"Pirate Video Company @ Jersey Live Festival"

Back in the JT Live Lounge, local foursome Pirate Video Company are something of a revelation. Their incendiary brand math-tinged punk rock recalls the likes of Hundred Reasons jamming with Don Caballero, or an earthier, youthful version of Glassjaw. They encourage the audience to engage in pillow fights and by the end of the set the JT Lounge's previously elaborate furnishing looks like a bomb's hit it. At one point even the local constabulary get involved, breaking up a "wall of hugs" out front to uncharacteristically escort two over-enthusiastic revellers off the premises. More importantly, they have songs too. By the bucketload in fact; 'Ripley' and 'Playground Rules' both standing out impeccably. Mixing rage with caustic humour, we suspect you'll be hearing more from these guys in the not too distant future. - Drowned In Sound - Dom Gourlay

Bio

Pirate Video Company are a 4-piece alternative/punk band from Jersey Channel Islands. Forming in late 2007, PVC started out trying to replicate the sound of bands such as The Cribs and The Rakes, but as time went on they began playing heavier music, drawing primary influence from bands such as At The Drive-In, The Blood Brothers, Refused, Biffy Clyro and Foals.

In 2011 PVC moved away from Jersey to Brighton where they lived and played gigs for a year. They played shows with many notable bands including; The Xcerts, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Uffie and Sucioperro among others. During this time they also recorded their 2011 self-titled EP, 8-tracks of raw emotion and in your face, straight to the point lyrics. The EP was self-released and the band sold hundreds of copies simply through selling CDs at shows and through their online merch shop.

In June 2011 Pirate Video Company were invited to play the BBC Introducing Stage at the legendary Glastonbury Festival.

In February 2012 PVC decided the time was right to return to the studio, they chose to record with Jason Wilcock at Stakeout Studios (Reuben, The Ghost Of A Thousand, We Are The Ocean, Charlie Simpson) and what began as another EP would eventually blossom into a full length album, the Stakeout sessions would take a whole year. With the album sessions now complete, the band plan to continue to gig and seek a record label to release the album.
