Biography

Last of our Kind (LOOK) is the pre-eminent Alternative/Eclectic/Experimental/Rock Band on the San Antonio music scene. In a remarkable career that started out as a two piece Instrumental act, LOOK is Amadeus Fernandez on lead guitar, Bryan Alfaro on guitar and lead vocal, Eric Miculka on drum and backing vocal,, and Derek Easterling on bass and backing vocal . LOOK continues to push the standard for original rock music in the San Antonio scene.

Critical acclaim and a wide demographic fan base has built a dedicated following that grows each year. Whether headlining local bars, playing music festivals, headlining benefit concerts, or sharing the stage with such celebrated acts as Grupo Fantasma, The Dreaming, Vallejo, Blowing Trees, February Chorus, VAST, Mothers Anthem, Sounds Under Radio, and others, LOOK continues to add to their accomplishments. Their energy, showmanship, and vitality of their music and songwriting has kept LOOK at the forefront of the music scene.
From beginning as an open-mic act to making finals in every battle of the bands entered, LOOK’s humble and inconspicuous journey has been one of hard work, perseverance, and dedication . Most recently LOOK entered the Hard Rock Café Calling in which they won the top spot in the San Antonio/Austin region and made it to the top 20 nationally in 2009 . As well as being a featured band for 2009’s Texas Folklife festival and SA Rock n Roll Marathon 2009. Their music is clever, melodic, and refined and their performances are entertaining, mesmerizing and epic. There’s a reason why San Antonio’s Current magazine awarded best instrumentalist of San Antonio 2007 to Amadeus Fernandez, and why SARocks.com was impressed with new vocalist Bryan Alfaro. The new addition of Eric Miculka on drums, and Derek Easterling on bass has given a robust and full sound to the LOOK family ready for the making.
- Amadeus’ chord progressions and riffs are catchy, delicate, and moody.
- Bryan’s vocals are melodic, vibrant, passionate, and daring.
- Eric’s drum work is seamless, poised, and extraordinary.
- Derek’s bass playing is well thought and persuasive.
The interaction among the four represents Alternative and Eclectic Rock at its best. LOOK is in the midst of its creative stride with four candidates that work and play well together. LOOK will release a much anticipated demo album prior to the close of 2009 followed by a self-titled freshman album scheduled for work in late 2010 as well as being a featured band for San Antonio’s Fiesta event “ Oysterbake Festival” in 2010 . By all accounts, for this “eclectic band,” as SARocks.com recently described them, “it would be best to keep your eyes on this band and your ears tuned in to their music.
LOOK has finally come in to their own.

Lyrics

New London

Written By: Last of our Kind

So it seems that i'm getting better
and she doesn't understand
why i'm getting so much traction
that she doesn't believe

so why must i carry on and you not phathom
this is the optimistic version of myself
so why must i carry on and you not suffer?
well this is the optimistic version of myself

and i feel that i will falter
so i hold you tight
why was i always made to believe
this question violates my mind

so why must i carry on and you not phathom
this is the optimistic version of myself
so why must i carry on and you not suffer?
well this is the optimistic version of myself

Inconsistency

Written By: Last of our Kind

Why were things so complicated
i thought we had already made it
but all your strings were attached
i gave it all got nothing back

The days went by without a call
i hid the tears you hid your faults
why must we go through this
don't come back for one last kiss

Cause i don't want you to feel like you are lonely
I thought that you would never ever hold me
but wait and see ill be another tiny memory
Cause i don't care for who you really are
i thought you were my only star
but wait and see ill be another tiny memory

An inconsistency eulogy
is all that's left of you and me
our piece of heaven no longer found
i shot you up you brought me down

My nights are cold your days are long
will we ever know what wrong?
why must we go through this
don't come back for one last kiss

Cause i don't want you to feel like you are lonely
I thought that you would never ever hold me
but wait and see ill be another tiny memory
Cause i don't care for who you really are
i thought you were my only star
but wait and see ill be another tiny memory

Hush Little Baby

Written By: Last of our Kind

She wore her heart on a torn up sleeve
it said fragile don't touch please
Cause if you break it i will leave

And every night she sleeps alone
on a bed she has outgrown
now she figured out
that past is gone now let it go

Hush little baby don't say a word
Cause i'm going to buy you a brand
a brand new world
And if that world wont let you see
then i will stand here and watch you
watch you leave

Black tears stain her face
another day in her heart breaks
shes screaming out
so loud she shouts
why must i be alone
never ever have i been on my own
shes standing close
and i watched her dreams get lost

Hush little baby don't say a word
Cause i'm going to buy you a brand
a brand new world
And if that world wont let you see
then i will stand here and watch you
watch you leave

Firefly

Written By: Last of our Kind

You don't need to call me anymore
when you're drugged out
I don't see this submission as a conscious way to get by
I don't need know that you will amount to something
oh don't you lie , Cause i already see

Cause i'm running back
Don't let go
Cause i'm running back
Don't let go

I didn't mean to have an alibi
this i will not scream ,
scream out loud
But this environment can not contain
oh don't you lie cause i already see

Cause i'm running back
Don't let go
Cause i'm running back
Don't let go

This fire burns brighter
Brighter than i remember
Well dont denounce your crimes
Cause you're a Firefly

Caught You Staring

Written By: Last of our Kind

There's a scent in the air
and i can feel you're near
at the corner of your eyes
is where i spend the night

As i lay down to rest
i can always hear your breath
you whisper in my ear
all the things i want to hear

i want to know
i need to know
i have to know
if she is right

i want to know
i need to know
i have to know
if she is right

Well i ask myself why
i let you in tonight
My thoughts are running while
because you stayed awhile

You never say a word
My thoughts are all you heard
You whisper in my ear
All the things i want to hear

i want to know
i need to know
i have to know
if she is right

i want to know
i need to know
i have to know
if she is right
