Bass

Chris "Patches"  O'Loughlin
 
O'Loughlin, a lefty, gained his nick name playing his first patchy lines on his sister Anna's righthanded bass flipped upside down.  He fell in love with tasty thump and built himself the lefty bass and the band of his dreams, Lo'Down on the Mothership.  Schooled early in jazz saxophone and later by bass sensei Carter Smith, O'Loughlin applies all he has to make every LDMS groove thump in the sexiest way possible.  He is inspired by those he loves, those he lusts, his mates (who he loves and lusts), idols and envelope filters.
 
O'Loughlin's groove idols are Bootsy, George, Sly and Louis.  He loves bass, Funk and to make YOU move.
