"Psych-garage-noise purveyors Awesome Color coalesced after Michigan skater/musos Michael Troutman and Allison Busch hooked up with fellow Great Lake State expat Derek Stanton in Brooklyn, NY, in 2004. Tired of the same old, same old that was passing for NYC underground punk at the time, the trio set out to inject a little Detroit rock know-how into the scene. Succeeding marvelously at channeling the grit and free abandon of the Stooges and MC5 into a propulsive, riff-based, Black Sabbath-informed mule-kick of a live show, the group soon caught the ear of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore who wasted no time in snatching up the band for his Ecstatic Peace! label. Their self-titled debut hit the racks in 2006 and was followed up by Electric Aborigines in 2008. The wake of that second release found the group touring the world in support of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. In 2010, the band plans to release Massa Hypnos on Ecstatic Peace! and jump back in the minivan to play every rock club, basement, and skate park they can, leaving a trail of broken guitars and pizza crusts from Michigan to Mars."
