Because Songs Matter


Lucero been crowd testing some new songs for a while now and they’ve been popping up on live boots here and there. Hell, I think I’ve posted a few on here already.

Well, last month one of my fellow Lucero Message Board members collected a lot of them into one post. I dunno why I didn’t think about it at the time but it took seeing them posted on another blog (Fuel/Friends) to think, “Fuck! I should share all of these with the readers“.

So, my bad. I’m sorry. Better late than never and all that shit. Which one do you like the best?

I can’t wait to hear the studio version of Sixes and Sevens.

    “Darken My Door” gave me chills when they played it in Morgantown, WV

    Darlin Do You Gamble is coming together as a big whole-band rock song which I didn’t expect.It sounds awesome.Goodbye Again is just pure sad Lucero goodness..(sang with a bottle of Jameson in hand last night)

    The Devil and Maggie Chascarillo is great and has been reworked since that recording.

    I can’t wait to hear where they worked horns into these.

    They played “Darken My Door” and “Goodbye Again” in Portland a few weeks ago. They were a-mazing songs live.

    Got high hopes for the next album. Can they keep it up? I think so.

    Just caught them in Boulder. The band is sounding better live right now than I can remember hearing in many many years. Not that their live show has ever been bad, but they were so tight last weekend. Might be a combination of having been in the studio a lot and also the fact that Ben dialed back his whiskey consumption just a tad at this show.
