The Krayolas

The Krayolas are the last of the Chicano garage rockers -- genuine, Mexified, San Antonio rock ‘n’ roll stars. They achieved cult status as the Tex-Mex Beatles with songs about the drug wars ("Corrido Twelve Heads in a Bag," "Tormenta"), border politics ("1070," "Americano," "Home"), the 99-percent ("The Working People," "La Inundacion de Piedras Negras"), world peace ("Under One Roof," "We the People") and San Antonio life ("Fruteria," "Exit/Salida," "Alamo Dragway"). Of course, it doesn't hurt to have hits like "Catherine," ""Alex," "La Conquistadora," "Little Fox" and the powerpop remake of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend."" The Krayolas have released five critically-acclaimed albums since 2008 — “La Conquistadora,” “Long Leaf Pine (No Smack Gum),” “Americano,” “Tipsy Topsy Turvy" and "Tormenta." They are regulars on Sirius XM’s “Kick Out the Jams!” with Dave Marsh and “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” as well as on “Roots & Branches of Americana” with Ray Wylie Hubbard on KNBT-FM, “Anything Anything” with Rich Russo, KUT, KSYM-FM, KXTX-FM, KXTN-FM and KEDA. The Krayolas have been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” PRI’s “Whad’ Ya Know?” with Michael Feldman, NBC News, MTV and in Texas Monthly, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Village Voice, Pollstar, BMI World, Action Magazine and No Depression.
