Viking Galaxy 13th Note gig

Viking Galaxy played their gig at the 13th Note Glasgow to an enthusiastic crowd!  They were so much fun and I Ioved the vibrant orange and their Viking space outfits! !  Their sound is packed with fantasy, high energy and drama. They are a band of Viking explorers from outer space who plunder, pillage and raid far away planets! 
William Hill is such a cool front man - my son Ross Keightley is the bass player, Mathew Brown on keys, Mike Parkin on guitar, Andrew Scott on drums. The band has played successful shows at Bannermans Edinburgh where fans turned up in Viking gear! Three of the members are long time school mates and they have all played in  other bands.

Viking Galaxy Nice n Sleazy's Glasgow 11th Dec 2010

This is  a young band having fun with it all. Behind the scenes you sense that thought and care has gone into their music. The band say they are fans of Bach, Earth Wind and Fire, and metal band Mastodon and that they draw from classical, folk and metal for their music - which all makes me think genre matters not at all. 

Viking Galaxy Set list. The Shaft of Agony, The Hall of the Slain, Space Chariots, Galactic Plunder, The Sickle of Hate. 
Band members - Liam Hill (vocals) Matthew Brown (keys), Ross Keightley (bass), Mike Parkins (guitar) and  Andrew Scott (drums).  
The band appeared on stage in their helmets and wigs. Liam is a strikingly tall, engrossing and entertaining front man and he was cool in a leather waistcoat and fur top. They have been writing and rehearsing for several years and it was clear the boys were high about their first gig.
