So kids, are you ready for one of those strange treats from Nobody Records? Well, ready or not here's a track from mopehead's SS-MOPEHEAD CD called "My Boat".
Now if you don't know the back story of the SS-MOPEHEAD...here goes...
From the land of Yarn comes the tale of Captain Sinkwright, Sleepy Pete Ocean Sheep, and the Fish. SS-MOPEHEAD (a 14 song CD) tells of the Captain's relentless search for the Fish and of his love for the Ocean Sheep. Check out the SS-MOPEHEAD and Fly High with Nobody Records!
SS-MOPEHEAD was a strange concept CD that I put together. The tracks were recorded without the concept in mind, but soon it was apparent that the songs seemed to be connected in some strange way. I come from a seafaring family - my Dad was a Navy Captain in WWII and was in charge of a mine sweeper that kept our East Coast harbors clear of mines. I have always had a love of the sea and of water. My Dad would take me to fleet week to check out carriers and war ships and since he was a retired Naval officer we would get in to see all sorts of things the general public doesn't get to see. He would take me out on boats as often as he could so I spent time at sea, on lakes and going down rivers. I nearly drown a few times (in the family pool as a child) and I think the water in my lungs (and the fact that the human male at maturity is about 60 percent water) has given me a closeness to water and the sea.
here. From Jay's site (here)..."Captain Sinkwright is at the Port of Yarn loading up his boat getting ready for a voyage in search of Sleepy Pete Ocean Sheep. They meet The Fish along the way, The Monkey and his friends come along to help out. Plenty of danger for all. If you like pirates, boats, ships, sea creatures and cheese, we've got 'em. Click images above to start Flash animation, and sail off on the S.S.Mopehead for a very strange adventure out on the open sea."
And now for "My Boat"...
