Formed in Mexico City in 2011 but inactive for 5 years due to pursuing other projects; Los Importantes de la Noche are back.
Los Importantes de la Noche are Gustavo Jacob on keyboards & vocals, Zulu González on bass & vox and Ricardo Jacob on guitar, vox & drums. Each member has more than 20 years of experience in the Mexican music scene with bands such as Intestino Grueso, Roberto Ponce, Los Jaigüey, Thelmo Castelló, Luz de Riada, Ádada, The Room Trio & La Escalera. The band have also worked in animation, photography and journalism.
With a unique sound emulating the romantic songs from the 50’s and the psychedelia & garage punk from the 60’s, Los Importantes de la Noche fuse this together with a Latin feel. Their sound is inspired by the simple beauty of Roy Orbison passing through early Pink Floyd, Los Saicos, Question Mark and the Mysterians, Them, The Forminx & Los Monjes among many others.
The band released “Un Dia Mas” in early 2017. Lenny Helsing of Shindig! Magazine wrote “There’s a lightness of touch here with regard to the vocals as well as an exquisite warmth to the delicious organ playing and roving percussion, all of which helps to breathe a softly strange, and lightly psychedelic reverie into the proceedings.”
