Formed in Santa Cruz, California, USA, this psychedelic indie rock outfit comprises Ethan Miller (Eureka, California, USA; guitar/vocals), Noel von Harmonson (electronic effects), Ben Flashman (b. Eureka, California, USA; bass), Ben Chasny (b. Eureka, California, USA; guitar) and Utrillo Kushner (b. Eureka, California, USA; drums). Founded in 1999 by childhood friends Miller and Flashman, with Harmonson and Kushner being recruited shortly after, Comets On Fire quickly made a name for themselves on the California music scene, securing a reputation for their intensely riotous live shows. They enjoyed a steady rise in profile, touring with Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. Their self-titled debut album, self-released in 2000, was a non-stop assault of shouted vocal lines and effects laden guitars. While not particularly accessible, it did provide the band a stepping-stone towards greater things, and was subsequently re-released by the Alternative Tentacles label.
