...A Thousand Guitars
Formed from the ashes of one the most tragic and beloved Punk bands in recent memory, The Exploding Hearts, they are “Terry & Louie” AKA Terry Six and King Louie Bankston. And they are back! And with a brand new full length album entitled “… A Thousand Guitars”.
Terry & Louie are THE premier songwriting partnership duo. Much like Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds (Rockpile), Chin and Chapman, and Boyce and Hart before them. They combine the heart and soul from their predecessors with catchy upbeat blasts “It’s All Mine” and the title track, “…A Thousand Guitars” also solid jukebox powerhouse hits like “Pink Razor Blade” and “Rebel Ways” and bring it into the now with grit and rawness blitzing to the forefront. Picking right back up where they left off from their days with The Exploding Hearts, “…A Thousand Guitars” has those huge, sonic signature guitar sounds and soulful vocal performances, “Includes tried and true bone crushers like, “(I’m) Looking For A Heart” - Record Turnover. “…A Thousand Guitars” is clearly a heavy contender for any record collection.
The story of Terry & Louie stems from loss and heartbreak, but they are determined to finish the job they started all those years ago in a much sleepier Portland, Oregon, and that is to write, record, and produce the most high quality songs that capture raw performance and not to rely on the tools of the 21st century to polish those great and unique artifacts that get lost in the digital world of today. To quote one of our greatest singer / songwriters, “I hear that cassette music, I want a thousand guitars.” - Nick Lowe
