"Overnight Success" took a mere 14 years to complete - thus the name. We plan to spend about 3 hours on our next CD - working title is "Forever Feo".
On a more serious note, there is not a single track on this album about "Butt Plugs". For that, refer to our earlier effort - "Politically Incorrect".

We are often asked who influenced our sound. We have listed below 3 seminal influences.
"Krunchie Dead Leaves" - not many are aware of this band from New Zealand. The band formed in 1971. The original band members were a morbidly obese tatooed Samoan proctologist and a one-legged hermaphrodite dwarf with a lisp. They had only one gig before breaking up. A day before their gig, the dwarf met a blind white girl and he left New Zealand forever. The Samoan was determined to play the gig. Moments before showtime, he became heavily flatulent and the club manager canceled the show.
Subject of myth, rumor and downright BS, the "KDL", as their fans call them, were ahead of their time with a raw sound that few ever experienced. Actually, that no one ever experienced. Feo Y Loco took a lot from the "KDL" in both a spiritual and musical sense.
"Oxy the Moron" played for many years in the deep woods of East Texas. They were steeped in the blues and their sound echoed the deep rhythms of the jungle. This was due in part to their drummer, who was a Chimpanzee (contrary to the scuttlebutt, he was not the Moron). By the late 1980's the band had run its course. The drummer had a species change and according to news reports became an investment banker for Lehman Brothers and worked there until the Great Crash of 2008.
"Poot" - what can you say about Poot? Not much, really, except they were a gas.
