GIBSON MARTIN &FENDER

A TRIBUTE TO THE PIRATES

Featuring former Pirates BJ Anders & Romek Parol with UK Blues Award winning guitarist James Oliver

In the Autumn of 1994 a new incarnation of The Pirates emerged. Senior partner of “The Firm” Mick Green teamed up with Romek Parol and they called on BJ Anders to perform bass and vocal duties.

They based themselves in Sweden as the market for their brand of fiery, no nonsense rock ‘n roll seemed to attract a larger audience and also gave them easy access to a new, emerging market in Eastern Europe.

They recorded “We’ve Been Thinkin’”, going over some old material as well as a number of new songs and also introduced a slightly new feel to the band but kept the energy levels that The Pirates were renowned for, at the same level.

Naturally, extensive tours of Scandinavia followed.

More recordings produced “Land of The Blind” shortly followed by a single of the same name.

Being known for their apetite for touring, more European, Scandinavian and Eastern European tours followed which led to being asked by ZZ TOP to open for them on their world tour in 1998.

Sadly only a few dates, mainly in Scandinavia, materialised due to various contractual hurdles.

In 1998 Mick Green was asked by Van Morrison to record and album in the UK – Back on Top – which led to him being recruited into Paul Mcartney’s band and thereafter into Brian Ferry’s band.

Although they continued to record and tour it became increasingly difficult to juggle all commitments, particularly as Parol became involved in a project with singer TJ Robinson and it led to a natural ending of the partnership of Green/ Anders / Parol

Sadly Mick passed away in 2010.

Anders and Parol carried on with their own respective careers. Anders  mainly engineering and  producing Swedish artists and Parol mainly as a touring / session player.

They both came across a remarkable young guitar player, James Oliver, in London at The 100 Club; he was support act to their short lived band The Spellkasters and they have since struck up a friendship and watched him develop into a very fine guitar player.

James doesn’t mind telling everyone that Mick Green is his all time favourite guitarist.

So the natural course was to form ……... Gibson Martin And Fender ……..

An evening of PIRATES music guaranteed .. Please Don’t Touch / I Can Tell / Shakin’ All Over / Drinkin’ Wine / Lonesome Train all in the set, plus many more !
