This is the ship's log song for Hastings. It documents our unexpected road trip, due to bad weather, through Littlehampton, Eastbourne, Bexhill on Sea and through to Hastings. We encountered a great deal of good will from these communities, including the Littlehampton steel band, various shanty choirs, other drum groups and a man on a shark (built from a bicycle, along with other wonderful costumed bikes). This song was written in the back of the FILO pub in Hastings old town, just two hours before it was performed there as part of the ship's log concert with local musicians Steve, Liam and Richard (a massive thanks to them for being so great).
