The Rogues

Biography

The Rogues and Clandestine are both Celtic bands from Texas, and their origins overlap. The band that in 2001 is the Rogues was originally formed in 1987, and at that time, was called Clandestine. Initially comprised of Lars Sloan, E. J. Jones, Randy Wothke, and J.W. McCormick, they played the Renaissance Festival circuit, performing mostly traditional pipe and drum music. Then in 1993, Jones departed, to attend Carnegie Mellon University. Thomas Campbell joined to replace him. Next, Lars Sloan and J.W. McCormick left. Sloan also chose to reserve the right to the use of the name Clandestine in the future. The remaining members needed a new name, and at Sharon Wothke's suggestion, chose the the Scottish Rogues. The lineup at that time was Randy Wothke, Tom Campbell, the returned E.J. Jones, and Paul Rendon. During this first year together as the Scottish Rogues, they did not record any albums. It was also then that Bryan Blaylock first introduced himself to the revised group, bringing in a bodhran. In the summer of 1995, Paul Rendon and E. J. Jones left. Jones then contacted Jennifer Hamill, whom he knew from attending Carnegie Mellon. They and Lars Sloan together formed a new group using the Clandestine name. The remaining members of the Scottish Rogues, Wothke and Tom Campbell, invited Jimmy Mitchell and Bryan Blaylock to join the group. They recorded their first album in August of 1995 and released it on tape only at Texas Renaissance Festival. At this time, the band began to expand their touring circuit by traveling to such venues as Scarborough Faire, Castle at Muskogee, Dickens on the Strand in Galveston, and Victorian Christmas in Austin.
