Crash City Saints hail from Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Highlighted by the contribution of Cocteau Twins’ Simon Raymonde, their newest album Are You Free? on Saint Marie Records, is something of a Shoegaze Quadrophenia, telling the (autobiographical) story of a teenager growing up in a dead-end small town in the early 90s. And finding sort of a path to salvation by listening to bands like My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Galaxie 500, and the whole Madchester scene.
