Flight of the Filthy Vicar
What would Caribbean pirates sing if they were alive today? The Flight of the Filthy Vicar is the definitive example of classic pirate music dragged, kicking and screaming, into the modern age. From the tribal beating-to-death of garbage cans and other invented percussion instruments to funky rhythm guitar and accordion solos, if you are a pirate fan, you will not be disappointed. The formula isn't complicated; mix a little Blackbeard, a little music technology and a good dose of insanity and, voila, you get RustMonster: a unique band that writes and records strictly pirate music. RustMonster exists for one purpose: the musical enjoyment of it's members and it's fans. Most members of the RustMonster band have been involved in many musical endeavors. Too often, as demand for gigs, recording deadlines, and other factors, turn musical endeavors into more work than fun. Members of RustMonster never want music to become work again. The music is written to be fun to play and to listen to. If audiences latch onto the music, and they seem to, RustMonster thinks that's just groovy. RustMonster limits gigs to a minimum-perhaps 8 a year. This is in an effort to keep the Rustmonster project fun and to not turn it into drudgery. At gigs, the quality of the audience means everything. Rustmonster is more concerned about playing for audiences that laugh, scream, and dance than anything else. It is always more about the crowd than the cash. RustMonster's main goal is to continue recording entertaining, pirate-themed music for as long as it remains interesting to them and enjoyable to their audience.
