Los Kung-Fu Monkeys
Everyone thinks of Tijuana as a good place to party but that's not what Tijuana is really about, Not by a long shot, you don't need to look deep to find a gem like Los Kung-Fu Monkeys. Drawing inspiration from US Punk & Ska bands such as the Voodoo Glow Skulls, Rancid, Suicide Machines, Sick Of It All, The clash, 7 Seconds, Bad Religion, the ramones plus others and from the surroundings of their border town, Los Kung-Fu Monkeys have created a sound all their own which boast dual singers, killer bass riffs and great keyboard harmonies. Los KFM as they are also known consist of Bernie & Paco on vocals, brothers Hassan (bass) & Tarek (guitar), Hecky on drums, Esteban on keyboards . The band has been a familiar face in the TJ punk scene ever since they started back in 1998, but since their first release "Rebuilding The World" dropped in 2001 the band has played at some of the most important venues in the U.S.A. including 3 dates in the 2005 Vans Warped Tour and played with the likes of Union 13, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Buck O'Nine, Suicide Machines, Youth Brigade, Mad Caddies, suicide machines,F-Minus, Finch, Pistol Grip, The Casualties, Guttermouth,citizen fish, The Slackers, The Al mighty MISFITS and legendary bands from Latin America such as Maldita Vecindad, Tijuana No!, Sekta-Core, King Chango, Dos Minutos and many others. Apart from that they have toured Mexico four times playing at all the important cities like Monterrey, Chihuahua, Guadalajara, Mexico City plus smaller cities like Hermosillo, San Luis Potosi, Mazatlan and many others.
Touring Mexico extensively is a feat that only bands with deep pockets have been able to do, but Los KFM have established such a loyal following that this has been possible for them.
