Profile Formely known as Galaxy, Gulliver was a short lived Los Angeles based rock band formed in the late 1978, by talented multi-instrumentalist David Garron and guitarist Joe Weider who has previously being part of  Eric Burdon’s Animals and Family among others. The band play symphonic rock combined with pomp and pop elements, having easygoing guitar riffs, clean production, vocal harmonies and touchy tunes.

In 1979 via Columbia Records the band’s first album came out titled “Ridin’ the Wind” with the single “Wonder of It All”, while the album produced By Richie Wise, short enough after ending his work with the the two first albums of Kiss. No loud guitars on this one. Kind of Pop Pomp. If I do have to make a comparing… I might say Reo Speedwagon from Hi In-fidelity and after. With a touch of Styx/Dennis De Young here and there… without touching the classic stuff made by those two mentioned bands. Quite enjoyable anyway and worth a try if you find it…
