The Vikings beat Columbus to America. If only they stayed..,
This review is from: Lucky Leif And The Longships (Audio CD)
"Leif the Lucky, son of Erik the Red, discovered America five centuries before Christopher Columbus. Had the Viking's lines of communication with their home bases been stronger would history might have developed differently in several ways."
Musically it certainly comes from a different vein than "Captain Lockheed", Produced by Eno it satirises the Beach Boys with "The Lay of the Surfers" and gives Country and Western a good ribbing with "Moonshine in the Mountains".
If all you want is a heavy rock album, look elsewhere. It's a pure Bob Calvert view on Prohibition in America, subtler in its jabs to the establishment, but an excellent piece of work non-the less.
