Description: "Power-pop-garage band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA and Tokyo, Japan. Test Patterns formed in 2006 when Yago, then in the Japanese garage band Gitogito Hustler, met Dan McNellie, formerly of The Radio Beats, while on a U.S. tour. They began playing together as a side project, living in Pittsburgh, and enlisted the help of bassist Matt Schor, and drummer Kevin Parent, touring the eastern United States, then Japan, and Europe."
