Zechs Marquise Interview: Getting Paid & The Seeming Rise of Instrumental Bands

L-R: Matt Wilkson, Riko Rodriguez-Lopez, Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez, Marcos Smith, and Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez

On a warm autumn day in Southern California over cold beer and YouTube videos, the members of Zechs Marquise talk of their recent boating experience.

"It was a day off [during the RX Bandits farewell tour] and we all went to [Shasta Lake],” bassist Marfred Rodriguez-Lopez explains. Drummer Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez (who also handles percussion duties in The Mars Volta) chimes in, “[RX Bandits] rented a boat for us!”

An El Paso instrumental group comprised of three brothers and two childhood friends, Zechs Marquise has been doing much more than plain sailing at sea. This year alone, the band has completed stints alongside Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group, as well as the aforementioned RX Bandits farewell trek. In September, the band released its sophomore studio album Getting Paid — a record, the group says, that encompasses the beauty of songwriting.

"We’ve definitely worked a lot more on arranging our music as of recently," guitarist Matt Wilkson comments, adding that the band would play shows in the early days with 20-minute songs. "Not everyone wants to sit through that."

New Album in 2011 

We found this old clip of Zechs Marquise playing Sirenum Scopuli live in NYC on 3.25.2010 at the Gramercy Theater featuring a little guest guitar work from our brother and friend Matt Embree of RX Bandits so we wanted to share it, because damn if we aren’t excited about the new album coming  in 2011. 


Zechs Bandits!
