'Corrido Twelve Heads in a Bag' plants Dylan in the middle of Mexico's drug war, which gives way to the West Side Horns colliding with a Billy Gibbons riff on 'So Happy.' The pop punch of 'A-Frame' goes ballistic on Louie Bustos' sax solo, while Augie Meyers' Vox organ turns up on his own Sir Douglas Quintet obscurity, 'I Wanna Fall in Love Again,' into a groovy country shuffle."<

    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.”
