Another masterpiece from Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew! I almost felt sad for Leviathan on this one (such big eyes) but then I forgot all about it when the kitty went ballistic. Great stuff 🙂
Sorry, but when I saw this I squealed
like a schoolgirl like a boss.
I just received a question via email, and thought that the wisdom I shared was just too splendid to be wasted on just one reader. So rather than replying to him directly, here’s the question and answer in all its public glory.
Q: Oh great, powerful and wise Bilgemunky. I’m listening to Cpt. Dan and during “The code” song he says “… and the captians daughter you’ll be sure to taste”. WTF does that mean? Did i just misunderstand the words, I don’t have any lyrics with me. If that IS what he says, what does that mean?

One week til Christmas, I’d say it’s about time I start sharing a little holiday joy. Fortunately, the world is full of piraty Christmas music videos, if only you know which rocks to turn over. So let’s start enjoying them! Today we start with Captain Dan in “It’s a Pirate Christmas”
If you’ve ever wanted to see Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew perform live (and who hasn’t?), then you really should have gone to Nerdapalooza this year. Of course, that piece of news is of no use to those of us who can’t travel backwards in time, which is why God invented Youtube:
(caution: they use the ‘F’ word rather a lot)
And as an added bonus, Captain Dan and some cowardly ninjas talk smack about each other. As before, there’s a naughty word or two: Continue reading
Where to begin when describing the wonderful oddity that is Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew? By all common sense, such an apparent novelty act should long ago have gone the way of the dodo. But the crew hit the ground with surprising momentum – their first pirate gangsta rap album, Authentic Pirate Hip Hop was a shameless joy to the ears. It seemed an impossible act to follow, and yet, a mere year later, follow it they did with Rimes of the Hip Hop Mariner. But rather than treating us to “more of the same” The Scurvy Crew expanded and developed their hip-hop pirate concept to make for an even better end product. And now, just one year since Rimes, the Scurvy Crew has struck again with their third album, From the Seas to the Streets. Continue reading
Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew
Captain Dan’s debut album, Authentic Pirate Hip-Hop, essentially redefined the pirate-core playing field. True, many brilliant albums have borrowed styles from non-pirate genres, such as metal, rock, and alternative. And other albums managed to create styles that were essentially unique. But prior to Captain Dan’s gangsta rap release, never before had a pirate band so unabashedly plunged into such dangerous waters. Hip Hop is not for the weak – but not only did Captain Dan and the Scurvy Crew survive their encounter with this tumultuous genre of thugs, drugs, and hos – they actually made it their bitch.

What happens when you mix rum and Crunk Juice…
I’m going to lay it right out – this review is going to begin with one relatively irrelevant criticism. It will then continue on to gush the praises of this album with shameless enthusiasm. And that’s just how it’s going to be. Continue reading
