Pirate Music takes you on an Idiodyssey


(GRAND PRAIRIE, TX)—October 23, 2012—Ibidis Mortem Productions is proud to present “The Idiodyssey”, the new nautical music album from the Dallas/Ft. Worth-based pirate band, the Bilge Pumps. Rollicking between goofy pirate comedy music, somber and tragic stories of woe, and fun drinking songs, this CD takes traditional nautical tunes and gives them a piratical overhaul flavored with the Bilge Pumps’ brand of goofy comedy and musicality.

“The Idiodyssey” is the band’s first strictly nautical music album in over six years and it features sixteen tracks of music for that salty dog in everyone. This recording, being a touch more serious-minded than the group's prior albums, is a culmination of two years worth of rehearsal, recording, and mixing, and is the band's best sounding album to date. The album contains new songs (both traditional and original) as well as newly recorded version of songs from the group’s out-of-print earlier CD's… including such classic songs as “The Ballad of Sam and Marie” and the fan favorite “Johnny Jump Up”.

The Bilge Pumps are a pirate-themed music group based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that specialize in performances that combine sea songs, shanties and Celtic Music with a huge dose of silly comedy. These pirates have been in demand all over the country for their entertainingly goofy stage antics, their well blended and harmonic voices, and their musical skill as they take everyone’s favorite nautical and Celtic music and put their own particular spin on each one. They boast 5 other CDs and 2 DVDs for the enjoyment of landlubbers and salty dogs alike, and simply cannot get enough of hamming it up in their own unique improvisational way.
