We Were Pirates is the name of a D.C. band conjuring images of a crew of swaggering seamen with peg legs and eye patches.

But in fact, the new CD by We Were Pirates, "Cutting Ties," is the work of one man. Mike Boggs plays all of the instruments himself in his D.C. apartment. We're joined by two of the members of the live configuration of We Were Pirates, Mike Boggs and Gabriel Fry, for an in-studio performance. They will be making an appearance Saturday night at the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame.
