Lonnie Walker is part of the reason that Friends Records became a record label. In 2009, when Future Islands were telling Brett Yale that they wished that they could put out a split single with their best friends from college, this is the band that they were talking about.
Lonnie Walker is sadly not around anymore. A quintet based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, we fell in love with them immediately. Brian David Corum is an outstanding songwriter and singer and I don't think that we have heard the last of him by a long stretch.
Lonnie Walker were featured on FR003, Future Islands "The Ink Well"/Lonnie Walker "Love Turns" split 7". It was limited to 1000 copies. It was on peach colored vinyl. It was beautiful.
