Galliano was a London-based acid jazz group, which started in 1988. The group was the first signing to Eddie Piller and Gilles Peterson's Acid Jazz record label. The original members were Rob Gallagher (vocals), Constantine Weir (vocals), Michael Snaith (The Vibe Controller) and Crispin Robinson (percussion). Other important members included Valerie Etienne, who participated in the recording of all their CDs, along with other musicians such as Mick Talbot on keyboards, Crispin Taylor on drums Ernie McKone on bass guitar, Mark Vandergucht guitar and Steve Ameedee, otherwise known as Uncle Big Man (dancer).
Galliano achieved the peak of its success in 1994 with The Plot Thickens which peaked at number seven in the UK album chart.
In 1997, Gallagher broke Galliano up, and pursued other musical projects, Two Banks of Four and Earl Zinger (the reggae singer).
