about

Having met at an underground screening of the mythic “Vanishing Point”, The Rebels of Tijuana were formed in June 2008 in Geneva and have played with bands such as The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Charlatans, The Lords of Altamont, Legendary Tiger Man, Hushpuppies or Sallie Ford. With more than 200 concerts around Europe, they realised a lot of Ep's, singles, and albums.

A Rock’n’Roll runaway trip that brings these mercenaries on high speed roads, rolling to the sound of Nuggets psychedelic tapes, Southern soul, Mods sensations, wild French yé-yé pop music or tripped Californian hookahs. Wanker kerosene for french lads. Elegance, good taste and nonchalant dandyism are the mottos of this pack. A drag of Mexican weed and a smirk on their faces will remind you that the next revolution is in motion! These guys have got nothing to lose but to make some fine cut rock’n’roll.


En français //

The Rebels of Tijuana font de la musique de méchants garçons des années soixante. Quand il suffisait de porter une veste en daim et un blue jeans pour être taxé de voyou et de fripouille. Si ces dandies devaient revendiquer un père spirituel, tant pour la musique que pour les textes, il s’agirait de Jacques Dutronc. L’ombre du chanteur plane sur le groupe, comme d’autres choses qui ont formé la contre-culture en France: le cinéma de la Nouvelle Vague, les mini-jupes et les yéyés.

Avec au compteur plusieurs albums, singles, EPs, compilations, des tournées européennes à go go, des gros festivals, des ouvertures pour Jon Spencer, les Charlatans, les Lords of Altamont, ou Sallie Ford pour ne citer qu’eux, The Rebels of Tijuana s’est bâtie une solide réputation de branleurs hyperactifs du rock n’roll, reconnus en force par la presse française (Philippe Manœuvre, Rock & Folk, Le Mouv’, France Inter, Ouï FM…)
