Re: “Lucero: Live in New York

On the other hand if a band called Lucero is ever playing near you, avoid. Talk about a whole-hog buy-in to rock authenticity myths serving as a substitute for even the slightest musical or lyrical interest: Songs that consist only of grunt-yelling (like the grunt-yelled parts of early Steve Earle and Uncle Tupelo songs, with all the other parts removed) about (a) getting drunk, (b) being rebels, mainly on the basis of (a), and (c) how some chick is trying to put them down. Yeesh. Plus they've got rabid fans who seem somewhere between frat-boy and biker-bar and left smashed beer bottles all over the washrooms. Like the assholes who went to Pogues shows just to see Shane get hammered, as if he were a sideshow freak, you know? It was creepy. The phrase that came to mind: "Date-rape band."
