yup, still stuck in my head. I was on the driving range today knocking down cones singing it. My partner thought I had lost my mind.

LI Pirate Fest - Brigands

I'm stuck between GUNS OF HAMPTON and Don't Forget Your Old Shipmate.

It depends on which ear I'm listening to. B)

Master Hook, t'were a pleasure meeting you ! I had no idea we had such venerable pirates here on the Island of Long! If'n ye liked "Guns of Hampton" be sure to pick up a copy of "Ship Happens" when it's released later this year. It will have "Guns" on it plus many other new tunes we have been working on - all liable to reside in your ear for an extended time!

Release date for "Ship Happens" will be just prior to Yule! We have so many new songs to add that we pushed it back a bit.

"Guns" will certainly be on it! We'll be performing it down in Marcus Hook this weekend.

Finally, finally, we go into the studio this weekend to record "Guns of Hampton". It's been a long and trying after season for us, but "Guns" and 18-19 other tunes will be released by the time the Pirate other Salty Ball comes around at end of Feb.

Ship Happens... it certainly does !!

For those who have not yet gotten a copy of The Brigands CD "Ship Happens", we'll have plenty down at Blackbeard next weekend.

It has the song "Guns of Hampton" on it, along with 20 other tunes.

You can also pick up the Guns of Hampton t-shirt, which commemorates the 25 guns mentioned in the song, from Robins Dockside Shop, who will also have a booth at Blackbeard. Its a cool t-shirt, with Mr. Ben Cherry as Blackbeard and all 25 guns listed on it.

Truth be told (and ya didn't hear it from me) Master Blackbeard shed a bit of a tear over Capt Moreau's mention...

Ahoy Thighbiter -

While listening for the first time to the song Ship Happens while on 95 South after the Salty Ball, for a moment I thought the CD player broke. :rolleyes::D

Anything new planned for this year???

LOL, Hook, you're not the first to get fooled by that track!

Right after Ft Taylor, we go back into the studio to record our 7th ( !) CD,

Working title:

Well Hung

But we won't release anything until 2013.
