INTERVIEW: The Dread Crew of Oddwood, A Pirate Rock Band

Even though I am the SPACE Pirate Queen, I can still appreciate the music of land pirates. Wolfbeard O’ Brady, the captain of The Dread Crew of Oddwood, took time out of sailing the high seas and making music to answer questions for our blog. Gizzy B and I have seen this band perform a couple of years ago and their fun energy have always made an impression on me. They were out of control, stomping around and played great pirate-y music. Imagine my surprise when one of the band members has been reading our blog all this time! I was happy to do an interview with them. Besides, us pirates have to stick together.

These pirates are not only hot but they make great music. Take a listen on their Facebook.

Where did the name of the band come from? What is the origin story of  The Dread Crew of Oddwood? Tell me more about each of your pirate tales and history.

The Dread Tale of Oddwood begins in 1735, a time of endless bounty and exploration. It’s a long and adventurous epic that tells of how the Dread Crew was brought to the present through temporal rifts in the Atlantic Ocean, and how we started playing our music for American audiences in 2008. While it is too long to recount here in explicit detail, you can read the whole story on our website.

I was rewatching the extended version of Return of the King tonight. The end still makes me a little teary, despite how many times I’ve read the book or re-watched the movie. Yeah. What. I love the damn series. Sue me.

Also, just to get it out of the way– NO, I am not Orlando-Bloom-crazed. I admit that he’s a fine young man with many upstanding physical qualities, but seriously not my type. Infact, I’ve had my eyes on the two actors who played my favorite hobbits: Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd. I decided to get on Google and searched for the big fansites to get news on Billy Boyd. Not quite so much on Dominic Monaghan because I basically know what he is up to (looking for another job after LOST and, uh, having all kinds of fun with his hot girlfriend, I’m pretty sure… they haven’t broken up, have they? ;]). I went and checked Boyd’s Official Site, and lo and behold… I discover his band, Beecake.

Yeah. I’m totally behind all the “Hobbit” news. Sorry. My bad.

I’m actually really excited that he’s pursuing his musical career. I love Billy singing. It’s one of my favorite scenes in Return of the King!

All right. I couldn’t have a geek blog without mention some Hobbit-love at one point. Check out Billy’s band.. and enjoy!
