The Russian post-punk band THE QUINSY was formed at the very beginning of XXI century by Vladimir 4.44 Tkebuchava. The band started performing in several Saint-Petersburg underground clubs, such as RED CLUB. But mostly, there were only small electrowave underground parties, as back then the band sound was close to electronic one.
In 2005 the Quinsy experienced a lot of hardships and was nearly at the end, but eventually the new members and new sound contributed to the band’s complete revival. The very first newborn performance was set in 2007. The Quinsy frequently participated in Saint-Petersburg gothic-festivals and other rock-shows. From that time, the sound of the band was changed completely to rock, post-punk, gothic and psychedelic.
