LOST LOBOS

AS THE LATIN PLAYBOYS, HALF THE BAND FROM EAST L.A. HARVESTS ITS AVANT-GARDEN

"It wasn't some self-indulgent kind of thing, but I've thought about that with a little bit of guilt," he says, then reaches for a parable. "A long time ago, a painter friend of mine asked me if I was doing any painting, and I told him I hadn't been doing it for a while. The band was taking off, and I really didn't want to promote myself as a painter because of the band. And he says, 'You got to take it any way you can get it!' And he was right. It's difficult enough for you to associate your artistic impulses with the rest of the world, anyway."
Still, there is no plan to take the Playboys on the road. "I think we'd have great fun doing it live," gushes Perez. "But it just wouldn't work out with schedules, that sort of thing. And I don't know if I really want to put that kind of emphasis on it, to have to promote it as something. I just want it to go out there and live its own life.
