 The Story: 

The Crooked Axis String Quartet was formed in early 2010 as a side-project featuring members of Number Nine Experiment, Zamal Bash, and Red Haze. In 2011, the band shorten its name to The Crooked Axis. (

They record their first album: "Strange Girl" in August 2011 (made of auto-produced demos, released on their own indie music label "1D"). (
