Go to our website, and scroll down on the spash
page. You can hear the first quarter of every song
right from that little steampunky machine:

Somthing else you might find interesting:

If you want to give that Steampunk feel to your website, copy the code from this little gizmo to your homepage, and it'll play this album for your visitors!

I'd love to check it out, once my internet starts behaving.

Lovely graphic design on the sleeve art and cd, by the way. I love how the cd looks like a mix between an old metal record and a sawblade.

March the first. I can not wait. I think my vault access should still be valid, not that its not worth paying for a renewal.

Also Robert hows the Rubberband ball going?

**PHEW** There now I have ordered an autographed copy of the album.  I feel so much better now...  I can sleep now as I forced myself to stay awake long enough to make the order.

Rubber band ball??

Is this some festival I've forgotten, or is this a roadside attraction near Gimpy Idaho?

That's a nice range of styles on there. Is "I am Stretched on Your Grave" a Dead Can Dance cover or an original? I couldn't tell from the snippet.

"I am Stretched on Your Grave" is actually an irish traditional. Its been covered a bunch. Dead Can Dance, Shenade O'Conner, Kate Rusby is my favorite.

Since the album has so many different exotic locations (which is meant to give you a very "World Traveling" feel, as the crew of the HMS Ophelia went on their adventures) it seemed throwing in a Irish traditional made sense.

Oh yes that's right. I forgot that was a traditional song. I should have figured since DCD have done quite a few traditional covers.

I like the way you stay light-hearted in this album, through the grape-shots and entropy. It really has an adventurous feel, which fits your style perfectly.

Oooh such a pretty box and such lovely sounds.  This may just have to go home with me after I recover from buying the entire collection of Girl Genus books.  I swear I would be rich if I want such a geek.

Oh, and thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou in advance for coming to NJ in September. I like it when my favorite bands play in my backyard...

Love the tracks, but I'm finding that selecting a different track does nothing, I just have to wait for them to play through in order.  Is it my browser? (I'm using firefox)

I found I have to hit a selection once, wait a half a second, and then hit it again.

Any chance you could post the lyrics for 'Airship Pirate'?  Grin
