Continuing in the tradition of Tennessee-based garage revivalists like Jack Oblivian and Jay Reatard, Pujol serves up lo-fi, high-energy raw rock & roll at a prolific rate. Growing up in the small town of Tullahoma and dissatisfied with the pattern of starting bands that later ran out of steam or broke up, singer/guitarist Daniel Pujol formed the group in 2009 with the idea of playing with whoever was available when he had new songs on hand in order to keep the sound fresh and forward-moving. This approach proved to be very effective, as he released a pair of 7"s for the JEFF the Brotherhood-affiliated label Infinity Cat that year, followed in 2010 by a 12" live EP for Jack White's label, Third Man. His full-length debut, X File on Main Street, arrived in 2011, along with a handful of 7"s and his most high-profile release yet, the Nasty, Brutish, and Short EP for the Saddle Creek label — all told, Pujol offered ten releases between 2009 and 2011. The revolving-door nature of the band often found Pujol collaborating with musicians from the Nashville indie scene, but for a fall 2011 tour with Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, he was joined by Police drummer turned film/TV composer Stewart Copeland and Mitch Jones (best known for playing bass with American Idol winner Taylor Hicks). In spring 2012, Pujol offered his second studio album, United States of Being, on Saddle Creek. The Kludge LP followedin May 2014.
