Inception: San Diego, 2012


With members on either side of the border, one is tempted to lump Sixties Guns in with Tijuana’s multifaceted scene, but the band disclaims: “We aren’t American. We aren’t Mexican. We think nationalism is an illness. We aren’t a border band either, even if we live there. We are a junkyard.”

Maybe, as vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Xavi suggests, Sixties Guns assembles like Voltron – a synergistic super-beast that amounts to more than the sum of its parts.

Xavi once created dark, industrial electronic beats as Vermz. Native San Diegan John’s solo-outlet, Oye!Simpson, is a head-spinning menagerie of future trap, cumbia, and psychedelic big bass. Boom imagines disjointed, ephemeral beatscapes a la Clams Casino under the alias Fuck Parade. The fourth member, Jesse, lends his guitar and bass chops strictly to Sixties Guns, for now.

“It works like a band, just that instead of drums we’ve got MPCs,” Xavi says, “and instead of assigned areas, we all kinda move around.”
