"Sultan Pepper Review"

I still clearly remember the first time I heard Sultan Pepper. There were five of us sitting in the conference room at FUEL going through dozens of packages from local bands all looking to compete in our RockStar competition. It was a green CD ROM, not fancy or anything like that, very basic. So I had no expectations going in. Someone else in the room snickered at the name of the band, but due to being a massive fan of the Dire Straits song Sultans of Swing, they had already started to win me over in their namesake alone.
From the opening riff, the song had me hooked. The harmonies that kicked in midway through the first verse melted me and the chorus solidified it. Not only for myself but the other 4 judges in the room. That song was Super Palendromes.
We decided immediately that the band had what it took to be given the opportunity to play the stage at one our events and possibly win thousands of dollars.
The band impressed me so much with their live performance, that I had to have them come by the radio station to record a live session to broadcast live on my show for 20 minutes.
They are one of the most talented young bands I've seen in a very long time and are for sure a premiere act in the Calgary scene.

Sultan Pepper makes music they think doesn't exist yet. Let them know if you think they sound like another band and they'll quickly change their genre. With the help of some friends and other complete strangers, Sultan Pepper is set up for (at least mild) success. In March of 2009, Sultan Pepper won $10,000 in an Amp 90.3 (formerly Fuel 90.3) Rock Star contest. After spending all their earnings on Gameboy Colours, an indoor petting zoo, and a bunch of musical equipment, they found themselves broke again. Luckily though, Henry Small (Lead singer of the 80's Prism, Small Change, and random bands in Kamloops) took notice of the quartet and through either the kindness of his soul or a lost bet, donated some of his time, money, and expertise to help them produce their first album. The result of which are recordings that reflect both Sultan Pepper's creativity, and Henry Small's decades of musical experience. Since then, Sultan Pepper has begun to make their mark on not only the local Calgary music scene, but wherever else is willing to listen to them. In Calgary, you can hear them fairly regularly on X92.9 and occasionally at the Pengrowth Saddledome during NHL and WHL hockey games. South of the border, Louisiana Tech got a hold of their music in August and by early November Sultan Pepper had reached No. 1 on the University radio charts. These four young, Calgary hoodlums are now doing everything they can to increase their exposure, allowing people from all walks of life to experience their music.
