  • Rockers,Ace Cafe,Motorbikes. JK and the Pirates did the UK proud.Could equal Gene Vincent or Jerry Lee any time.Pity the Beatles and crap driving got in the way.
  • I was dubious at first since I had listened to "Shaking All Over" covered by Donna Loren and that I didn't like at all. This band grows on you if you let it, it's no to say they are the best ever but what nice songs they recorded. They might be a One Hit Wonder but that's OK.
  • I've been meaning to check these guys out for about, oh I don't know - 18 years? Thanks to 'Mind the Baby, Mr Bean' for introducing me to them when I was .. five.
  • Spunky music:)
  • <3
  • mick green R.I.P.
  • Dressed as pirates? So lame... yet so awesome! CRAZY FUCKS.
  • i list the pirates and get sponge bob square pants? not impressed so far
  • they're amazing!

I find it revolting that J.K. & The Pirates haven't got more listeners and more recognition from these stupid modern music consumers that entitle themselves "cool" and "trend setters". Yeah, I have all the right to feel smug now ;). Long live Johnny & The Pirates ! [3]
