Five friends from Sao Paulo, Brazil, decide to play and form a band after they realize a common interest in the bands from the 60s (Love and The Byrds) and 90s british guitar bands (My Bloody Valentine, Blur, Ride, Slowdive, etc...). After many rehearsals the first songs were conjured up and in July 1994 the current line-up was cemented. The band went to studio in order to record their first demo tape entitled Pull My Daisy featuring six tracks.
Support and many compliments encouraged Old Magic Pallas to start shooting a video-clip that had its first appearance on MTV in September 1995 on a program named Lado B (the brazilian version of 120 minutes).
Then they had six of their songs included in a compilation called Old Moon Whale on Artifact Records and are currently working on their first album to be released soon.
Guitars that fuse psychedelia, noise and pop melodies, a full-throated resonant bass, drums tailor made for the band's acidic dimension and Chris' voice, a ticket to heaven, that has touched everyone who listened to the shattering sounds of Old Magic Pallas.
