scapa flow

Shades of Emerson Lake & Palmer and Jethro Tull (sort of), on some golden pastoral folk trek... but played out by a Swedish (or Finnish), 80's band called Scapa Flow. Honestly this is not something i personally discovered, i dont even own the record... yet! In fact i saw this up on facebook or something, was curious and pursued it further. The Scapa Flow is a body of water where Vikings once harboured, somewhere in the Orkney Islands of Scotland. Knowing this goes some way to explaining what an 80's band were doing traversing these particular waters at that particular time...kind of... Being one third hippy, i just love this.... the title track from their 1980 album.. prog not prog on a Monday night then.
