LOOKIE LOOKIE CAMBRIDGE  MA   latin americana


UPCOMING SHOWS
BIO
Lookie Lookie is the brainchild of bassist Chris Maclachlan, best known for his work in the seminal Boston punk band Human Sexual Response.

Maclachlan has an abiding love for Latin Bugalu, a crossover genre invented primarily by Newyorican musicians in the 1960s. Incredibly fun and catchy, Bugalu lies somewhere between the stately Cuban sounds of the 50s and the manic high salsa of the 70s. Top artists included Joe Cuba and Ricky Ray, whose tunes form the backbone of the new band's repertoire.

In fact, the band is named for an early Rickie Ray hit, "Lookie Lookie," which encapsulates some of the pan-American fusion that went into Bugalu.

Lookie Lookie also plays early Latin-influenced music from Zaire, appreciating that the African musicians mispronounce Spanish on scale that LL's members can themselves approximate.

Lookie Lookie is an all-star lineup, as it were: Scott Getchell, trumpet; Ken Field, alto sax; Russ Gershon, tenor sax; Chris Maclachlan, bass; Rick Barry and Ken Winokur, percussion. Collectively this hoary crew is in some way responsibile for the Either/Orchestra, the Alloy Orchestra, the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, Bim Ska La Bim, Agachiko and many other musical assaults on normalcy.

Here's the song the band is named for:

And here's Joe Cuba and band doing the essential bugalu nonsense tune, "Bang Bang":
