Xander And The Peace Pirates - 11:11

The best of Blues this month

TODO alt text

The novelty of frontman Keith Xander’s guitar approach – he lodges a plectrum in the hook of his prosthetic arm – is soon overshadowed by this band’s convincing splice of soul, blues and country.

On moments like Dance With The Devil and Fire, the Pirates make you think and move (respectively), and it’s all flavoured by spiritual lyrics that don’t get up your nose.
