The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

A New Zealand song? Interesting.
"The Weller Bros. was a Sydney Australia shore-whaling company that operated primarily along the southern coast of New Zealand from 1830 to 1840."
A "Wellerman" refers to the captain of a ship that re-supplies a whaling vessel at sea and takes the harvested oil etc away
Edit: you are correct Corn. Sweet as... William Weller, owner of the Amersham Brewery in England. Brother and nephews Edward & George
set forth to colonize N.Z. in 1828, and WERE the Wellerman about which this song was written!
Witchcraft... Oh, but it IS. A dark and terrible magic...
