Al Bell gives two thumbs up to Lucero.
BBC did a piece last week
on Brinkley native Al Bell
last week. There's not much new for anyone who knows the history of Stax, but there's an awesome moment where he goes to Murphy's to see a performance by "up and coming local band Lucero
." At the end of one song, he give the double thumbs up you see above. Then Ben Nichols gravels that, while the band's songs have mostly been rock and country influenced, he likes to think that they're soulful. I guess that'll be true, at least from a sonic standpoint, on the new album.
