Shanghaiing was a common practice among dockside pubs along the seasides. Two of its most famous practitioners were Larry Marr and his wife, owners of the Old Virginia Lowlands bar in the San Francisco area during its infamous Barbary Coast days in the mid-1800s. Many an unwary and unwanting sailor would belly up the the bar at Larry's place only to wake up belly down in a hammock on a merchant ship heading around Cape Horn with no way home for 2 years or more.

Vocals: all, Doumbek: Craig Lutke
