Seis Pistos, C'Mon Top NXNE Honor Roll

chartattack.com
As promised, the NXNE report cards are in, the scores have been tallied and we can now announce the 2004 NXNE Class Valedictorian. After slogging through nearly 150 bands, our intrepid crew of Chart Attack reviewers have named Seis Pistos as the most impressive band to play NXNE.

Seis who? Not unlike El Vez, the Mexican Elvis, Seis Pistos are the Mexican Sex Pistols. Their Mexi-punk ways charmed our reviewer so much that he gave them a near-perfect score of 99. The band cover classic punk and rock songs with a Latino bent - Brilliant.

Generally, the rock and the roll fared well with the Chart army. Perennial Honor Roll Ian Blurton and his new band C'Mon also scored high with their show at the Horseshoe on Saturday night. Fellow hard rockers The Illuminati kicked some serious ass at the Rivoli on Friday night and prairie buzz band Despistado snagged fourth place on the Honor Roll.

Seis Pistos join a growing list of Class Valedictorians that include Metric (CMW 2004), White Cowbell Oklahoma (NXNE 2003), Tangiers (CMW 2003), Lowest Of The Low (NXNE 2002), The Datsons/High Dials (CMW 2002) and Russian Futurists (NXNE 2001).

Here's a list of Chart Attack's 2004 NXNE Honor Roll. For more NXNE info and a full list of report cards, check out our special NXNE section here.

1. Seis Pistos (Chihuahua, Mexico)
2. C'Mon (Toronto, ON)

SPILL MAGAZINE
Seis Pistos
Korima Punk
This punk band that hails from Chihuahua, Mexico are probably not keen to be likened with the trendy canines that hail from their home state, but it’s a surprisingly apt comparison. The band members are feisty, cute, and small in stature, and they pack an enthusiastically noisy, yet non-threatening, bark. Featured at this year’s CMW, Seis Pistos proved, both in their live show and in this release, that language doesn’t really matter in punk rock. Most of the songs on this disc are in Spanish, though the band does wisely add in a few English tracks to avoid alienating English-speaking fans. However, with vocalist Iván’s motor-mouthed delivery, it’s often difficult to tell which language a song is in. The best songs on the album are the anthemic tracks anchored by Kenio’s skilful guitar playing and sung in Spanish like “Fuera,” “No Puede Ser,” and “GFF.” The fast-paced, basic punk recipe in this four-piece has been referred to as “Mexico’s answer to the Sex Pistols”, but they lack the snarkiness of the ‘70s Brits. The obvious sense of humour of this punk band (the English translation of their name is “Six Chicken Broths”) makes comparisons with groups like NOFX more appropriate. In fact, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Fat Wreck Chords (a label founded by NOFX singer Fat Mike) taking notice of this Mexican foursome in order to capitalize on the USA’s under-represented Latino punk rock market.

With singalong choruses sprinkled between mile-a-minute verses and strong instrumentals, Seis Pistos’ fourth full-length album shows that Chihuahua, Mexico should be recognized for more than just the purse-sized dogs currently sported by America’s super-rich blondes.

Seis Pistos of Chihuahua, Mexico, have been called the Latin Ramones or the Latin Sex Pistols, but they're not that boring or derivative. An old-school punk base melds with more recent inspiration, building on a solid rhythm section that shows potential for complexity. Hardcore galloping guitars and freak-outs at times bounce off more exotic world and reggae elements, experimenting only within the boundaries of the punk rock framework. Often, Latin punk comes with a heavy political edge à la Todos Tus Muertos or Fermin Muguruza, and it's hard to tell how socially invested these rambunctious little dudes are. There is something about the "white man" saying something, but I didn't catch what it was.
Seis Pistos play as part of CMW Friday (March 3) at the Bovine.

Biography
Seis Pistos is a band that rocks, they deliver great songs and lots of energy combining their latin influences with rock and punk, a killer combo that has resulted in a unique sound described as Latin Punk that has made a mark in Mexico`s Rock scene. They have achived a considerable number of fans both in Mexico and the US, and have a strong following via shows and social media, which is daily attended.

In words of legendary music producer Kim Fowley: "I have to say that SEIS PISTOS are the Latin Ramones for the 21st century rock marketplace. I have produced or written for such 20th century rock success stories as KISS-ALICE COOPER-VAN HALEN-NIRVANA-RUNAWAYS-STEPPENWOLF-BLUE CHEER-SEEDS. I even found time to publish music by MOTLEY CRUE AND BLUE OYSTER CULT. Wearing my hat as rock & roll-hardrock expert, I endorse SEIS PISTOS. These guys rock out and they do it in both Spanish and English. They do it from a different cultural perspective which gets a spicy flavor into rock and roll. I have heard the future of Latin rock music: and that sound belongs to SEIS PISTOS".

Don`t let the name fool you, it is an original concept, their name represents a paradox of the name of Sex Pistols with the lack of originality of rock music today. While making An original sound, they pay tribute with their name to the ones that came before while also pointing out that bands should recognize the work of great artists but not copy them and do their own stuff. It also represents that music, even rock should be fun.

After more than a decade the band have played all around their home town´s Chihuahua Mexico and El Paso Tx, the most important cities of Mexico such as: DF, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Durango, Pachuca, Torreon, etc; and have toured Dallas, El Paso, Austin, Houston, New York, Albuquerque, Las Cruces, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, the 2004 MECA CONFERENCE in Chicago, 2006 Canadian Music Week and in the 2004 NXNE FESTIVAL in Toronto Canada where they were named best band of the festival by Chart Attack magazine with a near perfect 99 score.

They have released 4 studio LPS one EP thru independent Mexican labels and music for local TV shows and short films, including the playing of their newest song “La Vida Facil” in the episode #310 of the Emmy awarded series The Shield.

In 2007 they were signed to Mexican Indie Label Peach Discos/myrocket music and they have made their mark in Mexico's national rock scene, getting great exposure in media including rotation of their latest singles "Crucial" and "Vivo en la Cancion" on MTV México and MTV Latino.

Due to the violence all over México specially in their home town Chihuahua and the increase of younger people involved in crime, the band has been involved in a series of concerts in shcools in order to promote cultural values trying help out in restoring the social tessiue that holds society togheter.

Their last record CRISIS got great airplay from commercial and college radio in Mexico and the videos for the singles “Crucial” and “Living on a Song” got great airplay every music video channel and program in Mexico including Mtv Mexico and Mtv Latino.

In October 2011 Seis Pistos released "Las Piedras" the first single of their upcoming 5th LP "Rocktrospectiva" wich will be available on 2012. The song and video of the single is rapidly achiving wide exposure in traditional and web media outlets.
