Pete & The Pirates

Rarely, if ever, can Reading have had two of it's own bands playing on the opening day of the Festival it lends it's name to. Whilst Does It Offend You, Yeah? may have garnered all of the publicity over the past twelve months, if anything the stock of Pete & The Pirates has risen higher and faster during that time. Unknown last August, they opened the Festival on the (then) Carling Stage. Now they find themselves on the NME/Radio 1 stage and confronted with the biggest crowd of their lives. They do not disappoint and the crowd go justifiably wild for the likes of 'Little Death' and 'Mr Understanding'.

Cheese says: I had been napping on the way over, so I was a bit disorientated and didn't really get into them until the very end. Pirates are always cool, though.
