XANGâ??s story began in september 1995 with the first Vincent and Manuâ??s meeting.

After a failure with a previous band, Manu played drums in a jazz-rock band where Vincent was the keyboard player. The feeling between them was good and they decided to create their own band. Vincentâ??s brother, Matthieu, joined them a few weeks later as a bass guitar player. Then, a huge quantity of guitar players tried to join the band but without results. Finally Antoine arrived in august 1997 to play guitars.

Meanwhile a home made demo tape recorded during a rehearsal in october 1996, caused many positive reactions. This demo tape gave them the opportunity to play at CORBIGNYâ??s PROGLIVE in august 1998.

At this event, they met Konny EISENRING and Patrick BECKER from Switzerland.

Konny and Patrick decided to create a new record label: GALILEO RECORDS, to promote and co-produce the future XANG CD.

The last important date is the support act of XANG in november 1998 at the occasion of ARENAâ??s show in the beautiful old cinema "LE SPLENDID" in LILLE (north of France).
