ON hearing comparisons with Razorlight and the Kaiser Chiefs, I didn't hold out much hope for Pete and the Pirates.
However, after giving their debut album, Little Death, several listens, I'm pleased to report that I was wrong.
For the record, Pete and the Pirates sound more like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers (in their mellower moments) crossed with British rockers such as the Libertines or Supergrass.
They certainly have a style all of their own, and this means that Little Death is at times an engaging affair. Knots and Mr Understanding rattle along at a cracking pace, while Eyes Like Tar features some delightful harmonies.
