Stuart Murdoch likes the band Felt. Do you like the band Felt?
Why yes, I do like Felt... There's not much more to say than that.
You could say which is your favourite Felt release, you could say "I love this about Felt" or "I love that about Felt". Come on, lets get passionate about Felt!!
Although it took me about five years to actually reach that point. Before that I would listen, get annoyed by Lawrence's singing and then turn it off (apart from Penelope Tree and The Day The Rain Came Down).
Now I really like them.
Though I really quite liked his voice on first listen, I can see how it must be instantly divisive.
So which release really made them click with you. My friend gave me Stains Of A Decade for Christmas and I'm really enjoying it. I need to get a studio album next.
is the most accessible record. 7 Cannons is great but the production is so foul, a weird synthetic chorusy sound over everything. Though it was produced by the Cocteau Twins bloke, so what do you expect, I guess. I think my favourite album is probably Poem of the River, though.
Also: their last album, Me and a Monkey on the Moon, is vastly underrated.
He was meeting a mutual friend. He was surprisingly talkative. Nice guy.
saying that she'd met Lawrence in a record shop and he'd basically told her to fuck off. But from what she wrote on here she sounded like the most annoying kid ever, so I'm not really surprised.
I think it was just because I was there and chatting to his friend so he thought I must be okay. Plus it was a sociable small talk conversation rather than me going "Wow, you're Lawrence from Felt!". That probably helped.
It just struck me that I met Lawrence and Darren Hayman last year. Does that mean I win indie bingo?
I thought they were both pretty perfect. Suggestions on where to go next?
'Back In Denim' if you like 'Me and a Monkey ...', it takes that sound and perfects it.
is the best Felt album in my view - Maurice Deebank's guitar is amazing on that album and the songs are great too. It's a classic indie pop album, not collapsing under the weight of its ambition like some of their other stuff.
On the later records (after Deebank left) there's a little too much Lawrence for my liking.
A lot of their records were badly produced for some reason. I love The Cocteau Twins, but god Robin Guthrie ruined Ignite the Seven Cannons - it's so badly produced you can barely listen to it (except Primitive Painters of course)
