damn you lucero, damn you straight to somewhere that is not very pleasant. i will be honest, i was a little bit late to the lucero game. i got into them last year, long after a friend had raved about them a mere 2 or 3 years earlier. she lived in memphis, they are from memphis and were rippin up the local scene and from the way my friend spoke of mr nichols and co., they were also in the heart breakin business. nobody’s darlings was my favorite record of the 05, followed closely by seperation sunday and the unforgettable arm. this year we find the boys set to release rebels, rogues and sworn brothers. a record that if i didnt know any better sounds like it could be a lost springsteen record from the 70′s. i will go more in depth on rogues.. in the coming weeks. its a phenomenal record, but i dont think it will be winning over any new fans, in fact i think it may alienate those looking for another futher west or tennessee. ok, i dont want to get ahead of myself. look for a full fledged review in the next week.
in the meantime, here is part one of a show from 04 in knoxville, tn. it’s a soundboard recording i believe
9. raising hell
the rest of the show may be up later tonight, depending on my mood.
remember you can still pre-order rogues, rebels & sworn brothers by clicking here. i think its a great idea that they are sending everyone who pre-orders a link to the download the record within two days of ordering.
