Pirate Metal band Rumahoy just released their new album "Time II: Party" and to celebrate Captain Yarrface tells us about the song "Poop Deck Party". Here is the story:
My name is Captain Yarrface and welcome to the sea!!! This song has a massive significance on my life as it is based on a very real very true events.
We had a big party because parties are fun, and being pirates we had been drinking a lot of rum, well as the song says, I went outside and there was my crew and a bunch of other people and they had gotten so wasted that everyone had sh*t their own pants, I mean like a lot, on the floor, down the chairs, it must have been some kind of drinking game but yeah it got way out of hand.
I had woken everyone up and asked them what was up and they were still so drunk that they grabbed the poo and just started tossing it at each other, I guess when you are already covered in sh*t having someone else' sh*t thrown at you isn't the worst thing on earth, me, in good captain fashion, did a sh*t and joined in the fun.
Anyway, fast forward a few years I was telling Chrisopher Bowes from Alestorm about this night and he could hardly believe it and said if we ever make it into a song, he wants to be in on it. now it is common knowledge that me and Chris butt heads a lot but I agreed on one condition, that Chris pulls down his pants and takes a sh*t right there on the bus, and guess what.. he did, he sh*t and then I went, alright you can be on the song.
And that boys and girls is how poop deck party came to be!!
Welcome to the sea!!
