Menudo on drugs," San Juan, Puerto Rico's Davila 666 combine Stooges-like garage rock fire with the occasional sugary pop melody. The seven -- not six, surprisingly -- Davilas include singer/tambourine player Sir Charles, multi-instrumentalist AJ, guitarists/vocalists Miss Davila and Johnny Otis, drummer/guitarist/vocalist San Pablo, percussionist/vocalist Panda, and guitarist/drummer/vocalist Gigi. Their theatrical live show -- which includes themes, props, costumes, and dancers -- won them fans in the States when they toured with the Black Lips and the King Khan & BBQ Show. Davila 666's self-titled U.S. debut was released in summer 2008 via In the Red Records. After a somewhat quiet year in 2009, the band came back strong in 2010, releasing an EP on Rob's House Records and singles on Norton (covering the Rolling Stones' "She's a Rainbow") and Vice (a split with the Dirtbombs). In 2011 the band's second album, Tan Bajo, hit the shelves; the group also cut a live EP for Jack White's Third Man Records while touring the United States in support. In 2014, Davila 666 collected several out of print singles and EPs into the compilation album Poco Años, Muchos Daños.
