Biography

Mr. Loco, also known as Mister Loco or Mr. Loco Band
Several of their songs such as RELIGIOUS MAN and BUBBLEGUM
were used in the soundtrack of the movie NACHO LIBRE.

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 it perfectly fit to use their music with the film. He used ‘Religous Man (I am I am)’ as the title song in it, and also ‘Bubble Gum’ and ‘Papas’ to fit in the rest of the film.

Mr Loco GRAND PRIX WINNER IN THE WORLD POPULAR
SONG FESTIVAL IN TOKYO ‘75
HIGHLIGHT CONCERT IN OSAKA JAPAN.
Yamaha Music Foundation

Formed in 1975. Mister Loco was 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 group Mister Loco was formed in 1973, 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.

    Hi Mister Loco Band, I loved the songs on the NACHO soundtrack album. But we can't get your original self-titled ALBUM: Mister Loco - Mister Loco on CD. PLEASE PLEASE release it with the original TRACKS and COVER ART. Beck, Jared Hess and Jack Black have put you back in the spotlight and there's a big following for the film. Put the REISSUE of ALL your ORIGINAL ALBUMS out (Mister Loco, Disco Loco, etc...) on AMAZON and watch them sell!!!! Martin (a big fan from Sydney, Australia)
