Maserati's reputation varies depending on who you ask: They are either one of dance music's most viscerally addictive live performers, or underground rock's most ingenious hybrid of U2's guitar heroics, Pink Floyd's arena-ready psych rock, and Daft Punk's head-slamming, club-burning rhythms.
Maserati formed in January 2000 and in 2001 self-released their debut EP, 37:29:24. They released a full-length, The Language of Cities, onKindercore Records in 2002. In 2003, they released the "Confines of Heat" split EP/DVD (also on Kindercore Records) with Gainesville, FL's The Mercury Program.
After a Japan tour in 2004, drummer Phil Horan left the group. Matt Cherry also left the group temporarily, replaced by Tristan Wraight. They released a 7" and a split CD with Cinemechanica and We Versus the Shark on Hello Sir Records in 2004.
In early 2005, Matt Cherry re-joined the band and Jerry Fuchs stepped in on drums. The group began pursuing more of a psychedelic andspace rock-influenced sound and signed with Temporary Residence in 2007, releasing the full-length Inventions for the New Season. In 2008 they issued a 12" featuring remixes of songs from Inventions for the New Season by Thee Loving Hand and Justin Van Der Volgen. They followed this with a split LP with Zombi in early 2009, and a rarities collection, Passages, on Temporary Residence later that same year.
On November 8, 2009, at around 1am, Fuchs fell down an elevator shaft to his death in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. ABC reported that he "was trying to jump out of a broken elevator when a piece of his clothing caught on something". The drummer was attending an invite-only party to raise funds to send poor children to school in India  He was 34 years old.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maserati_(band)
