Los Kung Fu Monkeys are an eight-piece punk ska-core band from Tijuana B.C. Mexico. Formed in 1997, they play in and around Southern California as well in Baja California Mexico. Their 13-song debut CD on One Shot Records contains high energy music with dual vocals, including a cover of the Cure’s classic “Boys Don’t Cry.”
Subsequent albums included Rebuilding the World and End Transmission. In 2010, they released a collection of songs from all three records, And They Came From Tijuana (1997-2007).
And They Came From Tijuana (1997-2007) features tracks from the band’s out-of-print first three records, one of them never available in the U.S.: Rebuilding the World, End Transmission, and a self titled album previously only available in Europe and Mexico.
