Pirates, The - Live in Japan

Following the premature demise of legendary rocker Johnny Kidd in a 1966 auto smash, THE PIRATES' name lay domant for a decade. But in the mid-70's the archetypal Pirates line-up - MICK GREEN (guitar), JOHNNY SPENCE (bass, vocals) and FRANK 'ALL BY MYSELF' FARLEY (drums) - reformed, inspired by the success of acolytes Dr. Feelgood. With the awesome Green wielding power chords out front, they were immediately hailed as 'The Godfathers Of Punk' by the rock press. The most brutal, hardest-gigging band on the circuit carried on to the early 80's, yielding three hit albums. When they reformed for a third time in late 1999, it was intended to be a one-off. However, such was the response that they continue to gig selectively. This live recording from Japan, where they toured at the request of Thee Machine Gun Elephant, is testimony to their enduring power.
