The Local Firm (Arthur Fenn & Pete Marcinkowski) – Truancy
For those of you who know Arthur you will know how much of a rarity such a thing as this would be. But here it is. A fine selection of trippy rude instrumental hip hop tracks taken from mine and Arthur’s private collections. One on one off, vinyl records, turntables, cups of tea and the usual.
Recorded in an old school during the week when everyone else was at work (hence the title). This was in the final months of hanging out we had together before Arthur’s daughter Marla was born and I upped sticks and moved to Australia. I have fond memories of this period.
Arthur: This is for our friend Duncan. Without whom i wouldn’t have met the beautiful woman who has changed my life. Or many of the amazing crew of nutters I am privileged to call my friends. Leeds Essex Brum Manc Sydney. Youknowwhoyouare. X
Pete: Seeing as this was a joint venture i felt i should add a dedication also. I am dedicating this to you Arthur. A big brother, a teacher, an inspiration and one of my very best friends. We have had so much fun together over the years. Here’s to many more. Keep on doing your thing bruv. Much much love geezer. x
