The Good Ship, Brisbane’s favourite (and only) folk rock sea shanty porno country masters, are pleased to announce their Nautical But Nice Tour. November/December sees them taking their dark and dirty sounds across four states, culminating in a huge end-of-year party in their home port of the Zoo. A
s an early Christmas present they’re giving away their chaotic, carousing cover of the classic tune What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor?
The success of their debut album Avast! Wretched Sea and national touring in 2010 saw The Good Ship pillage spots at Woodford, Illawarra and Friends of Folk Festivals, get invited to play at Brisbane Festival, as well as plunder a large haul of rave reviews from around the country.
Their pelagic folk rock drew them praise for daring songwriting, wildly entertaining live shows and their patented mix of sweet melodies and dark, dangerous subject matter. In the world of the Good Ship it’s the good stuff that sinks to the bottom. As one reviewer puts it, ‘The Good Ship are a very bad ship – and all the more fun for it.’
Catch The Good Ship at the Mt Warning Hotel, Uki on Saturday.
