TALENTED child musicians from Ulverston made their first appearance on national television this morning when they joined Bill and Louise on the BBC Breakfast sofa.

Pesky, which is made up of pupils from the guitar club of Croftlands Junior School, told the presenters about the "whirlwind" of being signed up to one of the country's most famous record labels, Fierce Panda Records.

The group consists of Kate Stamp, Megan Cooper, Niamh Angell, Joseph Jackson, Jessica Webster, Patsy Gillam and Harry Angell, and all seven members chatted on the BBC 1 morning show.

They talked about the great reaction they have had from industry experts, their songwriting and hopes of one day performing at Glastonbury.

Speaking on Breakfast, Megan, lead singer, said: "It just started as a band at school and it got bigger."

Fierce Panda Records, which has worked with the likes of Coldplay and Keane, have snapped the youngsters up and the band are planning to release an album in October.

Proud teacher Simon Cross put the group's early success down to their dedication to practice and writing their own songs.

He said: "Some of them have been in the guitar club since there were seven-years-old.

"We started playing cover versions by the Beatles. All of a sudden the children started producing their own songs."

Watch out for Pesky - a band of seven kids, aged 11 and 12 from Ulverston. They've just been signed by a record label and they're on BBC Breakfast and NWT today!
