Though their music began as free-form improvisation incorporating analog synths, upright bass, guitar and dance beats, it progressed into more structured songs by the time K.O.'s boss, Calvin Johnson of K Records, invited them to record an album at K's studio. The album, 1998's Chotto Matte A Moment! mixed drum-n-bass with the immediacy of lo-fi and punk; the duality of their sound found them sharing the bill with a wide array of acts, including Unwound, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips and Hovercraft. IQU spent 1999 touring and recording; that summer they released a collaboration with performance artist/filmmaker Miranda July, Girls on Dates.

Mid-2000 saw the release of the full-length Teenage Dream. Four years later, IQU returned with Sun Q, which opted for a bigger, more polished sound. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
