Just wanted to know if anyone has any info on 'Swashbuckler'? Some tabs maybe or anything about the instrumental that anyone knows? Did they play this a lot or was it only when John had left? The track on Callin' All is brilliant, absolute love the sound.

Think it originated from Cammy's style, they played it before John left, crept into the set as an encore tune.

I've managed to dig up a link to Steven Williams' old tab site that the death of Geocities crushed:

There is one video post JP on youtube, but if you are looking at it specifically to pick up guitar parts then it's no good, simply beause you can't even see Cammy for the best part of the video. I've always wanted to be able to play this song, but came to the conclusion that it is just the way Cammy and Lee play that make it so brilliant. It's always what I expected Cammy and Neil to sound like when them two jammed together :) brilliant song.

Yeah was just watching it then, never in sight really is he. I would have loved to have seen that played live, proper ace tune, but yeah your right really, only the two could do something so good together. Everytime they played probably not sounded the same once i reckon.

I think they're playing it in the La's Rapido clip where you see the band jamming in their rehearsal room

yeah they definitely are, the one on Callin' All is brilliant though they couldnt have recorded a better version i don't think. Is there no videos of the Marquee gig in 91? Or is there any of the C.F Mott gig in 87?
