CRAZY RHYTHMS (1980) was listened to all the time by college kids in the 1980s. I was one of them. The record has a unique sound. It manages to capture dark space, nighttime distance, like no other record I can think of. I have come to realize that it was thanks to the percussion work of Anton Fier. He left the band after the full-length debut. I saw the band perform in 1987 at the Berkeley Square promoting their follow-up to CRAZY RHYTHMS, THE GOOD EARTH. Billy Million strummed away furiously. The place was packed but the sound was different. If you get a chance check out ORK RECORDS: NEW YORK, NEW YORK. The Feelies can trace their pedigree back all the way to the original CBGBs scene. So even though their debut album was not released until 1980, they were part of the first wave of Punk. Also, the band released a new album in February, IN BETWEEN, and it is surprisingly good. Not CRAZY RHYTHMS good, but topnotch. It is worth listening to if only as a present tense "mystic chord of memory" connecting us to our cultural Ground Zero, the middle- to late-1970s.
would love to see them play these in a live show ;)
