Thermal And A Quarter (TAAQ—that’s just an abbreviation, not their NASDAQ listing) is a groundbreaking band of musicians based in Bangalore, India.
Everybody thought they were just another band until they kicked some serious butt opening for Deep Purple in April 2001. TAAQ are about eight years old—older than some of your children and way older than most of your goldfish.
They have evidence and reason to believe they are a very good band and excellent entertainers—too bad if that doesn’t agree with you.
They hope their music helps change what you think. They used to be cloyingly modest about their achievements but based on healthy audience feedback and rousing support, they see no point in doing so any more.
However, they will remain humble and say that they have so far treated their fans to two albums—Thermal And A Quarter (2000) and Jupiter Café (2002)—and various other examples of their music, including a 40-minute seamless music video called Heart Cave Sphurana (2003).
They are currently offering Plan B, their brand new album, as a free-to-download-and-share offering on their website
