Early Man from New York City was formed in the summer of 2003 when Mike Conte (guitar, vox) joined forces with Adam Bennati (drums). The two knew each other from years of playing in underground bands in Columbus, Ohio. In September of 2004, Dave Pajo of Slint joined the band (bass). Early Man have recently recorded a self titled 3-song EP with Monitor Records (www.monitorrecords.com) for release in April. The band will be in the studio again in early 2005 to record their first full length followed by extensive touring in both the US and Europe.
