Comets On Fire

Comets on Fire are a band from Santa Cruz, California. The band was formed in 1999 by guitarist and vocalist Ethan Miller and longtime friend bassist Ben Flashman, who were seeking to create rhythmically and sonically intense music that paid no attention to categorizations. The band's self-titled debut was released in 2001 and eventually issued on the Alternative Tentacles label. Recorded on a four-track, it was a garage/psych freakout of intense if not epic proportions.

Los Sundowners

a person who refuses to be governed by the established rules or practices of any group; rebel; nonconformist. This is a day and age where the West effectively resides in a lawless society governed by the constant threat of violence and destruction. The majority of which is laid on by our 'leaders'. Our 'leaders' lie to our face and make a mockery of the term Democracy. It is only natural that people begin to break away from society in droves and form their own tribes that are based on fighting for truth and fighting against this dreaded machine.
