Included line about song being in CWYA. Added link to CWYA page and wikilinks for Dave and Robbie.
This song debuted during the February 2020 livestream where it was announced to be one of the new tracks on a forthcoming album.
It was written as a mockery of the tendency for shanty singers to have to face criticism about their appearance, and the numerous outlandish qualifiers for being a member of a shanty band. The call back of "Big Chest!" is very likely a reference to the chorus traditional folk song "Big Man Sylvest" which often relies upon the audience to shout "Big Chest" after the line "A row of fourty medals on his chest."
It was written by Dave Robinson and Robbie Sattin as a collaborative effort and as such is a Longest Johns Original.
