Biography

Los Rokmantix (or LRX as known by their friends) is a San Antonio-based band that mixes American rock roots as well as Mexican influences into a unique style of Rock en Espanol.

The core of the group, Alfonso and Martha, first met in September 2007 at San Antonio’s monthly First Friday art walk. By mere chance, Alfonso caught Martha’s solo acoustic set at El Sol Studios and was immediately impressed with her originals and the ease with which the singer/songwriter was able to relate to an audience. By set’s end the drummer had quickly introduced himself and expressed his interest in forming a band. The pair became fast friends and was soon practicing every weekend, hammering out a set list with songs pulled from Martha’s massive solo repertoire.

Within three months the pair fleshed out an hour’s long set list and, with the addition of Frank on bass, had begun booking gigs on almost weekly basis. No offer was turned down and the band found themselves on the local circuit (in San Antonio as well as Austin) performing alongside various Rock en Espanol, Alternative, and cover bands. In true Do-It-Yourself fashion, the band has also organized semi-monthly parking lot shows at Sam’s Snack Stand. Besides a rough parlor recording of “Melodias,” this lineup’s sole recording was made during an on-air appearance on KSYM radio, copies of which were made and passed out as demos.

Although Frank decided to leave the band in September 2008, Los Rokmantix took this as an opportunity to focus their resolve in making an impact on the San Antonio and Austin music scenes. They are still booking shows for the remainder of 2008 (with help from Mindframe singer/bassist Andy in tow), and are determined to bring their unique mix of Rock en Espanol to the people.

Lyrics

Melodias

Written By: Martha A. Trejo

Verse
Como decirte que no,
cuando se que te quiero,
que los celos me traicionan
aunque no quisiera.
Porque me dices que te olvide
si no puedo?
Porque sera que culpable soy
por quererte?

Chorus:
Quisiera algo mas que amistad de tu parte que el extranarte es de mas quiero volvera averte no me
digas que no que mi corazon se parte en dos por ti amor, por ti amor.

Verse
Como explicarte que me duele el corazon por ti que entre mas te
pienso mas te quiero junto ami
porque me dices que te olvide si no puedo? Porque sera que culpable soy por quererte?

Chorus:
Quisiera algo mas que amistad de tu parte que el extranarte es de mas quiero volvera averte no me
digas que no que mi corazon se parte en dos por ti amor, por ti amor.

Si en cada latido escucharas mi voz
te perderias como lo hago yo
cada vez que me hablas
y me cantas en melodias.

Se Va

Written By: Martha A. Trejo

Se Va, se va la musica
Se va, se va la noche
mirando la luna en tus ojos.

No se, no se algo tienes.
Que me eleva me enloquese.
Dime quien eres.

Llegas a mi vida curando mis heridas apenas te conosco y siento que te vas clavando muy dentro de mi alma, mi alma.

Chorus
El mundo gira gira sin parar y yo me quedo esperando a que vulevas. El mundo gira gira sin parar y yo me quedo esperando a que vuelvas.

Jenny

Written By: Martha A. Trejo

Jenny armadura de hielo
porque el temes al amor

Chorus
Pero tu le dices adios no te quiero
y le das la media vuelta jenny porque le temes al amor?

Jenny armadura de hielo porque le temes al amor sabes que le haces tanto daño al el que te ama sin razon.

Chorus
Pero tu le dices adios no te quiero jenny porque le temes al amor.

Jenny porque le temes al amor?(4x)
