Champions Vs Shadows #2 Champion: Governing Dynamics

Winner: Governing Dynamics
Runner Up: Heather Zink

Congrats to Governing Dynamics.  He has evened the CvS series 1-1, and in doing so has become the only person to win multiple contests here!  Make sure you e-mail me about your free t-shirt, so I can get that to you.

Judges: Jailhouse Payback, Ted Kiper, Emperor Gum & T.C. Elliott
Guest Judges: Ian Ferguson & Zack Scott
Alternate Judge: N/A

I want to give a big THANK YOU to all the competitors, judges, guest judges, fans, Tom for hosting the LP's, Matt for the album art, and anyone that had anything to do with this contest.  None of this is possible without the participation of all you wonderful people.

Here's how the winner was decided.  6 competitors sent in their votes, and it was a tie 3-3.  The tie breaker was the judges votes.  That ended up being 5-1 in favor of Governing Dynamics.

This was a fun side project, but we will get back to SpinTunes in January.  The exact date won't be set for a few months, but expect sign-ups to go up in mid-late December.  Make sure you follow @SpinTunes on Twitter for contest updates.


Governing Dynamics: Governing Dynamics won Spintunes 5, allegedly.

Kevin Savino-Riker:  The champion of Spintunes #1, and coming out of semi-retirement, Kevin has served as drummer, bassist, guitarist and lead vocalist in a number of bands over the last two decades.  He is uncomfortable writing about himself in the 3rd person.

Ben Taggart: I'm a software engineer that loves music.  I have decided that I have music to share.  Time will tell if I am right, or if any of it is any good.


R1:  Master Of My Destiny

R2:  Ballad Of The Mushroom Kingdom (Shadow) Deadline Victim

Mick Bordet: Since his last SpinTunes outing, Mick has released two albums of instrumental music featuring everything from zither and bouzouki to flutes made from walnuts and a drawer full of kitchen knives. Who knows which weapons of musical destruction he will deploy from his arsenal this time around? One thing is for sure: it won't result in a top ten hit single. Thank goodness.

Rob From Amersfoort: Although born one year after their break-up I grew up listening to The Beatles. I like to be creative, that's why I write and record music. I call my music PRIP (post-retro indie-pop); catchy, acoustic-electric slightly psycho/experimental songs with personal lyrics and lots of backing vocals. I don't like dull & boring so that's why most of my songs tend to be short.

R2:  Deadline Victim

The Boffo Yux Dudes: Old guys who do know better. The Dudes started in 1987, reformed in 2009, and got time off for good behavior. Now they attempt to do music. Allan Morgan, Tom Giarrosso and Scott Mercer head this version of BYD with rabid optimism that they'll be remembered for more than just all those replays on Dr. Demento. Record holder of most shadow songs submitted. Piggly Wiggly Enthusiasts. We live 3000 miles apart, so cut us some slack.
