The Feelies are one of my favourite bands. I Listened to 'Crazy Rhythms' at the back of the Canvey Clipper bus to college when I was 17 on repeat. Even Eastern Lane did a passable cover of 'Fa Ce La' on that Rough Trade compilation from a few years ago.
Apparently they got back together a few years ago, but as far as I'm concerned if a band from years ago aren't 20 years old, skint and malnourished anymore I ain't interested.
The reason for me talking about the Feelies is that Domino Records are reissuing their first two albums - the perfect 'Crazy Rhythms' and the patchy 'The Good Earth', which is great news. If they come to the UK to play I might grudgingly go along and grudgingly admit they've still got it.
