Lucero are many things. They're a band that doesn't have fans as much as they have diehards who come to every show and scream the words to every song from their classic albums like Tennessee and That Much Further West. They're road warriors who live in their tour van and have had their touring experiences chronicled in the Dreaming In America DVD. They're a band that has been tagged as alt-country and punk country. They're a band that has written plenty of songs about girls and guitars, and about life, love, drinking, and life, love, and drinking while on the road. They expanded their lyrical palette on 2005's critically acclaimed Nobody's Darlings and in 2006 they re-released the hard-to-find home-recorded gem, The Attic Tapes. To call Lucero Memphis' answer to Bruce Springsteen is not a stretch. It's just how it is. On Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers, Lucero aren't afraid to show how much The Boss has been an influence on them, all the while maintaining their patented sound and style. Being from the South is important I think. It gives the songs a place. It makes Lucero what it is. The Pogues could never have been from anywhere other than Ireland. Bruce Springsteen could only be from Jersey. Ultimately, Lucero live to rock and rock to live. No more. No less. Its really that simple.
