about

Los Mocosos are a San Francisco barrio rock band in the great tradition of War, Santana and Malo. And like those earlier bands, Los Mocosos are now breaking out of the inner city and, apparently, intending to take over the world - one garage at a time.
“Santana, Malo, War, those were all barrio bands,” says Happy Sanchez. “They would get together in the garage and play.” “It’s definitely got that feel,” adds Gabriel Sandino, the band’s guitarist. “I remember walking through the neighborhood hearing George Clinton and War, and early Santana, and salsa, all pounding out of people’s garages from house parties. Los Mocosos is part of that vibe.”
The band’s name says a lot about them. “We like to translate it as The Little Latin Rascals,” Happy explains. “Like a bunch of mischievous kids, creating havoc.” It fits, since this is a band that came about almost by accident, the result of a bit of studio mischief. “I was producing a compilation and there was enough room left on the disc for me to sneak in a track. So I wrote a song in the studio that day and got some of my friends from the neighborhood to put it together. We needed a spontaneous, absurd name for this band that didn’t really exist.” But when that song got picked up for local radio play, Happy began getting calls asking about the band. And suddenly, Los Mocosos existed.
