    Porter was formed in May 2004. At the beginning they were an instrumental band, until Mussgo joined the band that same year. They then recorded the EP Donde los Ponys Pastan, with 3er piso records, a Mexican indie record label. This EP was produced by Alejandro Pérez Orco (member of Azul Violeta) and includes seven songs, among which are: "No te Encuentro" ("I don't find you"), "Girl", "Daphne", "Bipolar" and their most famous song "Espiral". There are also two instrumental songs in this EP called "Interlude" and "Interlude Complicado". Later that year, Porter made it to the semi-finals of an indie rock band contest called 0-music, with the song "No te Encuentro".

    On September 3, 2006, they served as the opening act for The Strokes at the Arena VFG in Guadalajara.

    Porter performed on the 2007 Vive Latino festival, where the first copies of their debut album, Atemahawke were available. The album went on sale on May 15, 2007.

    Porter also performed for the 1st time outside of Mexico in Hollywood, California at Al Borde's Rock N' Bliss concert on October 12, 2007 and, in 2008, at the Coachella Festival.[4]

    Their music has been classified as alternative, indie, and experimental. However, lyrics often explore surrealist and space rock themes combining English and Spanish languages. As an example, the 2007 track "Xoloitzcuintle Chicloso" contains Spanish words from Nahuatl (the title comes from xoloitzcuintli, a kind of dog, and tzictli, gum, gummy dog); the whole story relies on a cat-alike dressed kid (Vega) and a talking dog (Chicloso). On the other hand, "Host of a Ghost" and "Girl" were written completely in English.

    After a hiatus and various rumors of disbanding, they dissolved after playing the [Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival] in Indio, California on 2008.
