"The Krayolas from San Antonio, Texas have their own distinctive Tex-Mex style. Hardly typical of that genre, what they play is more Mexified rock 'n' roll than anything else and this is exemplified on 'Quiero Ser Tu Novio,' their Spanish language cover of the Ramones' 'I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend' . . . What work best are unadulterated Mexican-flavored corridos like 'Twelve Heads in a Bag,' a cool and understated telling of a grisly drugs cartel massacre. 'Tony Tormenta' is another chilling cartel ballad, an affecting song that documents the horror of the internecine drug wars of the Mexican borderland."

    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.
