Album Notes
Banastre Tarleton is the second son of a U.S. Navy Petty Officer and World War II Australian war-bride. His early years were spent in Philadelphia, PA. and Mexico, Missouri. When he was ten, the family finally decided to settle in Missouri, in part, to be near the father's parents who helped raise Banastre and his brother.

Banastre planned a career in the military but a motorcycle accident during his high-school senior year landed him in the hospital with a serious knee injury. While recovering, he watched The Dave Clark Five and The Kinks perform on national television and, as they say, the rest is history.

He cut his rock 'n roll teeth with Missouri favorites The Koxmen and Pandora's Box, and then went on to form Triphammer, a hard rock powerhouse complete with makeup, platform boots, and a stage show a la Alice Cooper and KISS. Triphammer won critical acclaim with "Panzer President," a single about Nixon and the Watergate Scandal, but disbanded after six years of extreme decibel levels and Seventies-style mayhem.

Taking the advice of a friend in the business, Banastre started Banastre Tarleton Band as a vehicle for his songwriting. He now has 22 self-produced releases on his own label, Green Horse, and four more on Caprice International, a company founded by former Bill Haley & The Comets keyboardist Joey Welz. Banastre Tarleton's music has been included on the original compilation projects, "KSHE Seeds Vol. 2" and "KFMZ's Missouri's Best." His '80's power pop single, "She's My Favorite Girl," reached the Billboard top 40 charts. Other BT songs receiving international airplay include "Electric Women" (mid-west college charts), "Redwings", "Cruisin'" (Cash Box/Indie Focus), "Attack Iraq" and "Eye For An Eye" (#1 in Costa Rica).

A loyal and ever-growing fan-base has been established from years of touring throughout the United States and Canada. He has headlined shows from Las Vegas to Daytona Beach and has been the opening act for Janis Joplin (he was fresh out of high school), Rush, The Canned Heat, Mel and Tim, Missouri, Guess Who, Uriah Heep, The Ventures, Twisted Sister, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Head East, The Rascals, and Molly Hatchet.

Banastre Tarleton is currently playing with guitarist Dave McGowan in a duo called Oatmeal For The Foxhounds and performs a vintage keyboard show as a solo artist. His musical therapy project, All You Need Is Love, has entertained patients and staff alike at St. Jude Hospital in Memphis Tennessee; Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock, and UMC Children's Hospital at the University of Missouri-Columbia. The project participates in many worthwhile events, including the Jerry Lewis Telethon, Kinko's Kid's Day, and Burns Recovered Camps. Banastre Tarleton is alive and well and still going strong with a musical career that has spanned three decades.
