King Louie Bankston's Persuaders records were largely released to little fanfare, as it was Louie's first real band to be up front in after years behind the skins with The Royal Pendletons. They released two 7"s in the latter half of the 1990s and a LP in 1999, toured Europe with Reatards that same year, and then that was that. Louie moved to Portland and played in 10-4 Backdoor and wrote with The Exploding Hearts.
In the mid-2000s Louie's profile rose as he moved back to New Orleans and started fronting more bands like Kajun SS and Loose Diamonds and his friend and champion Jay Reatard became an underground star. By 2006 it became necessary for a Persuaders retrospective and Jay's Shattered Records released the Forced To Fuck CD which included all the 7"s, the LP, and a bunch of unreleased material. Shattered ran a special promotion for mailorder customers where the first 100 orders would receive a bonus CDR of the last Persuaders show from February of 1999. This is it.
