Pete & The Pirates
Pete & The Pirates are bright, young commanders of a brand of unique Englishness. Pete and The Pirates blend of smooth edged punk and pop produces music which is sweet, raw, joyous, melancholic, raucous and tender. The Pirates idiosyncratic and endearing song writing puts them somewhere between the Flying Nun band Tall Dwarfs and the wistful reflection of On The Beach-era Neil Young. "a beguiling mix of all sorts of good things: the harmonies, the jaunting hummability of the Sixties beat bands the ramshackle charm of the Libertines, the singalong cheeky-chapiness of Supergrass" - The Sunday Telegraph 4**** "...unique and thrilling" Q 4**** "Brashly romantic punk pop" Time Out 5***** "Perfect pop without the pretence" NME 8/10 "'tunes that get under your skin after one listen. there's life in Brit-guitar pop yet." The Guardian 4****
