Sev Lewkowicz voice and all instruments

Sev first recorded A Salty Dog as a demo with the reformed 70s prog-rock band Gracious! in 1996, as part of a musical interpretation of Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It was recorded but unmixed when creative difficulties led to the shelving of the Gracious! project; work resumed early in 1997 when Sev started work on Mariner on his own, in his own studio, going back to his own Atari demos.

The present track is a remixed and edited version of the Salty Dog on that album, which was issued under the name of Nostromo.
