"Hector Saldana and his mates know as much about San Antonio, its special brand of rock 'n' roll and its history as Doug and Augie . . . 'Tipsy Topsy Turvy' is exactly what one would expect from a band once billed as the Tex-Mex Beatles: a West Side heat-seeking missile. Highlights include bilingual rocker '1070 (I'm Your Dirty Mexican),' which sounds like a Pied Piper call to La Raza; 'The Working People,' a brilliant, populist blue-collar soul tune right for our time; and the twanging homage, 'Gordon Lightfoot.'"

    Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”

    In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
