Los Pinche Pinches

What do wipeouts, spilled beers, and sun burns have in common? Nothing really, but they go great with the sounds of Los Pinches Pinches. It’s what you get if you had Dick Dale shredding over the quirky math rock of Arab on Radar. It’s surf rock for weirdos.

Born of a mutual love for Trailer Park Boys and The Matrix, our music is a dirty stew of whacked out prog and punk-inspired minimalism. Our latest, Zephyranthes III, dips into the dimebag to find a handful of radioactive sonic nuggets.
