Special thanks to: Ulysses, Gideon and Andrea Lucard, for their support, encouragement and endurance as these songs grew from infancy to adolescence alongside our many adventures; Nancy Howard Mello and William Howard for their music, creativity and unconditional love; Michèle Buteau et Audrey Baete for their help with Aux Bains des Pâquis; Scott Bauer for shepherding me, my mando and 11 harmonicas up to Jackal Hut (12,000 feet above Leadville, Colorado) where Back Country was born; all the fantastic musicians and friends who gave such great performances for this record; Jasper Soloff for his gorgeous photos and for youthful advice; Jeremy Van Hoy for flying all the way to Switzerland just to cut his tracks (ok, and maybe take his family around Europe a bit); to Stephane Boffejon for going above and beyond in working with me on the CD package design; and especially mon pote, el duderhinho original, Diego Gadenz, for his amazing ears and tireless talents et pour la Sinatra-ization de ma voix et le Claptonification de ma guitare...

Malcolm Lucard 2001

Lucard's lyrics "inhabit a wild world of moon colonies, smelly toes, two-headed calves, senility, human cockroaches and heart attacks. It's a world of funky rhythms and musical surprises and power chords played by trombones." 

 

The Colorado Springs Gazette.

 

 

"One of the best new CDs we've gotten in lately."

Malcolm and friends 
Live at the Western Jubilee Recording Company 

"Lucard is climbing the ladder of success and notoriety like a caffeinated red uakari monkey on a warm Peruvian day. Soon his quick, precise way with the strings and honest, original lyrics will propel him out of this burg — catch him before he's famous."

Irrational Exuberance EP! 2006

Irrational Exuburance

"Most of us get sick of songs that get stuck in our heads. The music of Lucard and [his band Irrational Exuberance] is in my head still, yet amazingly not annoying. In fact, though I only remember a few lyrics, I find that my mind's eagerness to replay ie's music a testament to their quality."
