HIGHTOWN PIRATES LIVE!
"… sound like the result of an orgy in the 70's at New York's Plato's Retreat with the members of The Style Council and Jethro Tull it was hard to spot influences amongst the varied musical offerings but that’s never a bad thing" (MusicMuso)

Simon Mason and his Hightown Pirates continue their residency at The Water Rats
This event co-incides with the OFFICIAL release of Hightown Pirates debut album 'Dry And High'

Q Magazine says about the album:
«Dry & High is a joyous, anthem-laden affair that evokes Arcade Fire 's sweep; Blood, Sweat & Tears' horns and the finer moments of Primal Scream's Screamadelica. These giant, uproarious songs are propelled by huge guitar riffs, Lilly Vasil's exhilarating flute and on standout Just For Today, Mason's shock and awe at still being alive.» **** four stars

In September Hightown Pirates supported The Libertines on their Tiddly Om Pom Pom tour of the UK:
“Meet Hightown Pirates, your new favourite band” announced Simon Mason, lead singer of the Hackney based multi genre ensemble who effortlessly fuse rock guitar with the delightful tones of a flute, backed by a heady brass section to bring you a melee of music which astounds and entices in equal measure.
They sounded like the result of an orgy in the 70's at New York's Plato's Retreat with the members of The Style Council and Jethro Tull it was hard to spot influences amongst the varied musical offerings but that’s never a bad thing.
By the sounds of things tonight… their debut album Dry And High will definitely be worthy of your investment ( MusicMuso )
