Seksan Sukpimai (Thai: เสกสรรค์ ศุขพิมาย – born 7 August 1974) also known as by the stage name Sek Loso. (เสก โลโซ) is a Thai musician and singer-songwriter. He is the former lead singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter of the Thai rock band Loso.

Biography[edit]

Seksan, the son of an itinerant rice-farming family, moved to Bangkok at age 12 and found work in a shop owned by an aunt, making jewelry. He also worked in a factory that made air conditioners. In 1991, inspired by his favorite artists, including Guns N' Roses and Carabao, he saved up enough to buy an inexpensive guitar, learned some chords and talked his way onto the stage at one of Bangkok's best-known live-music venues at the time, Austin Pub. Within a year, the 17-year-old singer-guitarist was leading the house band, playing covers of Thai rock, indie and pop, as well as Green Day, Nirvana, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix.[1]

In 2016 he was convicted of assaulting an acquaintance; after being senctenced to a suspended prison sentence (two and a half years) and community service, he "called on youngsters and his fans to have self-restraint during any provocative event and be cautious when posting comments in the social media".[2]

Incident at Lincoln Center[edit]

Sek Loso performed in a rock opera adaptation of the Ramakien national epic on July 28–30, 2006 at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in New York.

On stage during the first night's performance he struck another Thai on the head with a shoe, during an altercation. The two musicians then grappled with each other and eventually took their fight offstage. A video of altercation was shown on television in Thailand and was later posted to YouTube. Sek refused to return to the production and Loso rhythm guitarist Tom Loso replaced the frontman as Phra Rama for the remainder of the show.[3][4][5]
