Welcome to Loco

Welcome to Loco

BandAlternativeRock

A schizophrenic, post-apocalyptic mix of 60's psychedelic blues, balls to the wall rock and roll and hard-hitting acid house.

Biography

Welcome To Loco is the solo project of Jack Lucas. Jack is best known as the lead guitarist of seminal Perth indie band, Yummy Fur/6 Mile High. He's an extremely experienced musician and performer who has supported acts like Jesus & Mary Chain, the Stone Roses, Swervedriver, Prodigy and even the Gaslamp Killer twice. He has also collaborated with some seriously high caliber musical pioneers such as Shaun Ryder and Stephen Mallinder (co-founder of Cabaret Voltaire).

But after considerable anticipation within industry, Jack’s Welcome To Loco project is his first solo project. Backed by Jamie Harskamp (ex-Verona) and bassist Joel Swadling, WTL is a fusion of Jack’s famed 60's Jimi Hendrix-styled psych blues mixed with flints of electronic body music (think 808 State) and acid-tinged electronica. It is the schizophrenic, and iconoclastic culmination of all of Jack’s influences as an artist and as a person brought into one experimental and volatile whole that is pure of heart and unlike any other musical act out there at the moment.

Lyrics

Revelations

Written By: Kiriakos Lucas / Welcome to Loco

Give it back (x4)
To you

Revolution is no solution
Revelation is my solution
Revolution is no solution
Revelation is my solution

Gotta give it back to you
Give it back to you (x3)

Revolution
Noise pollution
Revolution
Noise pollution

Never thought I’d live to fight another day
Pick yourself on up, find a new way
I know how you’re living the life
Can’t sleep because your sun won’t shine
See me from the corner of an eye
You’re my doomsday device
Don’t matter got the old man’s pride
I will my soul, my pride (x2)

Revolution is no solution
Revelation is my solution
Revolution, noise pollution
Revelation is my solution

Lock the doors there’s a war outside
Might be a revolution tonight
These parasites wanna take my life
Dropping bombs, leaving holes in the sky
You’re my doomsday device
Don’t matter, got the old man’s pride
I will not sell my pride (x2)

Revelations are my solution
Gotta give it back, to you

Angel Eyes

Written By: Kiriakos Lucas / Welcome to Loco

One day, you’ll look back and realise
Intentions were true, pure and clear
Walk at the streets at night
Hope to God you stay alive
Little girl’s got me mesmerised with angel eyes

Walk the streets at night
Hope to God you stay alive
Little girl’s got me mesmerised with angel eyes

Never thought of you as a stranger
I didn’t tell you all I should’ve
Walk the streets at night
Hope to God you stay alive
Little girl’s got me mesmerised with angel eyes

You walk the streets at night
Hope to God you stay alive
Little girl’s got me mesmerised with angel eyes (x4)

(Angel eyes)

She won’t win, she won’t win
Won’t win, without love
Won’t win, won’t win, won’t win without love.
