There is more than one band named Parka. 1. Parka are a Scottish indie-electro-dance-pop band from Glasgow, now based in Whitchapel, London. They formed in Feb 2005 when singer/guitarist Matty Thompson grew tired of his studies and decided to make a band, by finding drummer, Neil Johnson, bassist Ian Alexander, keyboardist Mark Hedges and saxaphonist Bob. In September 2006 they released their debut single Disco Dancer, complete with balloon video, through the 7" label Worst Case Scenario.
