What people are saying about IQ

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Launch gig for new album a great success First time I’ve seen IQ. Think I’ve missed out. One of the original neo-prog bands from the early 80s along with Marillion, Pallas, Pendragon. Still playing engaging mix of big synth, crunchy guitar & passionate vocals. BTW they hate the neo-prog label!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IQ Great show again, introducing new material must be risky but IQ took it in their stride mixing new material with favourites. Truly love this band still surprises me that they haven’t appealed to a wider audience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gig of the year IQ never fail to put on an absolutely briliant show, their annual Christmas gig has become somewhat of a tradition for me and my friends, an outstanding performance from the band which absolutely wowed the crowd and in such a good venue, if prog is your thing then if you don't already know IQ then you should check them out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bloody marvellous I look forward to this next year from the minute the gig finishes. It’s a magical experience, these guys are superb musicians, I love their music and love their songs. Last year was super tight, this year a bit laid back. Ever is a super album, I loved hearing it live. IQ never take it too seriously, and the inclusion of mama mia was great. A hard song to play, but top Marks. Nice venue despite being in the champagne socialist republic of Islington!!! I have literally worn to death the free cd they gave away in 2017, and looking forward to lots of IQ in my Christmas gifts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IQ are my favourite live band. It was freezing cold outside but the temperature soon rose when IQ came on stage. They are the premier Prog Rock band on the circuit and this is always exemplified by their dynamic renditions of their own compositions. The result being a true rendition of their album recordings and yet rewarding the listener with an exciting live experience which adds up to much more than that which is heard through the recorded medium. Notable songs were; 'Frequency' which includes the most exciting finale, and 'Closer', because it includes a very poignant love motif which is where IQ excel above others. They have mastered the art of writing beautiful love songs that are complimented by the progressive rock structure that accompanies them. They also have a great sense of humour. I've seen them play Status Quo songs in the encore, but this time they did their own rendition of 'Mamma Mia' by Abba!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brooding, frequently uplifting and stretching into epic territory Robin 2, a venue situated in the West Midlands and operating for the past 20 years, was tonight hosting IQ whose current lineup contains four of the five members who appeared on their first vinyl release: 'Tales from the Lush Attic' which came out all the way back in 1983. IQ, which has had little or no commercial success during its long span, occupies a very important position in the progressive rock pantheon and as the last two albums: 'Frequency' and 'Road of Bones' illustrate is not a band content to rest on its laurels. A large audience, which included arch fan David who was invited on stage and presented with a T-shirt to mark the 99th time he had seen the band live, were treated to renditions of all the songs that appeared on 1993 release 'Ever' as well as three tracks from the aforementioned Road of Bones. A new song 'Mome' which might be a work in progress, but sounds like a finished product to these ears followed by the title track from Road of Bones in which majesty and menace blend so seamlessly were the high point of the evening from my perspective, but there was plenty more to satisfy both the long-term fan and recent convert such as myself. The band is a talented bunch of musicians led by the peerless guitar stylings of Mike Holmes who while being an assertive presence avoids being overindulgent and allows the other players: bassist Tim Esau, drummer Paul Cook and keyboard player Neil Durant to breathe and show their wares. Lead singer Peter Nicholls, has a mellow voice and there were times when the song could have done with the vocals being pitched on a more drastic level. However, there is no doubting his capacity as a lyricist, the manner in which he interacts with the audience between songs and the way he deftly fades out of view during the instrumental passages. Arresting and haunting images projected on to screens at the back of stage gave the performance an added dimension and were important for a band which in my opinion does not have a strong visual presence. A good presentation from a band with an uncompromising vision, whose music blends simple structures with more complex arrangements and who inspire tremendous devotion from a loyal fanbase.
