MAGIK MARKERS  (hartford, usa.)
experimental rockers the MAGIK MARKERS formed in hartford, ct, in 2001, featuring guitarist/vocalist elisa ambrogio, drummer pete nolan, and bassist leah quimby. Inspired by no wave and hardcore, the magik markers crafted a free-rocking sound that made the most of their stream-of-consciousness approach. the band made cd-rs available at its shows and eventually caught the ear of thurston moore, who invited the group to play on SONIC YOUTH's 2004 american tour.

they moved to DRAG CITY for 2009's "balf quarry", which found the band moving in a subdued but eclectic direction - this was followed up in 2013 with "surrender to the fantasy".
