Squartet is a three-piece instrumental band based in Rome, Italy, formed in May 2004, from two experienced noisejazzcore bands from Rome (Demode and Neo). Born from punk, corrupted by funk, de-evolved into noise, with a taste for be-bop, Squartets music is better served live, at high volume, so that your nerves are tensed and relaxed alternately; sung parts are missing and replaced by schizophrenic,restless guitar lines.
Since the beginning Squartet has been touring in Italy and near European countries, spreading around its ironic and catching up live set, sharing the stage with bands like Mike Watt & Secondmen, Karate, Melt Banana, Ron Anderson's Pak, Zu. Influences can be found in the '90s, from Ruins, Mr. Bungle, Naked City, NoMeansNo, from the '80s, The Residents, Fred Frith's Massacre, Snakefinger, back to Zappa's experimental music.
