The Losing Boys present Simply F&S

Soul in the hole – dug so deep, they were gone for days. Luckily the Losing Boys made it out in one piece to bring you this dirt heavy mix. I made my own artwork for it, ‘cos theirs was a bit small and well, it’s the music that really matters. Take it away, boys…

“This is a compilation born out of the budgies and my own love of old funk and soul records and we tasked ourselves to knock up a 40 minute mixtape each. Foo’s selection is Side A, the cheeky wee budgie boy is Side B. There was much crate digging for both of us. Constant calls and texts bagsying records, hoping there was no duplication and taunts about gems we had found. It’s been a wee labour of love as it did take quite some time to compile. Speaking for myself, I coud easily have just lobbed together loads of stuff that has been sampled by hip hop acts and the like, but I wanted to delve a bit deeper into my record collection to unearth things I had even forgotten I had and not to put on obvious and big records, though a few do surface here. So give your ears a blast of something different for a change, it fits perfectly on a CD too… Enjoy.” – Celtic
