Peerless Pirates - Banquet For Bandits

Peerless Pirates hail from middle England – the pastures of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire serving as their stamping ground.

Their sound is a rollicking, roustabout mix of classic 80s energetic indie, sea shanties, rockabilly, surf-rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. “Rum-soaked fun” is a phrase often – and justifiably – bandied about. If you’ve forgotten the time when indie sounded fun, here’s your chance to get re-acquainted.

They have been around in their current guise since 2010 and have performed many gigs around Oxford and London to much critical acclaim drawing many glowing reviews of both their live performances and songs.

The summer of 2013 saw the band perform 2 sets at Glastonbury Festival and since then they have gone from strength to strength by supporting the likes of Big Country, The Monochrome Set, Mad Dog Mcrea and My Life Story and appearing at many festivals including Lechlade, Common People, Charlbury Riverside and Cornbury.

The band has played live radio sessions for both Recharged Radio in London and for BBC Introducing Radio Berkshire. Their songs have also featured extensively on BBC Introducing Radio Oxford and various internet radio stations.

To date the band have released 3 EPs, an eponymously titled debut album in June 2016 and have just released their long awaited second album, “Banquet For Bandits” in April 2019. The band look forward to promoting this and more at their forthcoming festival and gig appearances.
