Laid Back - Cocaine Cool

"Laid Back, still grooving after more than 30 years.

Way back in 1981, on the same night the “White Horse” groove was born and jammed onto an 8-track tape recorder Laid Back also did some other recordings that were never completed and have stayed on the shelf ever since. Recently, in the process of transferring old analog master tapes to digital they came across those 8-track tapes, and when listening again, found the unused material quite up-to-date.

One of the unfinished grooves, a brother to “White Horse” has now been completed by just adding bass and vocals. The lyrics for this track, written by Arthur Stander, go back to the same trip to Los Angeles trying to shop some songs… the cocaine coolness of the A/R guys there were the inspiration!

Artistically, it has been quite satisfying to complete a 29-year old recording, but It also signals the dawn of a new era and more to come. For now, we hope you will enjoy this track, along with our self-made video. Good vibes from Laid Back. - Copenhagen, September 2010

Fast-forwarding to the present, Laid Back now have their own record company, Brother Music! The first release is ‘Cocaine Cool’ censored by their record company at the time… This track is the forerunner of more new material. The single and 12” vinyl are coming soon.

Laid Back is more than music, words and visuals... it's a way of thinking, a way of living."
