about

We are back to the high seas with our fifth album "Shake Those Bones", our follow up album to "Skull and Magpies". Ten new tunes plus a hidden track inspired by rogues, reprobates, romance and rum. There's shades of ska, celtic flavors, a cumbiaesque song, a cajunesque song, a song in French, a song in Irish and more.

This is not your Disney pirate fare or rehashed trad -- oh no. And I can say with confidence that you've never heard anything like it. Take a listen and tell me if I am wrong ;-)

The beautiful album artwork is by fine artist and illustrator, Dale Horstman. He captured the feel perfectly! Dale did the artwork on "Skull & Magpies" also.

We recorded at Wally Sound in Oakland, once again to 2 inch analog tape, then mixed down to digital. Wally engineered, mixed and mastered. Wally gives good sound!

SHAKE THOSE BONES

Oh aye, this life is a mystery
What happens next is anyone's guess
It's a game of chance, luck and happenstance
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and call
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, how will they fall?

LA CHANSON DE JEAN

Ô, Nuit lente,
dépêche-toi
Vas-y vas-y vers l’aube
je t'en prie, mon amour m'attend

Souffle, souffle, Vent
bon et fort
Gonfle les voiles sans cesse
je t'en prie, jusqu'a qu’on y arrive

Océan, porte moi
vite à travers tes ondes
Emmène-moi à celle que j'aime qui est tellement si loin!

Volez, volez, les Mouettes
au milieu des nuages
Dirigez-vous ​​vers la côte
et dites-lui que je viens, je viens

Océan, porte moi
vite à travers tes ondes
Emmène-moi à celle que j'aime qui est tellement si loin!

COLD HEARTS ABOUND

Where ‘ere I go
There’s guile and deceit
I keep a wary eye
on everyone I meet
So often profit captivates
lucre has its charms
for which many a sordid rake
will gladly do one harm

I cannae trust a soul
for most will lie and cheat
even those I know
who seem kindly and sweet
Countless craven reprobates
of every stripe and shade
are pleased to take and take and take
by pistol point or blade

Cold, cold hearts abound
as far as I can see
The coldest heart I found
was the love who betrayed me

THE CARDS ON THE TABLE

The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

The King doesn’t notice
perhaps he doesn’t care
He’s too busy winning money
and counting up his share

The Ace of Hearts is shocked
as is the Deuce of Spades
All the Diamonds and the Clubs
start to feel disarrayed

The King, slightly miffed
looks up from his hoard
saying “Shuffle and deal.
I’m a very busy lord!”


The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

Yes, the Queen has her Jack
and the Jack his Queen
While the King counts his money
assiduously

TEACH TÁBHAIRNE MHAILLÍ NÍ DHUIBH

Tabhair dúinn rum, a Mhailli
Tabhair dúinn rum
Tabhair é go tapa
mar tá an-tart orainn
Is é an leigheas is fearr é an rum
Tá orainn leigheas linn
Brostaigh ort, a
spéirbhean dubh!

Tabhair dúinn rum, a Mhailli
Tabhair dúinn rum
Tabhair é go tapa
mar tá ar mugaí folmha
Táimid ar maos in airgead
Is againn atá an saol
Brostaigh ort, a
spéirbhean dubh!

Sláinte agus táinte
Sláinte agus táinte
Sláinte agus táinte
Caith siar é!

Bring us rum oh, Molly Black
Oh, Molly bring us rum
There’s a fearsome thirst upon us
which only rum will slake
So quickly bring our remedy
That one and only cure
Tarry not, sweet Molly Black
