LUCERA (loo ché rä)
• A town in Apuila S. Italy. Pop 35,615 (1991)
• A Five year old New Zealand Racing Horse from the stable of Aquinita trainer Dan O’Sullivan.
• A Dublin based band playing rock/folk music using acoustic/electric guitar, violin, drums, toilet-roll inserts, sticky-back
plastic and scissors without parental guidance. Mother Earth gave birth to Lucera through the combination of alcohol,
the Nitelink and GAA training in the summer of 2003 and since then have been playing around Dublin and some parts
of the you didn’t even know existed!
With all members coming from different counties, Lucera have developed some interesting tunes containing catchy
strumming, melodic vocals, solid rhythm and soft violin playing. They create music more pleasing to the ear than a good
scratch of a pencil. In essence, light enough for the girls and heavy enough to maintain male interest, Lucera will make
almost any crowd stop and listen. Even herded wildebeest crossing a croc filled river!
Live, there is a notable sense of camaraderie within the group, which can be put down to well-matched personalities
and similar musical aims. Described by audiences as a loose mix between country and rock, (that they call coc.. no
rountry, yeah, that sounds better) Lucera’s most distinctive features are a unique southpaw singer, an angry lead
guitarist, hyperactive goat chasing bassist and a Puerto Rican drummer with a fluctuating waist-line not unlike Oprah.
Lucera have two simple ideas about music:
(a) that music must be honest.
(b) that the song is more important than any one instrument or secondary aim.
(c) that numbers will be replaced by letters and next time they’ll ask someone who can actually count to do up the biog.
“Delicately crafted hushed rock that at times leans toward alt country influences... ...Lucera come across as being a
close-knit unit, which transcends into brilliantly administered music?
“If you lot ring me again or call at my office I’ll have the Guards after you.... ...and the Horse you rode in on!?
