Vetiver Bong get inspired by Mexico City to create this kind of soundtrack of his life. But his escapes to the beach during Eastern inspired them too, as well as any starred table dance establishments, and the night, the bars, its decadence and double senses. The streets, the country bars, ‘ficheras’ films, marketplaces, bongs, ‘Que transa con las bandas’ book, magazines, amongst many others inspire them too. There’s an unofficial story that says Joaquin had to rob stone sacks to buy Vetiver Bong’s mask and his white shirts… but that will never be known for sure.
