Trumfio was also the frontman and songwriter for 90's New Wave revivalist Pulsars who have reached cult status among many die hard Indie Electronic fans. The band includes Trumfio's long time production partner Celso A. Estrada (Islands, The Rentals, Beat Club, White Dove) on guitar/programs, drummer Michael Sanger (JUAREZ, Dead Western Plains, These Machines Are Winning) and electro clash darlings Soviet frontman and noted film composer Keith Ruggiero on synths. Early shows have proven a golden combination. Including a packed Record Store Day performance in LA, sold out shows at NYC's Bowery Ballroom in late 2015 and the launch of Damaged Disco performances in DTLA featuring DJ sets and live performances by the group.
