Sink a tankard of ale and give these troublemakers a jolly good listen.

More seafarin' shenanigans from East Town Pirates and their boozy pirate punk rock. The East Anglian song smugglers sailed back to shore after taking their self-titled debut to the land lubbers, devouring every ale house drop and fiery wench in sight. (Probably...)

Second album 'Seven Seas Of Sin' sounds as if Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards and the New York Dolls indulged in a post-show drinking session with a gang of rowdy sea fisherman singing tales of salty seamen, booze and dangerous women, and recorded the results before the evening descended into unconscious silence.

Of course, there are laughs to be had; a register of band members with names such as Rikki Rumoldrew (vocals), Kutthroat Kev and Admiral Jonnie Murder (guitars), Shameless Seamus (bass) and Zak Coustea (drums) is not begging you to take the whole thing too seriously. But we're not talking about Punchline Rock (that'll never catch on) bands like Steel Panther, no. East Town Pirates will raise a smile but their gravel voice-fronted punk rock does more than enough to impress. Rikki Rumoldrew is clever enough to know when to add a little smirk and when to make the words so dirty you might need a wash afterwards.

The choruses are instantly available for a sing-a-long; 'The Curse Of Captain Blood', 'Throw Your Arms Around Me Darlin'', 'One For M'Lady' and 'Seven Seas Of Sin' were made for crowd chanting with anchor-sized hooks swaying from Rumoldrew's ragged voice and those lively, fizzing guitars.

In a time when the world is full of bad news it's a pleasure to have a band like East Town Pirates around. Sink a tankard of ale and give these troublemakers a jolly good listen.
