‘It’s obvious why the Manchester clubs are jumping to this band’ The Guardian

Chris Illingworth piano
Nick Blacka bass
Rob Turner drums

Their groove-heavy, highly lyrical acoustic-electronica sound has made GoGo Penguin the band to watch on the UK’s contemporary jazz scene. Drawing on a heady brew of influences – from Squarepusher to Brian Eno, Debussy to John Cage, EST to Massive Attack – the Mancunian trio’s latest album, v.2.0, features skittering breakbeats, telepathic interplay and a taste for anthemic melody.
