Los Chicos have been together for 18 years now. They've built through sweat and parties a country-punk-rock-soul-garage-gospel extra tight machine full of Stiff's pub fun madness that has blown out venues all over the world.
Their first single came out in 2002, followed the next year by the LP Shakin & Prayin. Then they recorded Fat Spark in 2005 for H-Records. In 2007 they released Launching Rockets with Dirty Water Records. Followed by the single We Sound Amazing But We Look Like Shit in 2009 and the LP of the same name in 2010, both of them on Dirty Water. In The Age of Stupidity came out in 2012 also on Dirty Water Records. Folc Records joined Dirty Water to release Rockpile of Shit in 2016 and El Segell del Primavera is their new label for 2018 with the critically acclaimed By Medical Prescription, a Crypt sound fuelled beer tank sounding rougher with go for broke all around performances that gets them even higher than ever before.
This 5 headed rock and roll kangaroo has spread the word of rock'n'roll all over the world, conquering bars, pubs, venues and festivals in Australia (4 succesful tours so far!), UK, Italy, France, Holland, Germany and anywhere in the spanish territory you can think about while you drink 5 litres of sangria. On stage they are like a cross between Dr. Feelgood, New Bomb Turks, Radio Birdman and Mojo Nixon, all accelerated with a punk soul that blesses this loco little rascals firing sweat and a strong respect for rock and roll and fun delivered by the amazing never seen before killer twin-brother-twin-guitar attack a la Pirates mixed with the Saints, surrounded by a tremendous earthquake of a rhythm section crazily executed by a killer bass firing gun and a weirdo haired madman. Everything in the package is extremely fired up by a frontman who seems to fly through the venue like a cross between Iggy Pop and Rob Younger in the body of a two headed monster called Springsteen-Brilleaux. This great party defenders could be like a mix between Black Flag and the Shananas on Otis Redding with a Texas Punk Garage band with their gear about to explode!!! And all this for the love of bringing PURE JOY to the audience. Which they DO! ALWAYS!
They have worked regularly with godfather of rauncho garage punk, Lord Mike Mariconda and shared stages with The Sonics, Radio Birdman, Roy Loney, Johnny Casino, Paul Collins, Southern Culture On The Skids, The New Christs, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Eddie & the Hot Rods, King Khan, Barrence Whitfield, Hi-Risers, Daddy Long Legs, and a lot of great bands. All of them are since then great fans and friends of the band. If so many people with that kind of musical background have set their eyes on them, they must be RIGHT!!
Get ready to set your shoes on fire! Los Chicos are in town!!!
