Loblaws demo

In the summer of 2007, Mike Patton from Chalmette, Louisiana moved his family up to Nashville, Tennessee thus ending the Robinsons reign of pop punk terror over the fair city-state of New Orleans. He's recently started a band up there with his brother Brett (from Sally Stitches), and his friend-brothers Wyatt and Todd (from Second Saturday). They recorded three demo tracks on Sunday, March 2, 2008.

Later in 2008, Mutant Pop released the first Loblaws 7" called The Loblaws Won't Stop which has new versions of "Tossing and Turning" and "Jimmy" plus a cover of the Beatnik Termites song "9:15" and a new Loblaws song called "It'll Take a Lot." There will be a split 7" to be released on One Eye Records with New Orleans pop punks The Rooks sometime in early 2009. When that's done, I'll post the mp3s on the blog.

You can find updates on the Loblaws here.

The picture above is from the show they played at the Big Top in New Orleans with the Ergs, Hunchback, and Rougarou (and sort of with Haarp and Thou). The famous Eric Martinez took it, and has one more here. This show was completely over-run with Mike's relatives and kids. It was intense. Surely, the legions of Chalmette can claim the day.
