Update for Walgesänge mit Begleitung:

Captain Ahab, this is not a cat from cats we meet on tourThere is homework to be done, all over November! — Says who? — Says Captain Ahab, in their weblog entry Your chance to be heard in a Captain Ahab song!:

Your chance to be heard in a Captain Ahab song!

Ok, here’s the deal. You record yourself singing along with the supplied file, and you will be heard on the new Captain Ahab record, The End of Irony.

Download AhabChantForFans.mp3 & record yourself singing along!

The lyrics are, “Power, Honor, Ambition, Future” repeated over and over again. Please submit a dry, isolated track of yourself (and/or your friends) performing this chant to this email address: fanchant [at] by November 30, 2009. You can submit any format you wish, but we prefer to receive 48khz, 24bit aiff or wav files. It’s preferable to send a link to a file than to attach a file directly to an email – but both are acceptable.

Captain Ahab, from cats we meet on tourSee Captain Ahab’s Myspace site for music and video examples, because “There is one God that is Lord over the earth, and one Captain that is lord over the Pequod.—On deck!” (Chapter 109).

I consider this one fine campaign by one utter supportable band to create some expectably fine music, using what online networking can offer, and I specifically encourage you to send your singalong soundfiles to Captain Ahab.

When you are done, please let us know here on Moby-Dick™, too: Internet is about curiosity and knowledge (and cats).
