Louise Quinn, of Glasgow combo A Band Called Quinn, provides the basis for a sitcom character played by Ana Matronic out of The Scissor Sisters.

The New York-based sitcom Grossmalerman was conceived by American performance artist, painter, and singer-songwriter Guy Richards Smit, who with band Maxi Geil! & PlayColt played with A Band Called Quinn at Club Tromolo in Glasgow several years ago. Following a Kickstarter campaign, filming of the TV series is going ahead with Ana Matronic playing the part of a gallerist called Louise – Smit having initilly expressed an interest in Louise Qunn taking on the eponymous role.

A Band Called Quinn are currently performing at Summerhall at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in ‘Biding Time (Remix)‘.
