Magic Hour were an American psychedelic rock band from greater Boston, Massachusetts, USA and were made up of former Crystalized Movements member Wayne Rogers and Kate Biggar and former Galaxie 500 members Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang.

History[edit]

In 1993 Damon and Naomi were contacted by Wayne and Kate asking them if they'd like to replace the recently departed Crystalized Movements rhythm section, after the first rehearsal it was decided they should form a new band rather than carrying on as Crystalized Movements[1]

They went on to record three albums and toured Europe and the US before splitting up in 1996, Damon & Naomi returned to working as a duo, while Wayne and Kate formed Major Stars. The four members were persuaded to reform for a one-off performance at the first Terrastock festival in 1997. They also reformed for the fourth Terrastock festival where they performed as Children of the Rainbow a tribute to the band MU.[2]
