Los Chicos have been blasting rock and roll joy for 15 years now. Their mix of pub-rock-punk and country-gospel-punk-soul has blown out so many stages all over the world, conquering every bar, venue and festival stage they've stepped onto. As always, they are hungry and awaiting their moment to explode through their amps. After their fourth Australian tour, Boogie Festival and stages like the Tote have witnessed the crazy revolution of guitars, flip flops and rock and roll community that these boys deliver live. And they always deliver!
Their first single came out in 2002, followed the next year by the album Shakin' & Prayin'. Then they recorded Fat Spark in 2005 for H-Records. In 2007 they released Launching Rockets through Dirty Water Records and Rock Is Pain records. Then there was the single 'We Sound Amazing But We Look Like Shit' in 2009 (based upon a true story) and the LP of the same name in 2010, both of them on Dirty Water. Then, in 2013, they released In The Age Of Stupidity, again on Dirty Water, and produced, like the previous two albums, by Mike Mariconda (New Bomb Turks, Raunch Hands, Devil Dogs).
They've shared the stage with Mudhoney, Southern Culture on the Skids, King Khan, The Sonics, Johnny Casino, Soundtrack of our Lives, Redd Kross, Cosmic Psychos, Spencer P Jones, The New Christs, The Young Fresh Fellows, The Meanies, Barrence Whitfield, Hi-Risers, Eddie And The Hot Rods, Roy Loney, and so many other greats that have fallen into the big rock and roll family this band gathers.
So get ready for a band that will lift you up, shake you endlessly and set your feet on fire while you jump and swing in the ultimate rock and roll rocket journey. It's Los Chicos party time again!
The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club's name is derived from The Standells' 1966 hit 'Dirty Water' which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers (from the Cramps), The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 220.127.116.11's, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original '60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
