk Yano.
Kirk is also known for his work with Miles Davis, Public Enemy & Mariah Carey.
