Mr. Loco, also known as Mister Loco or Mr. Loco Band, is a Mexican band formed in 1975, singing mostly in English, though occasionally in Spanish. Its sound is a combination of pop rock and Latin American folk.
Mister Loco is an offshoot band established by previous members; Javier (Xavier) Garza Alarcón, Jorge García Castil and Rafael Acosta from the Mexican rock band 'Los Locos Del Ritmo'. Although the band Mister Loco was formed in 1975, 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.
In late 2005, the band got a new revival, thanks to film director Jared Hess. As Hess owned their album and knew the members of the band, he saw that it perfectly fit to use their music for his film Nacho Libre. He used Hombre Religioso (Religious Man) as the title song in it, and the songs Bubble Gum and Papas are also featured in the film.
