1. Progressive rock band from the 1970s which sounded pretty much like Canterbury. The band format included keys, sax, drums and vocals. The biggest influence for ISLAND definitely seems to be Van der Graaf Generator, and the band certainly approaches high quality progressive rock from the darker end of the spectrum. Sometimes the influence of Gentle Giant gets very clear in their music.
2. Cypriotic group which represented Cyprus at Eurovision in 1981.
3. http://www.islandband.de Island was formed in Bonn, Germany, in autumn 2003 by Christian Kolf, Florian Toyka and Patrick Schroeder. In winter 2003/2004 we recorded the first album “Orakel” with Tim Steffens of Klabautamann at Flammenmeer Studios. Six months later the “Island EP” was recorded at the mysterious Studio 308 by ourselves, and mixed by Armin Rave at Sound-Sight Studios. After this recording Patrick Schroeder left the band to focus more on Centaurus-A. They are currently signed on Vendlus Records http://www.islandband.de
4. A Flemish ‘supergroup’ with the late folk alumni Wannes Van Der Velde en Dirk Van Esbroeck (Rum) who released a cd around the theme of Iceland.
