The Feelies

I've been listening quite a bit to The Feelies lately. A relatively unknown , but highly influential New Jersey-band that operated from the late 70's till the beginning of the 90's. If you don't know them, think part Velvet Underground, part early-days Tom Petty. And sometimes the missing link between Television and REM. Either way, this is good stuff. Far too good to be ignored.

In 2008 they reformed and last year their first two albums - the classic 'Crazy Rhythms' and 'The Good Earth' - were reissued. Here is a snap from the last album, 1991's 'Time for a witness'.
