Los Cycos was a short-lived group from Venice, California, formed in 1984 by Mike Muir (vocals), Louiche Mayorga (bass), Grant Estes (lead guitar), Anthony Gallo (rhythm guitar) and Sal Troy (drums). Muir and Mayorga were both members of Suicidal Tendencies
and Estes had played guitar on that band's first LP. The group recorded one demo which had "it's not easy" and "A Little Each Day" (which remains hidden away) and released the one track, "It's Not Easy" which Grant played the leads and rhythm on the "Welcome To Venice" compilation, released on Muir's Suicidal Records
in 1985. Los Cycos disbanded that same year. In 1989, Suicidal Tendencies re-recorded "It's Not Easy" for their 1989 release "Controlled By Hatred/Feel Like Shit...Deja Vu".
