Rawly Punt

Who Is Rawly Punt – The Band?
Rawly Punt is a side project to Eden Automatic. It is a raucous, loud, cover band, where Doug (aka Rawly) sings lead. Vendetta (‘Nette) G-Bag (Greg) and Tunk (Scott) back him up on a whirlwind tour of roadhouses and bar and grills. Ripping through the 60’s – 90’s Rawly Punt takes no prisoners but he’ll leave you with a grin on your face… just as you look around wondering what happened to that last beer?
How Did Rawly Punt Form?
Hurricane Lily struck the Louisiana/Texas border in Oct. 2002. Our sister band Eden Automatic hit the road for a weekend in Louisiana, and our lives were never the same. Driving through South Louisiana, seeing the destruction we decided it would be wise to listen to the local radio station, and tuned into the New Iberia station. They were rocking out with ‘Nazareth’s Hair of the Dog’ (Now You’re Messing with a Son of a Bitch). This was appropriately followed by the Scorpions ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane’. Which was followed by ‘Nazareth’s Hair of the Dog’ (Now You’re Messing with a Son of a Bitch). Which was followed by the Scorpions ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane’.

WAIT A MINUTE! Yes – the radio station just played these two songs, over and over again. We kept coming up with all these different scenarios involving the radio station being blown away and these two songs being stuck in the player. We played our gig in Baton Rouge, and when we got back in the car to head to the hotel check the radio station… It was Chicago – an entire album of it… Hmmm… someone must have changed it. The next morning we headed to New Orleans. When we checked the radio they were back to the Nazareth/Scorpions rotation. The station faded out after a while. On Sunday we headed back to Dallas… When we hit Baton Rouge we thought we would check the New Iberia radio station, and sure enough, it was Nazareth/Scorpions. We listened to these songs until the station faded away.

Oh wait, that has nothing to do with anything, it is just an interesting road story. We chose the name Rawly Punt because we couldn’t read Rawly’s hand writing when we were trying to learn a David Bowie song, and thought that ‘rowdy part’ said ‘Rawly Punt’.
