- Three Weeks

Thermal And A Quarter are an incredibly tight three piece band who play contemporary Indian rock with a refreshing sense of humour.

The pounding drums and funky, driving bass form a formidable rhythm section at the heart of the trio; meanwhile guitarist and frontman Bruce Lee Mani also has fantastic technical ability and a clear love for what the band do, but never takes himself too seriously, offering often humorous lyrics and jokey patter.

As well as being enjoyable and entertaining, their songs are also musically very interesting, one example being the fusion of southern Indian folk with blues.

This is rock with a twist at its finest.

From India

There are still fakirs and snake-charmers in India. Only now, they use iPhones and Google. Heck! Even our elephants know what RAM is.

Thermal And A Quarter is the non-Bollywood musical voice from this India. Imagine a Yes meets The Beatles via The Police while out for curry vibe. Our sound is that and more.

After rocking NYC, London, Hong Kong, Seattle, Dubai, Singapore and opening for Guns 'n’ Roses, Deep Purple and Jethro Tull, TAAQ now spices up the Fringe.

'Impossibly funky, irrefutably Indian rhythms ... let’s see the Red Hot Chili Peppers try that!'
It also got a five star review (Herald).
