Creative Loafing/The Weekly Planet sez “This all-instrumental New Orleans quartet plays dark, experimental soundscapes reminiscent of the heavier moments from two other vocal-less outfits, Friends of Dean Martinez (sans pedal steel) or Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Named for the chaos, anxiety and possibility of the year preceding the Mexican Revolution, the band’s music reflects those primal emotions to the letter.” (quoted from their 2004 “Top 21 Southeastern Bands” list).
The band’s original lineup (guitarist Miles Britton, guitarist/bassists Brian Antonak and Ashley Fain, and drummer Dave Jeffries) was altered after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans in 2005, an event that also interrupted the band’s Baton Rouge studio sessions of their nearly-completed third album. A year after the storm, three fourths of Mexico 1910 had reconvened in Philadelphia, PA to begin anew. Ashley Fain chose to stay in New Orleans while the band added Jim Coughlin and Armando Morales to the lineup. Look for Mexico 1910 playing in Philadelphia now.
