Led Bib

Event 43 Venue: Christ College Stage

Led Bib
One of the original torch-bearers for the revitalized young British jazz scene, Led Bib released their fifth album in February this year. Nominated for the 2009 Barclaycard Mercury Prize and described as a modern classic by the press (‘a hands-down triumph’, The Independent), this five-piece pride themselves on side-stepping convention with incendiary results, tearing apart the jazz world with their avant-jazz-euphoric-rock explosions of improvisation. 

‘A mix of darting Zappa-jazz hooks, sinister electronics, Ornette Colemanesque sax and hefty rock drumming...if Bring Your Own was intended to summarise where this energetic group has been and might still go, it succeeds admirably.’ The Guardian
