Galaga


San Francisco based indie pop duo featuring Andre Vogel on guitar/vocals and Peter Park on drums/vocals.. Galaga existed for a decade, but barely released anything in that time. They started out promisingly enough, releasing the excellent "Winter" single in 1992 on their own Spider Records label. The track garnered some radio play in England on the Gary Crowley show and in America on CMJ. The band initially formed in 1991 as a four piece with Matt Ayotte on drums, Dave Lampton on Guitar, Peter Park on Bass, and Andre Vogel on Guitar. Read more on Last.fm

They started out promisingly enough, releasing the excellent "Winter" single in 1992 on their own Spider Records label. The track garnered some radio play in England on the Gary Crowley show and in America on CMJ. The band initially formed in 1991 as a four piece with Matt Ayotte on drums, Dave Lampton on Guitar, Peter Park on Bass, and Andre Vogel on Guitar.

The latter two sang vocals on "Winter," an excellent, driving slice of early '90s indie rock. Afterwards, they gained notoriety as a duo, with just Vogel and Park remaining, with Park moving to to Drums. Vogel, like many others at the time, was experimenting with different tunings and setups for his guitar. "I was heavily influenced by Sonic Youth, tweeking tunings," he said. "So for 'Winter' I just doubled the stings in unison.

It sounded like a sitar." Later, in 1997, the band released a single on the Noise Pop label that included "Arilang," a trippy melding of Hendrix and Kevin Shields that is featured on the Tiny Idols, Vol. 2 CD. Galaga called it quits in 2000. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
