Lucero Live

It's not the latin celebrity but a 4-piece outfit from Memphis. Lucero started as a touring band, gaining major attention after publishing their third full-length album, 2003’s That Much Further West. They toured with a wide range of artists—Against Me!, The Breeders, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Weakerthans; all reflecting the diversity of Lucero’s appeal. It was in 2004 that the music press also began to take pointed notice of the band—Pitchfork published a rave review of That Much Further West. Rolling Stone included it in their “Hot List,” noting it as “the country album the Replacements never made.” Alternative Press named The Attic Tapes, the band’s 4-track debut EP, one of the “top 5 home recordings of all time.” UK indie bible MOJO listed them among the “Johnny Cash torch-carriers.” In 2005 they released Nobody's Darling under their own label.

I grew up with the singer Ben Nichols. His high schools bands were always the best in town.

He had a fantastic band called 'the victory garden'. It would be a coup if you could find some of that stuff and post it!

Anyway, thanks a lot for this!!
