Pirates Arrr Them

OK, so this is a bit of a stretch, but I came across a funky Puget Sound band called Pirate R Us, which I immediately fell in love with because they perform a song about pirate radio station KYAR, as in K-Y-AY- arrrh!!! Sounds like a cross between a chinese opera and someone stomping on a cat's tail. Truly arrrrful, but hilarious. The song's on their first EP, "Songs of Modern Piracy." Reminded me of me own time as a pirate radio DJ back, oh you don't really want to know. Anyone who has children younger than 10 knows that pirates are as popular as ever, and they're a great way to get kids interested in maritime history. So when a band like this comes along, it's cause for hope. The only thing missing is the parrot.
