Born out of the snake pit of Leeds house parties, Vipertime draws on the mesmeric forms and harmonies of 1970s ethio-jazz before refracting this influence though post-punk, 60s garage, free jazz and afrobeat to create potent improvised music for the dancefloor.
After forming as a free improvising group in early 2018 the band recorded their first EP All Our Heroes Are Dead, which received radio play on BBC 3, Worldwide FM and BBC Introducing. By the end of the year the band had settled on a permanent line up featuring members of Roller Trio, WorldService Project, Mansion of Snakes, KOG & The Zongo Brigade and Wandering Monster.
