Caribou Island - 2009
A new set containing original songs is ready, bookings accepted at billdeg -at- aol.com.
What do the Space Vipers sound like?
The sound is described as an eclectic mixture of progressive and garage rock with multiple influences. A power trio with rock guitar, bass, drums, keys, theremin. Some say a mix of Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, the B-52's, and Radio Head. That's what some say. You should download an MP3 from the Semiphone CD below, to preview what our reunion show will sound like...
History:The Space Vipers were formed in 1997 as a three-piece Delaware rock band. The group played a number of shows in the late 90's and put out one official CD, Semiphone (MP3 links listed below), a "Space Rock Opera" before breaking up in early 2000. In 2003 Bill Degnan reformed the Space Vipers as the name of his solo project. See Tour Photo Semiphone CD cover Semiphone CD Reverse
