GIG & DOC_ The Parkinsons (Victor Torpedo)


In 2000, Victor Torpedo leaves Coimbra, moves to London with Pedro Chau and forms The Parkinsons. Afonso Pinto and Chris Low would join them in this musical venture and soon begin to revolutionize the rock scene in London. They play at the Reading Festival in 2001 and become popular for their live chaotic irreverence. Somewhere between the concert frenzy, the parties and some despised jobs, they launch their first album, in 2002, named A Long Way to Nowhere, which received favourable reviews from English critics. Two years later, they record New Wave, and in 2005, they return to their origins and edit Down with the Old World, by Rastilho music label. Later, in 2012, they return to record the album Back To Life. The Parkinsons have a musical career which is mostly divided between Portugal and the United Kingdom. They are a cult band, considered by many, as one of the best punk rock bands that have emerged in the British musical scene at the onset of the 20th Century. They are restless, demanding and very noisy. They are unique. Today, The Parkinsons are Afonso Pinto – Voice; Victor Torpedo – Guitar; Pedro Chau – Bass; Paula Nozzari – Drums.
