To merge rockabilly and swing was Pete's idea which he managed to fulfill with his band "Archives" . This time it has blended with the artist’s brand-new ideas!

And now at last - new style, new CD – „BRASS-A-BILLY” is out!
This CD can be easily called rockabilly for the 21st century!
Driving energy of the brass section, unstoppable power of slap double bass and guitar, solo statements of pedal steel guitar, fiddle, blues harp and cajun accordeon combined with quite unusual band’s line-up makes this CD a real gem, creating quite a unique mood!

“This CD is my humble vision of how to melt together different, most fascinating nitty gritty forms of early traditional American Roots music, like Blues, Hillbilly, Rock’n’roll, Rockabilly, Western Swing, Big Band Jazz…some Cajun, Zydeco and 50’s Pop with contemporary attitude and my deep lifelong obsession towards all these musical roots – into one new and exciting musical form.” - Pete Anderson

"Pete Anderson & The Archives" band, that has toured all over Europe, could be named as one of the inventors of such kind of swing and rockabilly combination. They were definitely among the predecessors of swing revival era, adding a new touch to those genres of music and inspiring many followers.
The CD includes also a multimedia part - video of Pete's version of Louis Prima's well-known song "Jump, Jive An' Wail". For many subtle listeners and viewers it gives a chance to compare it with some famous Orchestra video clip that was shown much later on MTV and draw their own conclusions.
This Pete's video, created already in 1991, had been included in the movie "Rock'n'Roll in Baltics" that was shown at many film festivals throughout the world, USA included.

As bonus tracks there are also two tunes by "The Archives", so that the listeners could get the right feel of the "way it all started".

Still the main intention of this CD is to bring you an outstanding, mind-blowing rockin' mood! You won't be able to resist!

'Undisputed king of 50’s American rock’n’roll in Latvia, living legend, walking encyclopedia of American roots music - Pete was among the very first generation of rockers in the whole ex-USSR.
Started playing music at the age of 14 after forming his first rockin’ band back in 1959.
Went through rough and hard times struggling for the right to play rock’n’roll when it was not officially accepted by authorities and KGB, had lots of serious problems in his life because of being in love with this “wrong and harmful” type of art.
After several transformations and different line-ups and names of his bands such as “Melody Makers”, “Natural Product”, “Doping”, “Archives”, “The Rhythm Kings”, Pete’s still going real strong, with his 5-piece “PETE ANDERSON & The AMERICAN DREAM” playing numerous club gigs and music festivals all over the country and Western Europe as well.
With his stylish, sincere and energetic performances he has successfully toured Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Italy, England and USA. Has been booked on the same bill as Bill Haley’s original Comets, Gene Vincent’s Blue Caps, Jack Scott, Billy Lee Riley, Hayden Thompson, Ventures and many other famous artists.

Has recorded 1 LP – “ Pete Anderson Live!” (1989) and
6 CD’s – “ Rock Around The Clock” (1995)
" Rockin’ Christmas Time With Pete Anderson & The Rhythm Kings” (1996)
“ Swingin’ As Always” (1999)
“ Texeclectic” (2002) Recorded in Texas, USA
“ Sentimental” (2004)
„ Brass-A-Billy” (2008)

For 2 years Pete Anderson ran Riga’s only rock’n’roll club called „Alligator”.

Organized three big International Rock'n'roll festivals in Latrvia
