Happy New Year 2013!!

Yes folks, here we are with another new year and plenty on the horizon to excite Pirate friends and fans.

The New Year was kicked off with a bang last Saturday with a storming show at The Good Ship in Kilburn, London as part of a 5 band bill. The place was packed and we’d like to thank all those that not only took the trouble to turn up but also dance like there really was no tomorrow. A special mention must also go to the main act of the evening Giles Likes Tea who kept us all dancing after The Pirates had done their thing….

Looking ahead there’s some tasty stuff coming our way. We’ve got an hour long show at a new venue called Aylesbury Shootpool (yes, in Aylesbury) which is bascially a late night haunt where people can play pool and listen to bands. On Friday 25th Jan it’s our turn and we take to the stage at midnight – not for the faint hearted but worth turning out for and it’s free!

In February we hope to head back into the studio to record our second EP. We will most probably stick with the guys (Oxfordshire Music Rooms) who did such a good job on our free give away track “Those Fashion Stakes” which, incidentally,  is still available as a free download from this site via Soundcloud.

At the beginning of May we are back at The Good Ship in Kilburn again supporting Giles Likes Tea (bit of mutual respect thing going on here…) and the end of May sees us playing Lechlade Festival in the Cotswolds.

So, after a rather quiet and lazy end to 2012 where we disappeared off the scene for a while to recharge our batteries, you can rest assured that we are back in 2013 to cause more havoc and mayhem at a venue near you soon.

Also, watch out for some new material and website which will be surfacing shortly!

It’s all go…
