Biography

The Lackloves were formed in 1996 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Mike Jarvis of early-90’s power-pop band The Blow Pops, who enjoyed international success with the release of the classic pop albums “Charmed, I’m Sure” and “American Beauties”, both released on Get Hip Records. Originally formed as a power trio with Dedrik Bornslger on bass and Tommy D on drums, The Lackoves picked up right where the Blow Pops left off.


In 1999, Jarvis got the Lackloves into the studio and on tape. These sessions, with former Blow Pop Nick Randazzo on drums, and the addition of lead guitarist Bob Eickhoff, resulted in the now out of sight, out of print, “As Far As You Know”, the fine performances on which do well to showcase Jarvis’s Lennon/Townshend/Wilson-inspired pop gems. The disc quickly sold out of its initial pressing and can now be found only in the extensive record collections of pop aficionados worldwide.

In mid-2001, Jim McGarry of Rainbow Quartz Records�caught wind of The Lackloves, and after hearing a few tunes, signed the band and sent them into the studio. A year later, “starcitybaby” was released on Rainbow Quartz. Recorded at Milwaukee studio Walls Have Ears, with ex-Blow Pop Jack Rice now on bass and drummer Nick Verban, the album has a fuller, more realized sound than the previous Lackloves release.
