On the last day of June 2020, we lost a great Louisville musician to cancer, Matthew “Wink” O’Bannon.  Wink was a member of many bands including Blinders, Bodeco, and Eleventh Dream Day, and also worked as a solo artist. He was also known as a punk rock legend in this town.

Here’s a  video of early Bodeco from 1994 at The Cherokee (formerly Tewligans) with Wink on guitar.
