Kinky – Barracuda


kinkylive

Kinky is a five member band from Monterrey, Mexico which consists of members Gilberto Cerezo, Ulises Lozano, Carlos Chairez, Omar Gongora, and Cesar Pliego.

Their music is a mixture of rock, dance, and techno, but the Latin influence pours through each song. They sing mostly in Spanish but some of their songs contain lyrics in English. They are signed with Sonic360 Records.

In the summer of 2002 they joined Cake, De La Soul, Flaming Lips, Hackensaw Boys, and Modest Mouse on the Unlimited Sunshine Tour in the U.S… “Mas”, from their self-titled debut, was used in commercials for the NBC Mexican mafia mini-series Kingpin, and Nissan.

On September 5, 2006, Kinky reappeared with reina, which contains great songs such as “León”, and “una línea de luz”. Kinky has toured in Mexico and the USA with bands such as Muse, Beck, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Shins; and were the principal attraction of a massive gig with The Donnas and rooney. [last.fm]

150_rollingstoneRolling Stone :: 3 stars (out of 5)

Four albums in, these Mexican electro rockers remain ruthlessly consistent in both ends (party hearty!) and means (dance beats, as many, and as booming, as possible). At Kinky’s ferocious live shows, it’s a winning formula…
