The Original Q
The Original Q is a rockin funky band hailing from somewhere between Khazad-dûm (where Gandalf faced the Balrog), the dagobah system, Angel I (the matriarchal class-M planet near the neutral zone), and Burlington Vermont. They have arrived to sooth your eighth cranial nerve with sound wave fluctuations so musical, its quantum physical. Entangled with the continuum of musical universe, they somehow bridge the gap between 3rd and 4th dimensions with relentless melodious and rhythmical exploration. So familiar yet so universally expansive, The Orignal Q is sure to bring you to that 4th dimensional musical level……….on so many levels……Whoa…….
