||Traditional Irish music as well as deep rooted South African folk have a lot in common in terms of music styles. A couple of
guys, some from Irish/Scottish heritage and others from their deep rooted Afrikaans heritage decided to do away with their
noisy punk rock riffs and look a little deeper into their roots. Combining it with the punk rock and roll they have grown up
on as a staple diet of their daily lives. T.S.P. began with a few teething problems at first as a new band. Firstly there was
the quest to find suitable members who would share the same interest as to where T.S.P. was going. This above all proved to be
the most difficult task as most young people today have forgotten their roots and ancestory and where their heritage has come
from over the years.
Mutiny abound ye scurvey land lubbers!!
After over a year of patience and almost giving up, some of the lads decided to give it one more shot which eventualy paid
Clint, Gene and Michiel showed up on T.S.P.'s door step foaming at their mouths. Too much Guinness or just plain
craziness? We will never know. One week of hard finger bleeding practice with the new lads, we all had a feeling
something was missing. It was out there, stuck in the briggs of a ship somewhere out at sea. As the winds changed towards us
we could hear it, the soothing wail of the most beautiful Violin to grace a mans ears.
The beautiful Miss Ankia flew into T.S.P. barely a week before the first show. Her talent and skill at Violin has welled up
many a teary eye at T.S.P.'s practices with the lads.
One week before the first show the impossible was achieved. A bunch of mostly complete strangers not only
pulled out enough mind blowing tracks for a show but also quickly became united as not only musicians but as a family and this
ladies and gents is their vessel. Their ship.
