Peerless Pirates are back at the O2 (upstairs) for a hometown headline show in assocation with TIGMUS.
"...a real stonker of a tune."
"...that seemingly rare thing, a band who simply sound like they’re having the time of their lives..."
"...wouldn’t it be great if more bands sounded like they were having as good a time as Peerless Pirates..."
"...hang from the rigging, cask of rum in hand, and have all aboard dance a merry jig..."
"...tracks that encourage grog swigging with their piratey rhythms..."
"Oh that is beautiful, that is absolutely beautiful..."
"...like an upbeat, happy version of The Smiths..."
"...the individual songs are all well-constructed, melodic and ooze character..."
"...classic indie welded onto rugged, shanty-style basslines..."
"This music is designed to have you oscillating wildly..."
