King Louie Bankston Death

King Louie Bankston Death – Obituary: King Louie Bankston, the prolific rock’n’roll artist who was a member of the Exploding Hearts, died on Sunday night (February 13). His mother confirmed the news to Pitchfork. Bankston recorded with multiple bands and was an institution in the Memphis and New Orleans punk scenes. His bands included the Royal Pendletons, Persuaders, Missing Monuments, and the group Bad Times with Jay Reatard and Eric Oblivian. He was 49 years old.

Bankston grew up and lived most of his life just outside of New Orleans in Harahan, Louisiana. His family ran a hardware store in town, and when young Louie became interested in skateboarding as a middle schooler, the business expanded to become a skate shop. He said that skateboard culture of the late 1980s heavily influenced his taste in music. “The more I became a skater and it became my lifestyle, the more I realized I wanted to play music,” he told The Times-Picayune in 2011. His early bands included Intelligenitals, Lame Ones, and Clickems.
