This time last year, I went wandering round Cornwall, and landed in Falmouth right in the middle of the town’s annual Sea Shanty Festival. So, a year later, I thought I’d hold my own, building a show round the very best of metal’s seafaring songs from some of the usual suspects, and some not-so-usual. If this show doesn’t make you want to chop down the nearest tree, build a longboat and head out onto the high seas, there is something drastically wrong with you.

Elsewhere in the show, I get excited about how the first metal gig in Whitby for ten million years went, as well as planning the next one, Paul Houlton hands the Recommendations Corner over to his wife for one show while a new batch of bands is compiled, we pay tribute to a great man and some great music (I wonder who that could be?) and the World Tour goes all Bob Geldof and visits Africa, though unlike Bob, the tourists remembered to wash their underpants.

This show has been released slightly earlier than usual because I’m off to Hellfest in a couple of days – and I’ll be there on the 15th when the show was originally scheduled for release. We’ll be back to normal next month… and, of course, I’ll have written a massive Hellfest review.

And, of course, go here, yon heathens.
