Liner notes from the compact disc, with new stuff added for the Web version"Saying you're politically incorrect isn't enough,
You have to act on those impulses"
FEO Y LOCO
When you say the name "Feo Y Loco", what comes to mind isn't the legendary beauty of the "Deaconettes", nor even the fact that all of the men in the group are hung like the proverbial stallion. No, what comes to mind first and foremost is the artistry of the great Bari Bradini, from Cusco, Peru.
It's a well concealed fact (no doubt part of a conspiracy) that the American style of music known as the "blues" isn't of North American origin. The blues was born thousands of miles south, in Peru. There, centuries ago, lonely shepherds guarding flocks of Alpacas created the music we call the "blues". The original blues instrument wasn't the harmonica or guitar, it was the pan pipe. The foremost living practitioner of this ancient form of blues is Bari Bradini. Serendipity brought him into contact with FEO Y LOCO, and he has become a regular performer at live gigs.
During his performances, many in the audience drop their pants (men and women!) and dance in their underwear, or in official FEO Y LOCO boxer shorts. At the end of the performance, the Great Bradini autographs women's breasts. This is an ancient custom of Peruvian "bluesmen", dating back before written history.
According the Great Bradini, who speaks only Quechua, he is on a mission to spread the blues music of his ancestors in the United States. And to meet young women. If you listen carefully, you can hear the plaintive wail of the blues pipes on several tracks on this CD. As for meeting young women, he's on his own.
