A bit of nostalgia. I was reminded of this film clip by my son Clarence who found it online.

Cinco Locos was a 5 piece formed on the tropical verandahs of Darwin NT in 2001.

The members were Byron Williams (AKA Toe-Fu from the Herd) on vocals and guitar, Phil Eaton on Bass, Ingrid Smith on Saxophone, Jodie Kell on Trumpet and Justin Moon doing beats and samples.

This film clip was made at the Pub Bar in Darwin for a track recorded as part of the SBS The Whatever Sessions CD.

To best describe the music of cinco locos it is best to enter “casa del la cinco locos” ; the home of cinco locos.

If you experience this, it should subside shortly after the show but if nodding persists please consult your doctor.
