12 Sep 15 : The Jack Tars

From the four corners of the globe they came, from England, Wales, Australia and the United States, sailing under one flag - The Jack Tars. And who are these Jack tars, you ask? None other than Captain Sensible of The Damned, Slim Jim Phantom of Stray Cats, Chris Cheney of The Living End, and Mike Peters of The Alarm. A band of brothers reincarnated from the souls of dead men, The Jack Tars are destined to plunder the treasures of their collective past to create a new synergy of rock and roll forged from the bones of punk, rockabilly and modern alternative rock.


The band sets sail for ports of call throughout the UK this autumn, the dates of which will soon be announced. Catch The Jack Tars when they step ashore in your town to set light to the stages of the UK with a broadside of classics such as Neat Neat Neat, Rock This Town, Prisoner Of Society, Sixty Eight Guns and many more. Playing songs that have helped define a generation, and written by the hands that steer The Jack Tars, this furious four aim their ship towards new musical horizons and the promise of further rock and roll adventures. Grab a friend and climb aboard!
