"Babasónicos show a retrospective"

...But Monterrey's 60 Tigres were the opening highlight, with a vigorous dance-punk-disco-funk feel from wrangling bass, percussive flourishes and edgy performance energy that felt like a Gang of Four remix, pulling fans onstage for an impromptu thrash-vogue session. - Chicago Tribune


"Show Review: BABASONICOS at Congress Theater"

60 Tigres, from Mexico, did an amazing job with their disco-rock, psychedlic funk music. They had performed the night before at Cobra Lounge for Remezcla's "La Otra Puerta Series" and were on a roll in acquiring new fans across our city. The boys, hailing from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, have seen a huge increase in their fan base since their first visit to Chicago. Word of mouth promotion works wonders when you make such an impressive impact on the crowd before you. Their off-stage handling of fans was also impressive as they were ready and willing to take photos, give autographs and just hang out with the dozens of kids swarming around them. - Enchufate


"60 Tigres (Monterrey, N.L.)"

Sin lugar a dudas, Monterrey sigue siendo una urbe fructífera, musicalmente hablando, con propuestas nuevas que, como sucede en todo México, luchan y se esfuerzan por despuntar en el tan peleado escenario del rock.

60 Tigres es una de esas bandas que, con sólo tres años de formación, han logrado crear una propuesta alejada de lo que el mainstream musical propone, para dar pie a una fusión de ritmos extremadamente sabrosones, donde el funk, la música latina, rock, la psicodelia y hasta el punk, se coquetean para resultar en una cadencia enérgica y seductora.

Este año lanzaron “Los Emigrantes”, su segunda producción, álbum en el que la banda se encargó de la grabación y la producción, mezclado y post-producido por Memo Guerra en Londres y masterizado por Marco Moreno en el Distrito Federal. Anteriormente, grabaron un EP titulado “América”.

Las canciones de 60 Tigres están impregnadas de sensualidad y pasión, envueltas en una atmósfera innegablemente retro, lo que se reconoce y hasta agradece, al apostar por una fusión de ritmos que, sin ser la típica música para el relajo, funcionaría a la perfección para una fiesta en la que buscas un poco de cerveza, sudor y actividad cuerpo con cuerpo.

60 Tigres ha pisado escenarios nacionales en ciudades como el Distrito Federal, Cuernavaca, Chihuahua, Ciudad Juárez, Torreón y Monterrey; en el extranjero se han presentado en Los Ángeles, San Diego, Chicago, San Antonio y Austin, en la reciente edición del festival musical/ciclo de conferencias “SXSW 2008”. Junior Boys, Babasónicos, The Whitest Boy Alive y Delorean son algunas de las bandas con las que han compartido escenario.

Suena a: Pasear arriba de un crucero en el atardecer, con un coctelito frío y muy fancy, tumbado en un camastro y bien tostado por el sol.

Recomendable si te gusta: Los Amigos Invisibles, Kinky, The Pinker Tones, y la onda retro/psicodélica/funketera moderada.

Escucha: Los Emigrantes, El Arma Secreta y Dentro de mi Cuerpo.

"After Silence by Martin De Leon"

For new bands, shopping for a label sucks. Every month I'll try and give shine to at least on unsigned producer or band. 60 Tigres are a synth-punk group from Monterrey, Mexico and are touring behind terrific Los Emigrantes CD-R. DFA, if you're reading this, a moustache-sporting Juan MacLean can't be that bad, right?

"Los Emigrantes"

The Monterrey representatives of disco-punk (a surprisingly shocking concept for both, punk and disco fans) present their new complete album, in which they show why it’s them who point direction of the rhythm on the dance floors of Northern Mexico. - Daniel RT

"California Tour"

Although not easy to define, the psychedelic, funk-punk dance beats that Spanglish Alternativo quintet out of Monterrey Mexico creates is nothing less vibrant, energetic, catchy and very, very now. While some music lovers categorize them in the ranks of Zoe, Babasonicos, Los Amigos Invisibles with European twist others like my self are just glad they exist. - Press


"60 Tigres"

Con tracks energéticos y un potente show en vivo este grupo cuenta con todos los elementos para convertirse en una gran banda de rock.

Al indagar brevemente en la escena musical independiente de Monterrey nos damos cuenta al instante que 60 Tigres es una de las bandas con más empuje. Su música rocusta, compuesta por funk, disco, punk, bossa nova, psychedelic, ritmos latinos y tintes electrónicos, es perefecta para bailarse en un bar rectangular de paredes forradas con papel-tapiz-de-madera.... - Page Magazine

Bio

60 Tigres begun in the year 2005 as a band that wanted to conquer the crowd that attended their live shows. During the first year 60Tigres managed to develop in the local scene. After the members participated in many bands, they started to mold the actual lineup of 60 Tigres. They’ve been through many changes in the musical and visual aspects, always making their live shows a new experience.

Their music could be defined as a hybrid of funk, rock, punk, latin music and psychedelic. Their repertoire, in spite of being ecliectic, is full of energy, reason why their events always conclude in party full of dances.

With influences like The Talking Heads, The Clash, International Noise Conspiracy, The Who and Gang of Four, 60 Tigres have created their own style by mixing foreign influences with Spanish and English lyrics, always trying to reflect the social situation of the daily life in México.

The first recording was made in their studio in Monterrey, N.L., where they recorded their first EP called "América”, over the summer of 2005. The band has managed itself independently in order to be able to self-finance and maintain their promotion in México and the US.

Their new album is called "Los Emigrantes", which was recorded and produced by themselves and with collaborations of Luis Guerra, Miguel Moreno, Luis Escamilla, mixed and post-produced by Memo Guerra in London and masterized by Marco Moreno in México City.

60 Tigres have played in Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, San Antonio, Austin (SXSW Festival 2008), México City, Puebla, Cuernavaca, Chihuahua, Ciudad Juárez, Torreón, Monterrey, besides sharing stage with bands such as Junior Boys, The Whitest Boy Alive, Babasonicos, and Delorean.
