In the meantime, to tide over us ardent SP fans, Craig emailed an mp3 of a song entitled "It Just Ain't Fucking Funny." Some background on the track courtesy of Craig:
It's from the much sought-after, "Auchmithie Calling" (cassette release 1979 - only a hundred made). Its very rough, came from the first incarnation of the band - lets be honest its all over the place. We got rid of the drummer after the tape finished. You'll hear why. Will be re-releasing the scratchy old warhorse soon on CD for the demented, the obsessed and those who couldn't get the tape.
Some further information regarding the extremely rare Auchmithie Calling: It was the first of just two releases from The Scrotum Poles (on their One Tone Records), preceding 1980's five-song Revelation EP. According to Methven, the individual who handled the copying duties for Auchmithie Calling was likely paid for his services with a pint down at the local.
