Fools Like Me originates when Eric Coughanour decides to record a series of songs stemming from a breakup.
The result was Vampires in My Head, an introspective album that probes the yearning of a broken heart in a constant state of melancholy. All tracks were recorded at Eric's house during November, 2015. The album is a co-production between Eric and Manuel Calderón ( Comanche Sound, The Chamanas, Estereomance).
Acid Western influence
Eric: Not long ago, as I worked on the songs that became part of the second album "The Charmer" I realized that I insisted on a guitar style and sound that I could not figure out where it came from. As I came to re-encounter with one of my all-time favorite movies "Dead Man" by Jim Jarmush I instantly realized how much Neil Young's improvised-guitar soundtrack had a mark on me.
Dark echoed guitars (Vampires in My Head, Beginning to End), theremin sounds ala Morricone's Spaghetti western's music (Once Upon a Time), raw synth sounds (Wither or Thrive) and trip hop laid-back tempos (Foreign Language) are some of the elements that define the sound of the band.

Second album, The Charmer, released on October 18, 2019 pays tribute to 60s-70s psychedelic rock (I Still Belong to You, The Charmer) as well as to the Acid Western genre (No Safari).
The band from Juarez, Mexico based in El Paso, Texas border consists of Eric (vocals, guitar), Sergio (bass), Alex (Synths) and Rudie (drums and pads).
