Peggy Sue & The Pirates @ The Barfly, London (Live)

Peggy Sue & The Pirates

Used to touring by now after various support slots including Kate Nash and The Gossip Peggy Sue & The Pirates have finally come to take their own victory, and victory it was. With a sold out Barfly and a room full of very excited people it's hats off to the girls for all their hard work.

They deal in the slightly quirky but beautifully arranged; their harmonies are usually near perfect and their simple set up of acoustic guitars and stools really allows their vocals to shine. However there is still a commanding stage presence that isn't quite there, the crowd refused to stop talking in parts which made it difficult to appreciate the simplicity of their set, but songs like 'The New Song' 'Spare Parts' and 'Television' show off their inventiveness along with their ability to make quirk reachable by all. - Shot of Tuaca (DEMO)
