Drunken Boat - Home

Someone on youtube recently made this video of my band's song "Home." I don't agree with the literal interpretation, but it's great to know people are still listening and moved enough to make a video of a song that's almost 20-years old. We were called Drunken Boat after the Rimbaud poem. Now there are several bands named "Drunken Boat" in this world, but we were first. I hadn't heard this song in awhile. That's me singing, by the way. Turn it up and enjoy!

I was listening to this when I was grading earlier. Now the end is going around in my head. C'mon, now. C'mon. Now. Etc. I'm enjoying it!

i saw drunken boat on a sub-freezing night in '90 or '91 in a small club in cincinnati. i was with like 4 friends, and there weren't but a few other hardy souls who made it out that february night. we had a few mushrooms and a couple of shots n beers, and drunken boat proceded to shred that room as if their was 300 sweaty, screaming people there. it was one of the purest rock n roll moments of my life. i bought everything they had for sale, and every single they released afterwards. i love them.

Todd,
I saw drunken Boat thrice.
Twice in NYc and once in Chicago.
They were beyond description.
I handed you a necktie with pink elephants on it at your Metro show.
thanks for the amazing memories.

I remember that necktie! Vividly. It makes me very happy that Drunken Boat left such a vivid impression with you. I'd love to read a "Top Ten Things I Remember About Seeing Drunken Boat" written by you. It would be lovely to see how much I might have forgotten. Feel free to email me directly if you come up with a list!

Oh, and Elizabeth, the same goes for you. That show in in Cincinnati was always legendary in my mind too...so glad there is someone else out there that can back my memories of that frigid night up. X
