"Peerless Pirates hail from middle England – somewhere between The Cotswolds and The M4 corridor should cover it - but nowhere near the coast surprisingly...
Their sound is a rollicking, roustabout mix of classic 80s energetic indie, sea shanties, rockabilly, surf-rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. “Rum-soaked fun” is a phrase often – and justifiably – bandied about. If you’ve forgotten the time when indie sounded fun, here’s your chance to get re-acquainted.
The band have released 2 EPs to date, their debut EP entitled “Thieves & Miscreants” in 2012 and their second EP “Nelson’s Folly” which was released in October 2013 and in September 2014 they released a single called “El Gringo” bringing a Mexican flavour to the proceedings which was accompanied by an official music video."
"My name is Hannah Calavera and I have been a tattoo artist since 2010, originally starting out in Reading, Berkshire.
As of 2015 I split my time between Black Rabbit Tattoo studio in Newbury, Berkshire and Arkham Tattoo studio in Kidlington, Oxfordshire. I also do various regular guest spots around the UK."
I've had the pleasure of working alongside Hannah at Jericho Tattoo Emporium, and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She has a very distinctive style and loves tattooing all things nature themed and full of colour. I've learned a tremendous amount whilst working with her, and hope to have the pleasure of doing so again at some point in the near future.
