Mexrrissey live at Church Leeds


Morrissey is massive in Mexico. His songs of love, loss and longing struck a chord, finding a huge, passionate audience of fans. Mexico is showing its appreciation – in Mexrrissey, a Mexican brass- and string-led Morrissey cover band. Imagine Mancunian heart and soul to a cumbia and boleros sound.

Camilo Lara, force behind the respected electro “Mexican Institute of Sound” is the first of the band. He gathered a bunch of Mexico’s most talented from the country’s finest bands to form Mexrrissey, a seven-piece with an evolving line-up.

The band’s debut album “No Manchester” (Mexican slang meaning ‘no way’) was released in March 2016 – and was produced by Lara, arranged by Lara and Sergio Mendoza, and mixed by Jack Lahana (winner of multiple Grammys for his work with Phoenix and Daft Punk).

From testing the waters with their first show in Mexico City in April 2015, the band have gone on to storm through a sold-out mainstage debut at London’s Barbican for La Linea Festival, have completed a UK tour and tore the house down at BAM New York and The Regent in LA.

“Mexrrissey isn’t a cover band, it’s a tribute to everything Morrissey has been to Mexico, and everything Mexico has made him to be.”
