REGAL ROCK & ROLL
Just around the corner from the light of day - Pete Wood (itinerant musician, London England) picked up hitchhiker Tracey Cayolle (guitar-slinger, New Orleans LA) just outside of The Women's Correctional Facility of Tallulah, Madison Parish, Louisiana.
Current historical studies place this event somewhere between October 31st 1896 and May 25th 2072.
Unperturbed by the fact that Wood was entirely incapable of piloting any form of automobile - the pair ultimately made their way to Clarksdale Mississippi - guided by forces of chance, coincidence, chaos, destiny & fate - a route reputably chosen by esoteric methods using cards & dice.
After procuring a case of wine, two steaks and a microphone - they rented a shotgun shack - property of Mr Robert Clay Esq - who drove a tractor & had seven sons - and began trading licks.
Thus it was - after 5 days & 5 nights - they had recorded an album - they called the album - and themselves - "THE PISTOL & THE QUEEN" because no-one said they couldn't & they wouldn't have cared if they did.
Since then they have travelled hither & yon across the Southlands - from barrooms to ballrooms, casinos to cathouses, juke-joints to gin-palaces - rocking, rolling, dancing, drinking, singing, smoking, living & loving - it's what they do - they're doing it right now.
Currently resident exiles in Memphis TN, they have a new album out - it's called "Surrounded & Outnumbered."
