Talk Like A Pirate Day

Six years ago, Guillaume de Frontenac le XVIII, Lightnin' Larry Powers, and two-time Ernst von Horlt award winner Leslie Pud came together in a studio for the first time. The results were dynamite -- within hours they had written and recorded the definitive single of their then-nascent band's career: "Jolly Roger". The song was a seminal work in the prog-shred genre; a testament to the transience of mortal existence, and the suffering that all living creatures must endure simply to call themselves alive. It was a stunning and timeless comment on humanity.

It was also about pirates.

In honour of Talk Like A Pirate Day, I play for you, salty sea-dogs and buxom wenches alike, "Jolly Roger" over at LUGs.com. You can watch it here.

I hope you still remembered the trademark "X marks the spot" riff.
