Songs inspired by real life London stories.

This episode, Barflies, Bankrupts And The Open Seas.

By the mid 1800's half of Britain's Royal Navy was comprised of vagrants, layabouts and other unfortunates who simply found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Their misfortune was to the Crown's benefit and all carefully overseen and delivered by the Press Gangs.

The song 'The Crown's Keep' inspired by this tale and included in this episode, is available for free download at www.songsfromthehowlingsea.com
