Inspired by the gothic humor of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton, the noir storytelling of Raymond Chandler, the murder ballads of the Americana tradition, and the dramatic flair of the cabaret, they write songs that tell stories, exploring themes like love, death, crime, ancient mythology, and the paranormal—exploring the various kinds of trouble a couple of people can get into with a ukulele and a guitar. League of Space Pirates is a band of rock-n-roll outlaws from the future who kick out the jams while fighting the evil Übercorp. Led by Captain Orlok and his gang of assorted thieves, scoundrels, and robots, the League plays high-energy 25th century rock-n-roll in the name of saving the universe. They provide the very latest in multivalent entertainment: incorporating music, costumes, and comedy while broadcasting from their tourship and making periodic stops at their favorite rest stop — planet Earth. The brainchild of artist Noah Scalin, League of Space Pirates is a collaborative science-fiction universe that manifests in a range of media, including live performances, Internet broadcasts, music releases, comic books and more.
