KING LOUIE ONE MAN BAND -'Chinese Crawfish' CD
KING LOUIE ONE MAN BAND -'Chinese Crawfish' CD. When “King” Louie Bankston was drummer for the Royal Pendletons, every drum fill was an adventure. There was no telling what condition the beat would be in by the time the fill was over, but no matter how amiss it never seemed to daunt Bankston’s joy. He was making a rock ’n’ roll noise and that seemed to be all that really mattered. Fast forward almost 10 years and his love of making a rock ’n’ roll noise still outstrips his technical proficiency, but now he wrestles with his guitar as well as drums. On Chinese Crawfish, he sings songs about being a one-man band, his girl being a big bopper and all set to a dreary Memphis back drop. Great stuff and truly a legend in the Memphis rock n roll scene. Fans of the Oblivians, Gories, Lover, Reatards or Royal Pendletons need.
