September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. How did this happen? I don’t know but last year I celebrated the occasion by making a home recording of a song I wrote when I was in And How—a band that also featured Jane Carver and (at various times) either David Enright or Christian Schmit.
We wrote a bunch of songs together that all featured themes of the sea: oceans, sailors, rats and yes, pirates. Below is my solo recording of “Pirates” from September 19, 2008.
