Victor Peraino

Victor Peraino and the new Kingdom Come extend to you a cosmic greeting...

A native of Detroit (the “Motor City”), Victor’s initiation into the music scene was as a drummer for the UP, a sister band of the legendary MC5, both managed by John Sinclair. The gigs at Detroit’s Grande Ballroom were happening and the UP played an important part of that scene as support for such acts as The Stooges, Cream, Amboy Dukes, Janis Joplin, and Soft Machine.

 The UP Gary Rasmussen,Victor Peraino, Frank Bach, Bob Rasmussen

Victor made his departure from the UP and traveled to England in the 70s. As fate would have it, he met Arthur Brown..

Live Performance: Motor City Music Factory 2013

Victor began touring with Arthur across Europe. Their stage performances and theatrics, in addition to their musical collaborations with such artists as Genesis, Eno, Bob Calvert, Hawkwind, and Edgar Broughton, are now considered legendary. This era of the psychedelic/progressive scene is regarded by many as its Stellar Age.

In the 70's they recorded on Polydor Records in England. Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come "Journey" was critically acclaimed as a landmark, in the music industry the first recording to feature a drum machine.


Victor played keyboards. mellotron. moog synthesizer, vcs3, theremin & vocals on this ground-breaking album. He also worked with such notable artists as Queen, Manfred Mann, Dave Edmunds, Brian Eno, Daevid Allen of Gong, Hawkwind and The Edgar Broughton Band.

 Victor Peraino and Arthur Brown

After Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come disintegrated following the release of the wonderful "Journey",Album US keyboard player Victor Peraino retained the name, releasing No Man's Land in '75 under the name Victor Peraino's Kingdom Come, reissued by Black Widow in 2010.

After years, Victor and Arthur decided to collaborate again, resurrecting the project Kingdom Come. In this new musical adventure and CD "Journey In Time" reproduce in a new guise, some of the best songs included in "No Man's Land" (Demon of Love, Sun Sets Sail, Empires of Steel).

They take up the theme of the wonderful "Time Captives" from "Journey" turning it into a cross-section sidereal enriched by the magnificence of space keyboards, revitalize ina progressive key two old classics like "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and "I Put a Spell On You "...

but they also offer some brand new compositions (We Only Come to Help You, Future, the title track, Walk with Angels) deploying an odyssey of lovely sounds, underpinned by the omnipresent as ever presence of Mellotron, Moog, VCS3, in an uninterrupted flow of emotions.
