The story behind Airship Pirates comes from
nearly two decades of songs from "Captain" Robert
Brown. Songs like The Change Cage, the
chronicle of a future city, forced to live under
Victorian technology to prevent cultural advancement.
Songs like Twisted and Broken and The Clock Yard, about
mechanical men (Automatons) forced to build themselves.
And of course songs like Airship Pirate, about a crew
of misfit sky pirates doing their best to stay aloft,
while always botching up the job.
The Music of abney Park can be found at
Also, look for The
Wrath of Fate, the novel behind all these songs, due
out late 2011.
