Mister Loco

Mister Loco

Mr. Loco, also known as Mister Loco or Mr. Loco Band, is a Mexican band started during the mid-1970s, singing mostly in English, though occasionally in Spanish.

In 2006, the band got a new revival, thanks to movie-director Jared Hess, who is a good friend of Beck. Beck helped out Jared with the soundtrack to his movie Nacho Libre, starring Jack Black. And as he owned their album, (even knew the members of the band), he saw that it perfectly fit to use their music with the film. He used Hombre Religioso (Religious Man) as the title song in it, and also Bubble Gum and Papas in the rest of the film.

Formed in 1975. Mister Loco is an offshoot band established by previous members; Javier (XAVIER) Garza Alarcón, JORGE García Castil & RAFAEL Acosta from the Mexican rock band 'Los Locos Del Ritmo'. Although the band Mister Loco was formed in 1975, individually the six members had been studying Latin American folk and modern music for fifteen years. Mister Loco was formed with a somewhat adventurous and original idea -to mix the different element of music in Latin America, to combine traditional Latin rhythms and instruments with popular music as it is now expressed internationally.
