ROY AND I: Chatting on the back porch of Ardent Studios in Memphis. (Thanks to Mike Wilson for the photo).
I’ve been procrastinating. Sorry. But tomorrow, I’ll post the first ever edition of The Lucero Family Podcast. You won’t want to miss this one. I talk about the new record with Ben Nichols and you’ll get to hear an acoustic version of one of the new tracks, “Who You Waitin’ On?”

Halloween is just around the corner, but I think we might as well all just give up now, because there’s no way any of are outdoing B.A. Baracus here. In […]
NEW SONG, NEVER BEEN PLAYED! Good job, lady. :)
Ok, I know this quality is gonna be shit, I took this with my phone. He said this is a new one that’s never been played live, so shit quality or not, it needed to be recorded. He never said what it was called though. Hopefully someone else there recorded this and a better video will emerge on youtube or something. But for now…..here you go.
Ben Nichols’ recommendation: “I went through my whole itunes library looking for what moved me the most. It was a tough choice. Some things I skipped over because they were too well known or too obvious, others because as much as I love them I don’t listen to them often enough to feel right writing about them. Made a list and narrowed it down to about 15 artists and bands that really hit me where it counts, from the Constantines to The Faces to The Night Marchers to Warren Zevon. But the record that has honestly been the most moving to me and the most listened to in recent times is All Night Bedroom Revival (available for free download) by a guy named Joey Kneiser. Joey Kneiser is best known as the lead singer for Tennesee-based band Glossary. This is a solo record however and I believe Joey plays everything on it. It’s mainly acoustic guitar with a few overdubs but never sounds like it’s missing anything. People discuss “brilliant songwriting” all the time and usually that just isn’t the proper description of whatever they are talking about… but that is exactly what these songs are. “Bruised Ribs,” “The Big Ocean,” and “Funeral Flowers” are three of the most moving on the record. Joey takes the best elements of Rock & Roll songwriting and combines them with the more thoughtful and emotional singer/songwriter style of doing things and comes up with exactly the right mix. Not too simple and not too complicated. Brilliant songwriting.”
Found a few videos from the solo show at El Corazon in Seattle last month. Great quality.
