THe Littlest Viking
Two piece prog/punk band from Whittier, CA.
THE LITTLEST VIKING IS BASICALLY the bastard musical lovechild of Don Caballero, Piglet, American Football, Braid, and Hot Snakes. Tambourines, ridiculous drum fills, wicked tapping, hoarse shouting, noise freakouts, salsa beats and the occasional Prince sample are a staple of any TLV live show.
Ruben Jessie Cortez: Guitars, crooning
Christopher Patrick Gregory: Drums, shouting
