Tango Pirates: A term invented by the New York establishment in the 1920s, for the early blues and jazz musicians, who were seen as a threat to the youth of the day, seducing them to the devil’s music, sex and drugs.
TANGO PIRATES formed in 2011 by Danny Fury (Rogue Male, Lords of the New Church, Kill City Dragons, Vain ,Sham 69 , Dogs D’amour etc) and Vera Wild (Wild at Heart/ Jelly), joined by Dave Tregunna (Sham 69/ The Wanderers/ Lords of the New Church/ Cherry Bombs etc) and Timo Kaltio (Arthur Cane, New York Dolls)/ Hanoi Rocks/ Peckham Cowboys etc).
Back on Track EP was recorded in 2011. The launch finally came in 2012 to widely critical acclaim. (Veglam….best new and energetic band to come along in ages!)
A video to Monster In My DNA was filmed and the band toured all over the UK and Scandinavia.
At the end of 2014, Vera Wild (the last original member, apart from Danny Fury) left the band after recording the follow up EP In Transition, which was released in February 2015.
Other members Timo Kaltio and Dave Tregunna already left previously, to pursue other projects.
Danny Fury decided to keep going with a new line up, because he started this band as a vehicle for his songwriting and performing and sees it as a long term mission.
He found a new songwriting partner and guitarist/singer in Jack Flint and the two recorded Tango Pirates 3rd EP <Danger ! Children at play> to be released in early 2016.
Dave Tregunna joined the recording session, guesting on Bass.
Danny and Jack will perform as a duo at live gigs until the perfect Rhythm Section is found again. The Band is currently working on a video and playing live shows again.
Touring in Europe is the plan for 2016, as well as writing and recording new music.
Tango Pirates current line up:
Danny Fury ….lead vocals & drums
