..’I must not fail my Scour’..’I must not fail my Scour’..’I must not fail my Scour’..’I must not fail my..’ Ahh..how do’s Ping Pongers & Ghetto Funkers, just finishing off my punishment for deserting you all last week ‘..Scour’. That’s it, perfect timing, enough copying and pasting, lines are all done! Welcome, one and all (a week late..due to self induced temporary loss of Scour Power™), to Spinforth’s Weekly Soundcloud Scour #21.
So yeah, maaaaasssssiiiive apologies for deserting you all last week..took me a little longer than anticipated to ‘de-squirrel’ after ‘Hong Kong Ping Pong’s VERY VERY special 4th Birthday’. Funkin hell..what an incredible night that was..I think!? Truth be told, recalling specific details, after about 23:30, is proving to be a little bit very tricky! Photographic evidence, available right >>HERE<< though suggests it was rather BIG, and very animally! Squids, squirrels, pandas, moles, sharks, bears, rabbits, tigers, turtles, cats, dogs, zebras, Marios (yep, as in cart) aaaand THIS (love you Andy!), came along in droves to party with us, Stickybuds, Goodgroove and Will Streetwise at Falmouth Rugby Club. Mega belated ball love to all who got involved; help set up; help promote; sold tickets (all 300+ of them!); blow up balloons; partied hard etc.. together we/you made this a truly awesome HKPP 4th birthday party…bigUPs all our rad selfs!! Special shout out (and very blatant plug for a pard) to HKPP’s official, and highly recommended, custom made animal suit tailorer “FANCY BEASTS” (<< hit that friend link up to turn yourself into an animal..any animal..any time!), who finished her final stitch just 2 hours before kick off, and delivered the best party animal suits everrrr! Aaaaamaaaazing times had by all..on behalf of the whole crew..one final bloody big HKPP thanks to all!
Right then, on with this weeks Scour! Two weeks worth of Spinforthy favourites Scoured for you this week. Fortunately (for my spare time, or lack of) both the last two weeks have been slightly quieter on SoundCloud than of late (..a festival thing i'm guessing), so, I'm not delivering twice as many as usual here (well not quite..a little over quota again though perhaps), just my pick of the bunch of the last couple of weeks. As always, I don't proclaim that the tunes that make my Scour cut are necessarily the best tracks currently available for free download on SoundCloud, but they are definitely the ones that I've....been diggin the most; enjoyed playing out/have gone down nicely at recent gigs; have been sent to me by Scour followers and are considered worthy of Scour support; or even just ones that reflect my musical mood/mode at time of Scouring. Based on this tried and tested Scour formula, I'm hoping there's at least one tasty Scoured treat here for everybody.
Sooo..lap it up, show me thumbs, have a wicked weekend, aaand..Enjoy! x
